The 10th Balochistan Assembly witnessed a prolific first parliamentary year with the passage of 21 treasury-backed bills, including landmark legislation on domestic violence, education and rehabilitation of victims of terrorism. The House adopted 59 resolutions mostly seeking improved governance and economic development in the province. Impressively, 97 percent of the legislators participated in the House proceedings.

The House managed to pass twice the number of bills compared to the previous year. However, following last year’s precedence, none of the private members’ bills were passed. Half of the bills passed this year were amendments to existing laws, while the remaining were new pieces of legislation.
