The new website of the assembly was launched on April 11 and contains up-to-date information about legislative and non-legislative business of the house, its workings and members.
“We have attempted to bring uniqueness in every aspect,” said the assembly’s additional secretary and director IT Attaullah Khan while talking to the media.
Khan said they have made a basic structure and will work on it further for two to three months to make it a ‘masterpiece’. The site will also offer a virtual tour of the assembly.
Mr. Khan also said the new website allows assembly members to personally update the information on their pages, however, after the changes webmasters will receive a formal approval request. The site also publishes all legislative and non-legislative business of the house.
Khan said the website also provides the public with the opportunity to view assembly sessions through a video stream and provides tickers, news and other updates from the house. The website also provides for an online chat forum where visitors can interact with assembly staff.
The administrator for the website, Shahbaz Farooq, said though the site has become operational, they are still working on improving it and putting all the old data online.
