Senator Sania Nishtar’s Bill to provide for the protection of street vendors livelihood


October 28, 2023: Senator Sania Nishtar presented a Bill titled “A Bill to provide for the protection of street vendors’ livelihood” to the Senate Standing Committee, stressing once again that the institutional framework and regulatory arrangements embodied in the law draw on insights from a highly successful pilot and that if implemented effectively across federal and provincial jurisdictions, the law can be transformative for the livelihoods of over 10 million street vendors in Pakistan. “I hope such public interest and pro-poor legislation can draw on multi partisan support”, she said in her tweet.
