The government managed to pass three key laws related to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) in a joint sitting of parliament on Wednesday, which was affected by opposition protests.

Prime Minister Imran Khan also attended the meeting convened under the chairmanship of President Arif Ali and the Speaker of the National Assembly Asad Qaiser.

The three bills passed with three amendments were Islamabad Capital Territory Waqf Properties Bill, 2020, Anti Money Laundering (Second Amendment) Bill and others. The Anti-Terrorism Act (Amendment) Bill, 2020.

After that, the NA Speaker asked the MPs to stand up, and proceeded with the counting of votes. On the motion to introduce the bill, 200 voted in favor and 190 opposed.
The clause was read out in the bill by clause, which approved amendments to some clauses, while others were rejected by voice vote.
Opposition members have been vocal in their opposition to the bill.
Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Senator Raza Rabbani objected to the bill introduced by Awan as advisers to the Prime Minister, saying he did not have the authority to do so.
PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari tried to address the meeting, while Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that those who had proposed the amendment should be allowed to speak instead.
