Balochistan Needs an Effective RTI Law

Quetta: Coalition on Right to Information (CRTI) urges the Balochistan government to replace freedom of information Act 2005 with an effective and robust right to information law.
Out of four provinces, Balochistan has the weakest right to information law in Pakistan.
“Like provincial governments of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab and Sindh, federal government repealed freedom of information Act 2002 and replaced it with progressive Right of Access to Information Act 2017 last month,” CRTI Partners said while holding a press conference at Quetta Press Club.
They added that Government of Balochistan should also follow suit and start legislation of an effective right to information law to bring transparency and promote public participation in the affairs of Balochistan government.
