ISLAMABAD - In the face of the technical and legal issues confronting the Implementation Commission on 18th Amendment in the devolution process of ministries and divisions the government is mulling introduction of 20th amendment in the Constitution. Sources in the coalition government informed The Nation that during the course of ministries and divisions devolution, following the abolition of Concurrent List from the Constitution, the government came across a number of technical and legal hurdles like in the case of HEC devolution. So, to overcome these hiccups the ruling coalition is contemplating to bring the 20th Amendment primarily to rectify these legal and constitutional lacunae. In this connection, negotiations with all the Parliamentary parties are in progress, the sources further confirmed. These sources said that though the Implementation Commission in exercise of its power under Article 270AA of the Constitution has established 'Capital Administration and Development Division to manage some of the autonomous bodies and departments at federal level, which were earlier part of the ministries and divisions devolved or being devolved. The sources further informed that over the past one week the key political parties including PML-N had a series of meetings on the issue of HEC and finally evolved consensus on its truncate future role and it would also be made part of the 20th amendment draft, which would be finalized after the completion of devolution process by June 30 this year. These sources said that a number of matters relating to the Ministry of Health, which would also be devolved by June 30, would be brought under the control of federal government for which legislation would be required. Though the government has the option of taking the contentious matters to the Council of Common Interests (CCI) to get approval of the provinces on these subjects but even then certain things would have to be constitutionally covered for which the 20th Amendment has become inevitable, a source in the Parliament informed The Nation. The sources said that the drugs registration and fixation of prices of drugs being produced by the multinationals was one such area, which could not be devolved and would remain with the federal government in some mechanism most probably in the form of some Health Directorate under the direct control of Cabinet Division.
