The meeting, chaired by PTI Senator Faisal Javed, is invested to discuss various media-related issues, including uncertainty about the future role of the PEMRA Electronic Media Agency in Pakistan.
However, the agenda was postponed to another meeting at the request of Senator Rubina Khalid, Khushbakhat Shujaat and Pir Sabir Shah, as only three members could attend the meeting.
Senator Faisal Javed agreed with the other senators as he was of the opinion that this was an important issue and should be discussed in the presence of more members at the next meeting.
During the briefing, the Federal Minister informed the Senate Committee that the government is planning to establish a new regulatory authority for all forms of media, the Pakistani Media Regulatory Authority (PMRA).
He said the government would take on board all interested parties and add that the new organization would be free from state interference.
He also claimed that he held meetings with other political leaders to reach a consensus on this issue.
