Islamabad, Aug 20 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said on Wednesday that no one should have any doubts about restoration of judges, and assured of their reinstatement in a week.

Therefore, Pakistan Peoples Party and Pakistan Muslim League-N tasked ANP and JUI to prepare recommendations in this regard and for this they were allowed 72 hours.
According to sources the Prime Minister said this while speaking to PML-Q parliamentarians.
Gilani said that there is no conflict between the coalition partners on the judges issue. He also said that the 17th amendment will be abolished after the restoration of the judges.
Talking to a delegation of Senators at the Prime Minister House, Gilani called for striking a balance of power among the various pillars of the state in line with the Constitution of 1973.
He stressed on the importance of an independent Election Commission and said that Parliament committees should be strengthened for the purpose of accountability.
