Islamabad, Mar.12 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister, Yousuf Raza Gilani is trying very hard to save his chair and to put an end to the ongoing political turmoil in the country to stem another bout of military rule.
Gilani, reportedly, is working on a reconciliation strategy with the PML-N that would include overturning the verdict of the Sharif brothers disqualification from contesting elections and reinstating Shabaz Sharif as chief minister of Punjab.
It could also include, most significantly, re-establishing the judiciary and Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry to the November 2007 position.
According to The News, the military, has backed Gilani for the reconciliation and ensure a strong platform for democratic institutions and leadership.
Gilani is hopeful that President Zardari and the Pakistan Peoples Party would support him given the fact that he is working for the survival of democracy in the country.
According to sources, Gilani is confident of not being thrown away from his chair as he feels that opposition members of the parliament would fall into his kitty in case of a dissection among his own party men. (ANI)
