`King’s Party’ decides to counter anti-Musharraf campaignJune 1st, 2008 - 8:38 pm ICT by admin
Lahore, June 1 (ANI): The Pakistan Muslim League-Quami, also known as the “King’s Party” has decided to blunt the ruling coalition’s attacks on President Pervez Musharraf.
According to the Dawn, it proposes to tell the people that the Pakistan People’s Party and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz are raising various issues to deflect attention from their inability to impeach Musharraf and reinstate the deposed judges.
The party has also announced that it will show its strength in the Senate, which is starting its session on June 4, to demonstrate that the ruling coalition does not have sufficient support in the upper house and, therefore, will not be able to get any constitutional amendment adopted.
Under the Constitution, a constitutional amendment can be passed only by a two-thirds majority in both houses of parliament.
A PML-Q office-bearer said the party would hold a series of press conferences in Lahore, Karachi, Quetta and Peshawar in a few days to defend the performance and policies of President Musharraf and highlight the failures of the parties in power.
The PML-Q thinks a movement for the reinstatement of deposed judges cannot bring down the prices or rid the country of shortages of power, flour and other items. (ANI)
