Islamabad, Feb 23 (ANI): PPP Vice-Chairman Makhdoom Amin Fahim, who is being tipped as the most likely candidate as Prime Minister, has said that the new Parliament would decide on President Pervez Musharraf.

Commenting on whether to impeach Musharraf or not, Fahim said: I think there’s no need at the moment but the Parliament is sovereign. Once we go to the Parliament, it will look at every issue.

We should not rock the boat at this time. We must have civil transition of power from the military to civilians, he added.

He said that if the responsibility of Prime Minister is given to him, he will work hard.’

Speaking on Pakistan’s future under his leadership Fahim said: I know very well problems Pakistan is facing today, but PPP is an organised party. We have experts and have knowledge. If the responsibility lies on me, I will work hard.

He also pointed out that the PPP is not in favour of terrorism anywhere in the world.

We will try to settle this issue through the parliament with support of people of Pakistan, he said. (ANI)
