PML-N warns disqualification of Nawaz, Shahbaz will lead to chaos in PakJanuary 21st, 2009 - 2:25 pm ICT by ANI
Islamabad, Jan 21 (ANI): The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has warned against disqualification of its top leadership, saying that neither the people of the country nor the party will accept any controversial judgment handed in by the PCO judges.
Any controversial decision at this point of time would mean another judicial crisis and chaos in the country, the responsibility of which would lie on the Government, PML-N Central Secretary Information Ahsan Iqbal told reporters here.
Ahsan Iqbal said those who were not regarded by the people to be legitimate judges had no right to decide on the qualification of popular leaders.
Dawn quoted him as saying that the Judges who had validated General (retired) Pervez Musharrafs unconstitutional rule couldnt hear the case against people who had a record of opposing and rejecting the same.
Ahsan Iqbal said the PPP had made promises for repeal of the controversial 17th amendment, and should fulfill its promise by working together with the PML-N.
He said the bill to repeal the 17th amendment prepared by the PML-N was in line with the Charter of Democracy signed both by the PPP and the PML-N.
Answering a question, Iqbal dispelled the impression that the PML-N wanted a repeal of the 17th amendment, as it was hurdle in the way of Nawaz Sharif becoming Prime Minister for the third term, and pointed out that Sharif was not a Member of the National Assembly. (ANI)
