19th June 2012, a historic day
for Pakistan when first time in history it’s elected Prime Minister was straight
away disqualified by Supreme Court of the country, prior Prime Minister was
disqualified by Supreme Court on 26th of April this year. On 26th of April Prime
Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani was not likely to leave his luxurious office but
this time including President Asif Ali Zardari all the PPP’s members welcome the
court verdict and Gilani was consulted to leave the Prime Minister Secretariat.
Any way this was the democratic step taken by PPP’s members to accept the court
verdict and act upon it. I personally appreciate. Now Gilani was out and
government has to choose new prime minister. So from the last couple of hours
meetings were arranged to put someone forward as new prime minister. Different
name had been considered but not yet finalized. As for as I think this is not
the proper time to select someone else as a Prime Minister, because Supreme
Court will also ask the newly elected Prime Minister to write a letter to
foreign courts regarding president Zardari’s assets. And it is qualified fact
that PPP government and their Prime Minister will never do that. Now on the spot
after analyzing the complete scenario I come to the conclusion that parliament
and all provincial assemblies should be dissolved any way and election
commission of Pakistan should announce the next general election as soon as it
Any way political parties traditionally react on this verdict. It was confirmed
by MQM sources that London is agree with Supreme Court verdict. Imran Khan and
some other PTI leaders hold the full credit with themselves because the petition
of this case was first of all submitted by PTI. Further PML N leader Nawaz
Sharif talked to media and commented that this was the real accountability, now
government should be suspended and new elections should be announced. So now if
we analyze, PTI is out of assemblies while MQM is on government benches but PML
N holds 92 seats in national assembly as opposition and the Punjab government.
My very tough question for PML N is why you don’t want to left the
offices???........ And why you don’t resign?......
If only PML N will resign from national and Punjab assembly then the federal
government will be automatically in gutter because it will not be able to
continue and it is also impossible for election commission to re-arrange
by-elections in whole of Punjab and 92 constituencies of national assembly only
for six to seven months. On the other side common people also don’t want this
government to continue because of bundles of issues.
In short I would prefer to say that new election is the only way to come out
from all the difficulties and to sustain the democratic system in Pakistan. May
be elections doesn’t go in favor of PPP and their coalition partners but it’s
the time to think only about Pakistan and its common people.
