PML-J’s advice

September 03, 2003


LAHORE, Sept 2: PML (Jinnah) President Saeed Ahmed Khan Manais advised the ruling party and the opposition on Tuesday that instead of levelling allegations and counter-allegations they should sit together and hammer out a course of action to meet their respective constitutional obligations.

In a press statement, he said opposition wanted parliament’s supremacy, an objective Gen Musharraf, too, was not averse to. The real dispute, he said, was on distribution of powers, which could be settled on a give-and-take principle. Manais, who is also a former speaker of the Punjab Assembly, said assemblies had been in existence for the past nine months but so far they had failed to settle the dispute, creating despondency among the electorate. —Staff Reporter
