Incredible display of brazenness and incredible arrogance to think that public is be fooled by Zardari when he is wrecking the country for the sake of protecting some of his stolen wealth yet uses terms like 'saving democracy' and 'acting as per constitution'. Im confident he is ready for the second govt to go but both his love for wealth and his big ego will not allow him to do anything different.I think it will be terrible for the country.I hope the judges show restraint as we hopefully will see his back shortly

The President and the PM along with their high ranked officials are to lead with example,but to no surprise,the President shows total disrespect towards the constitution for one and lack of respect for the law.He could careless what happens to people who elected them.If you want to know the real truth,get the real information on how these people live,how much money they are giving themselves to live daily,its in the millions,and thats for each indivigual while people sleep on the streets,eat garbage and have no water to drink,no light,no job,no future,no education.Yet everyday,the government makes empty promises.So please,this is just a meeting at the presidency which won't cost as much as like the trips taken with a 100 tag alongs to borrow money wearing more expensive suits then the ones who will loan you the money.Ever look at the world leaders how they live and how ours do.There is alot more information which will make the hair on the back of your neck stand.Hold these ____________ accountable.Start with Zardari.

"PPP stalwarts get rid of Zardari and your troubles are over." Khalid, you meant Nadeem F. Paracha? No, wait till he comes with an angle to not only justify using President House but may also blame Imran Khan for causing the necessity of the meeting. PS; I already have access to the minutes of the meeting: To Vote on Zardari to leave the Presidency - Party voted Yes 48 to 2. Zardari's response "No thank you comrades; I am staying. "Bilawal seconded it by reiterating "that's how our party do it". Morning Newspapers printed a picture of a rejoiced Zardari surrounded by twice as rejoiced party stallworths.

The meeting called is to find the ways as how to rig votes. PTI and PML-N got be alert and do everything to protect Their votes and ciunterfeit votes by PPP who is very well experienced such moves. Election under Zardari can never be fair. What just one honest CEC can do. The reason PPP appointed EBRAHIM to reflect a better image knowingly what could this aged honest person can do and control inflow of bogus votes where officers in polling stations will be acting for rullers Who have kept them happy with fresh currency notes.

This feudal filibustering seems to be only way to keep the purging noose away as long as possible.

PPP stalwarts get rid of Zardari and your troubles are over.
Najam Nawaz SAqib Jul 17, 2012 02:26pm
All this drama is being played just to save the corruption of one person.
Abdul Rehman Halani Jul 17, 2012 01:25pm
Khalid, how PPP could get rid of Zardari, this party does not belong to peoples in true sense, but owned by Mr. Zardari now. And Yes, this party worth multi-billion dollars and why Zardari will leave this party. Abdul Reman Halani

Who are the stalwarts? Are they not made of the same metal?

Holding party meetings at the presidential palaces are abhorred in a democratic system. Besides, the President of Pakistan, as of any other civilized country of the world, must act as a fatherly figure, since adorning that chair means and understands that he is president of the entire country. He, by virtue of this post, shouldn't indulge in legal affairs, day to day governing arenas, and present himself in any ugly fashin or activity which might tarnish the image of the country.

Hasn't anything happened on the move to stop the Presidency being used for party meetings?
