PPP hails Supreme Court verdict in the Presidential reference

Islamabad March 01, 2021: Pakistan People’s Party has welcomed the verdict on Monday morning of the Supreme Court in the Presidential reference seeking opinion of the apex Court on the question of voting in senate election.

In a statement Secretary General of the Party Farhatullah Babar hailed the verdict as “triumph of law, justice and Constitutionalism”. It is also a vindication of the position taken by the Pakistan People’s Party in the Supreme Court on the issue, he said.

The PPP deplored that the PTI government abused the office of the President into filing the Presidential reference and then in making the President’s office also issue an ordinance even before the verdict was pronounced and the Court was already seized of the matter. Never before legislation had been sought to be done through what has come to be known as ‘anticipatory ordinance’, he said.

Farhatullah Babar said that it was no less deplorable that the President also signed on the dotted line of the advice sent to him in filing reference under the Constitution before the Supreme Court as well as in issuing an ‘anticipatory ordinance’ without applying his mind and without asking any questions from the government. The office of the President of Pakistan is and ought to be much more than merely an ordinance making workshop he said. .

Spokesmen of puppet government are talking gibberish

Islamabad, 1 March 2021: Pakistan Peoples Party Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar has said that the government has been miserably defeated before the Senate elections as the Supreme Court has given its opinion that the Senate elections will be held according to the constitution that is by the secret ballot.

Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khohar in a statement has said that the government wanted to avoid the Senate elections but failed. It is so ridiculous that the government spokesmen are declaring this opinion as their victory. The Supreme Court has responded in negative about the question by the government. These spokesmen have no answer to the questions like has the Supreme Court asked to hold the Senate elections by show of hands as the government wanted. They also do not have the answer to the question that is the Presidential order effective after the Supreme Court’s opinion.

Senator Khokhar said that 3 March is the day of victory of Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani and defeat of the candidate of the selected Prime Minister. This puppet government will be defeated in the Senate election similar to the defeats in Bye-elections, Senator Khokhar concluded.

Former Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani and Farhatullah Babar were accompanied Chairman PPP.

Talking to media after the meeting Chairman Bilawal said that the PPP delegation visited President PDM to discuss political issues. Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani is the PDM candidate from Islamabad and Farhatullah Babar is the PDM candidate for a technocrat seat from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The PDM has challenged the government on every front. We defeated the government in all four provinces in Pakistan in the recently held bye-elections. Government rigged elections in Kurram agency and Daska bye-elections. Daska election results have been declared null and void. Pakistani people have rejected this selected government.

Responding to questions, the Chairman PPP said that we hope that our candidates will Insha-Allah win the senate seats and then we will send this selected government and Prime Minister packing and after that we will form a people’s government to work for their interests. He said that ANP is an important party in the PDM and has been supporting the collective cause. He said that yesterday in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa the entire opposition was on one page against this selected government and for this he thanked all the parties including Jamaat-e-Islami.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that we think that PML-N has taken its seats in Punjab and those will be very vital in Chairman Senate’s elections. As far as MQM is concerned, it is a government ally and has representation from Karachi but the federal government has done nothing for Karachi. We think that if they support the PDM then their voice for their rights will be louder. Replying to a question about Supreme Court verdict’s regarding the presidential in connection to the open ballot, Chairman PPP said that we hope that the Supreme Court will decide according to the constitution and law. We are prepared for both open and secret ballots. We are speaking to government and its allies as well and we hope that the members will support the democratic candidate against PTIMF candidate.

Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari’s press conference in Lahore

Islamabad, Lahore, Karachi, 24 February 2021: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari addressing a press conference in Lahore on Wednesday said that Pakistan Democratic Movement has short term and long term goals. The short term goal is to send this selected and puppet government packing which has added to people’s woes and the long term goal is to strengthen democracy.

Chairman Bilawal said that all the parties in PDM are jointly giving this incapable government a tough time. The responsibility of the opposition is to fight for the rights of the people. Now we have exposed this selected and incapable government not only before the people of Pakistan but also before the entire world. This government tried to carryout massive rigging in bye-election in Daska but was exposed.

Chairman PPP thanked PML-N and JUI leadership for accepting PPP candidate Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani as the candidate of PDM for the Senate seat from Islamabad. We all jointly worked for the supremacy of the parliament and succeeded and now the government has also started talking to their own members who they were ignoring for the last 30 months. We know that we are fighting this battle with less numbers of members but we are fighting this battle of democracy. We are giving a tough time to the government and will continue to do so. After the election of Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani the chapter of the restoration of democracy will begin. We are thankful to all parties of the opposition and all the members for supporting PDM’s joint candidate for the Senate elections being held on 3 March. The march will also begin by the end of the month of March. It is time to say that just one more push is needed for the wall to fall, he said.

Responding to questions by the journalists Chairman Bilawal said that all the parties in PDM are united and will remain united after the Senate elections. We are not in no-confidence phase yet and we are in Senate elections phase. We are contesting Senate elections on the principles of democracy. Yousuf Raza Gillani has been a prime minister and he used to deal with treasury and opposition benches equally. He used to respect every parliamentarian. It proves that we solve issues in the parliament. Now members have a democratic option in Yousuf Raza Gillani or they have a technocrat. We have always respected parliament and want to change this government through democratic means. We have to proceed forward through the democratic path and help the country emerge from the crises.

Responding a question about establishment, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the PPP is trying for the last three generations for every institution to work within their domain according to the constitution. He said that if the establishment is neutral then we should welcome this. Replying to a question he said that we want to implement every clause of the Charter of Democracy but do not want any clause of CoD to be implemented by illegal or unconstitutional means. This government did not make any effort to amend the constitution instead wants to use institutions’ shoulders. If the Election Commission of Pakistan and the higher courts will take decisions according to constitution then that will be the implementation of CoD.

Chairman PPP said that a group of journalists were forcing us not to take part in bye-elections and for us to resign; I have made it clear that they should not try to teach us politics because we do not teach them journalism. Our stance is that we will confront this government in the political field according to constitution. Pakistan is in an economic mess and facing historical and unprecedented poverty and price-hike. This is the issue of the common man and can only be solved through a free parliament. Every Pakistani is bearing the burden of the incapable government. This government does not believe in democracy and wants an open ballot just for their interests. Why had they not objected the secret ballot in the election of Senate chairman, Bilawal asked.

Earlier, a meeting of members of national and Punjab assemblies was held chaired by the Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. The meeting was held at the residence of president PPP south Punjab, Makhdoom Ahmed Mehmood. The meeting discussed upcoming Senate elections and movement against government. This meeting was attended by Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani, Makhdoom Ahmed Mehmood, Qamar Zaman Kaira, Syed Hassan Murtaza, Makhdoom Usman Mehmood, Ali Haider Gillani, Raees Nabeel, Ghazanfar Langah, Syed Mustafa Mehmood, Makhdoom Syed Murtaza Mehmood, Mehar Irshad Ahmed Sial, Malik Raza Rabbani Khar, Natasha Dolatana, Nawabzada Iftikar, Naveed Amir Jeewa, Hina Rabbani Khar, Mumtaz Chang, Shazia Abid, Azizur Rehman Chan and others.
