ISLAMABAD: The ruling coalition has presented a proposal urging President Pervez Musharraf to secure vote of confidence in the parliament. The President would be formally asked to secure the confidence vote if the proposal was approved.
Sources said that the proposal was presented to remind Musharraf his promise of taking vote from the new parliament. It is pertinent to mention that the president had vowed on the occasion of holding presidential election to seek vote of confidence from the new parliament when the question was raised that the outgoing parliament had no power to elect a president.
The sources further said that consultation with the legal and constitutional experts in this connection is going on and all the coalition parties would be taken into confidence later on. However, the sources maintained that Musharraf would finally be asked to take vote of confidence.
While Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said that his party intends to run the country under democratic rule and resolve all political issue through dialogue with the coalition partners but would not compromise on the principles. Talking to media, he said PML-N does not want to destabilize the system and complicate the situation. He said PML (N) would go to extreme limit to resolve the contentious issue to save the system.
Responding a question on law minister’s statement regarding taking fresh oath by the deposed judges for their restoration, he termed it as immature. Chaudhry Nisra Ali said that his party stands for resolution of problems being faced by the people and would continue its efforts to resolve these problems on priority.-SANA
