Musharraf’s constitutional amendments to be removed: Ahsan

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) Secretary Information Ahsan Iqbal Monday said that all controversial amendments made to the Constitution by Pervez Musharraf would be scrapped. Talking to reporters here outside the Zardari House, Ahsan Iqbal said the coalition partners would do the needful together. Ahsan Iqbal, who is also Minister for Education, said the 1973 constitution would be restored in its original shape.

He said General Musharraf was responsible for all crises and the people had rejected his policies during the February 18 elections. The PML-N leader said that Pakistani currency gained strength and bullish trend was observed in the stock markets of the country soon after Musharraf’s resignation. Now the country’s economy would grow, he said.

Ahsan Iqbal said that PML-N does not want to give safe exit to a person who two times violated the constitution, sacked the judges and put curbs on media, but a decision would be taken by coalition partners collectively. PML-N parliamentary leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said the credit for Musharraf’s resignation goes to all political parties, civil society and lawyers.

He said restoration of the sacked judges is the top priority of the coalition government. “First we would restore the deposed judges and then decide about who is going to be the next head of state.” To a question, Nisar Ali Khan said that Musharraf must be brought to the court of justice because it was the demand of the people as he had violated the Constitution and sacked the judges.-SANA
