Islamabad, Tue, 17 Jan 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Jan 17 (ANI): Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik has said that the nation had appreciated Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani's decision to personally appear before the Supreme Court, a step that according to him will help remove misunderstandings.


The government always respected the apex court and implemented its decisions, The Dawn quoted him, as saying.


Malik further said the opposition was using various tactics to snatch the winning majority away from the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) in the upcoming Senate elections.


The minister added that the parliament would complete its tenure and that elections would be held on time.


Pakistan's Supreme Court had issued a contempt notice to Gilani, and asked him to appear before it on January 19th to present his point on the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) issue.


Gilani is the second Prime Minister of Pakistan to be issued a contempt notice by the country's apex court.


Earlier, the Supreme Court had directed President Asif Ali Zardari, Gilani and Chairman of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Fasih Bokhari to submit their replies in the same issue.


The apex court further requested the authorities to present details on progress in the implementation of its verdict on the same issue.


The Pakistan Supreme Court had also warned Zardari and Gilani of disqualification for up to 10 years for defying the implementation of the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) verdict. (ANI)
