PPP plans to let Gilani continue as PM even if convicted of contempt

Lahore , Wed, 25 Apr 2012 ANI

Lahore, Apr 25 (ANI): The Pakistan People's Party (PPP) has held exhaustive discussions on the possible outcomes and ways to deal with each scenario emerging from the Supreme Court's decision to convict Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani for contempt of court.

According to sources, if convicted, Gilani may be given up to a six-month sentence, but may also be sentenced "till the rise of the court" - that is, no actual jail time, Gilani's legal team told the PPP leadership.

"Gilani will remain prime minister for at least five more months, come what may," sources told The Express Tribune.

Fawad Chaudhry told The Express Tribune that, constitutionally, the prime minister can be removed from his office in three ways: resignation, a vote of no confidence or if he no longer remains an MNA. If Gilani is convicted, he has right of appeal and, till the decision, the president may ask him to continue his office, he added.

The disqualification will be in the hands of the Speaker of the National Assembly.

According to sources, the PPP-led coalition would in all probability nominate Federal Minister for Petroleum Senator Dr Asim Hussain as prime minister as a last resort.

Sources said that waves of PPP workers would accompany the prime minister to the court on Thursday. Following a conviction, they said that PPP would organise public gatherings in south Punjab, Sindh, Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir where court's ruling would be condemned.(ANI)
