PPP considers bringing resolution in NA to endorse presidential immunity

Lahore , Sat, 28 Apr 2012 ANI

Lahore, Apr 28 (ANI): Experts in Pakistan have suggested to the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) that it should bring a resolution of endorsement regarding the president's immunity under the constitution and the Vienna Convention in parliament, in order to avoid confrontation with the Supreme Court over the president's immunity in future.

PPP sources said that even though a good number of PPP lawmakers agreed with the suggestion, party heads are yet to take a decision in this regard. PPP leaders, however, said they will take their allies- the Awami National Party (ANP), the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q)- into confidence within the next two days.

According to The Dawn, PPP sources said the Supreme Court had made it clear to the government several times during the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) case and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani's contempt of court case, that the government should seek President Asif Ali Zardari's immunity from the court while it was clearly mentioned in the constitution.

But, the PPP had decided in principle that it would not go in the court with the demand of immunity when parliament was supreme body of country and the constitution was clear on the issue. (ANI)
