Unconstitutional steps not to be tolerated, says Gilani

Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani on Sunday said that unconstitutional steps of the opposition against the elected government of the Pakistan People’s Party would not be tolerated, and stressed that reconciliatory policy should not be construed as weakness.
“The opposition may bring no-confidence move against me (the prime minister) or an impeachment motion against the president if it has developed certain disliking against both,” he said while addressing a public meeting after inaugurating development projects at Phalia.
Prime Minister Gilani said that PPP stood firm to its manifesto and the Charter of Democracy (CoD) as per the vision and philosophy of the the late Benazir Bhutto, adding that PML-N President Nawaz Sharif, one of the signatories of the CoD, had forgotten it.
He said that PPP would not retreat from serving public and strengthening democracy and democratic institutions. The premier announced to launch country-wide ‘Carvan-e-Tameer’ from Phalia, Mandi Bahauddin, adding that he would go from Karachi to Khyber to launch development projects.
Gilani said that the PPP government would fulfill all the promises of the late Benazir Bhutto made with the people, adding that the inauguration of energy projects in the area was part of the PPP vision to provide facilities to the masses at their door step. He said PPP would face all challenges with the power of the masses rather than the government machinery.
He said the opposition should wait for the next general elections in 2013 instead of resorting to unconstitutional methods, adding that PML-N was worried about PPP’s expected success in March 2012 Senate elections.

    The Prime Minister is right. If any Opposition party wants to oust President and Prime Minister, the Constitution clearly spells out procedures. The Opposition accepts they do not have numbers. In which case, the only option is to wait till next General Elections due to be held in 2013. Opposition must behave responsibly without affecting government's ability to deliver.
    PPP & PML-N are both signatories to Charter of Democracy. Both parties should nominate their representatives for live public debate on media to determine how much of it has been implemented at Federal & Punjab levels. This will help clarify exact situation.
