Opposition in Pakistan says Parliament to be made supreme

Islamabad, March 24 : The joint opposition in Pakistan has stressed on the need for parliamentary supremacy and representative governance in the country and promised to work for making administrative wing of the government subordinate to an elected parliament, Express Tribune reported on Thursday. In a joint statement issued on Pakistan Day, the PDM vowed to work together for the realisation of Pakistan’s historic dream, which guarantees the political, economic and social rights of the people of Pakistan. Linking this with the successful execution of the no-confidence motion against PM Imran Khan, the oppositions statement also illustrated the importance of March 23, when the Muslims of South Asia voiced their dream for an independent state, and they reiterated their commitment to make a “better Pakistan” following Prime Minister Imran’s ouster from power through the vote of no-confidence. The opposition parties said that they would make Pakistan into a country where only the people would have the right to elect or dismiss their representatives. They claimed that the people of Pakistan, were suffering from the worst inflation, unemployment and social insecurity due to the “failed policies and performance” of the PTI government, thus making it necessary to dismiss the ‘incompetent’ government of Imran Khan. They promised immediate and comprehensive relief policies for the poor, labourers, farmers and fixed income groups, while also pledging to strengthen the country’s security institutions along professional lines. Calling for the establishment of a “truly representative government” through free, fair and transparent elections, they called for implementing far-reaching economic reforms and economic development based on social justice in the country, while promising to free the country from the debt trap, rid it of poverty, inflation, unemployment, illiteracy and disease.
