Tanvir Ashraf Kaira, Secretary General PPP Central Punjab, has welcomed the decision of the Lahore High Court directing the Election Commission of Pakistan and the Government to hold local bodies’ elections in Cantonment areas on party basis as well because non-party elections are against the fundamental rights of the people. He said this in a statement issued from here today.
He recalled that the Lahore High Court on the petition filed by PPP in 2014 gave the judgment in favor of holding local bodies’ elections on party basis in the province of Punjab.
He regretted that the ruling Party was desperately pursuing to hold elections of local bodies on non-party basis due to its fear of losing the elections. Their fear is well placed because the government has failed to provide relief to the common man who is leading miserable life due to the back to back crisis of government’s making, he observed.
He said that the PML (N) leadership was also guilty of betraying the Charter of Democracy (COD) in which they committed that party politics would be promoted in the country to strengthen democracy and the democratic institutions. Non-party elections are negation of party politics, he maintained.
He regretted that the ruling party was following the precedent set by dictator Zia-ul-Haq who had played havoc with the collective destiny of the nation by ruining the ideological basis almost beyond redemption.
He said that the PPP had rectified the deformities incorporated in the constitution by dictators through the enactment of the 18th amendment in the constitution with consensus.
He said that the PPP stood vindicated that had been urging the government throughout to hold local bodies elections on party basis because the non-party local bodies election was the legacy of dictators and therefore should be abandoned for all times to come.

LAHORE: Pakistan Peoples Party is holding meetings with other political parties to look into the possibility of convening an All Parties Conference (APC) to deliberate on the conflict in Yemen and arrive at a consensus that would reflect the aspirations of the people and would be in the interest of the comity of Muslim countries, PPP Punjab president Manzoor Wattoo said on Monday.

He was speaking to Iranian Consul General  Hussain Bani Asadi who called on Wattoo at his Model Town residence on Monday. The two spoke for about an hour during which they discussed matters of mutual interest including the situation in Yemen.

Wattoo told reporters after the meeting that the PPP had a clear stance on the matter and advocated the necessity of seeking out a solution through negotiations. He said the government should leave no stone unturned in facilitating an amicable solution in Yemen.

He said Pakistan will not allow any country to hurt the territorial integrity of Saudi Arabia. He said the matter was non-negotiable and they would all defend Saudi Arabia regardless of how many sacrifices it entailed.

The Iranian consul general said Iran attached great importance to its neighbouring countries. He said Pakistan and Iran agreed on many matters of regional and international interest. He said the situation in Yemen was an entirely internal matter of the country. He said that Iran hoped that Pakistan would use its good offices to facilitate a settlement of the problem.
