Panama Case in Supreme Court: PML-N to go against the commission formation
The ruling party is not likely to reach a consensus with the PTI on the commission’s formation fearing “too many repercussions,” reliable sources in the ruling PML-N says.
“The formation of commission means all the respondents would have to appear before the inquiry panel. And any such appearance implies grilling, cross-examination and all that. This would be nothing less than a nightmare for us,” a senior PML-N leader said, while requesting not to be named.
The ruling party, he said, would push for the exclusion of the PM’s name in case the court decided to set up a commission even if consensus between both the sides was not reached.
“Imagine if the PM had to appear before the commission and to face tough questions, harsh arguments and serious allegations. It would be a very grim scenario – something we would never want to have.
