Pakistan should not be so weak that 10 - 15 MNAs can derail the entire system: SC
While hearing presidential reference, Supreme Court Justice Ijazul Ahsan has remarked that if some member disagrees with his party’s policy, then he will be de-seated adding that it’s better for the member to resign than defection. The judge said that the dissident member should come back to assembly after seeking new mandate from public.
Chief Justice link of Supreme Court of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial remarked that Article 63-A saves the system of a political party adding that there was also possibility that the dissident member could bring his party leader round and got his agreement.
While disagreeing with the CJP’s view, lawyer Mustafa Ramday said that unfortunately our political parties did not have such democratic approach.
He wondered if a lot of just 10-15 members could derail the whole system underlining that we should not be so weakened.
Earlier Chief Justice link of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial expressed his vexation over the plea filed by the PML-N lawyer seeking adjournment of the presidential reference proceedings,
