Now two constitutions will not work at all in Pakistan: Bilawal Bhutto

Chairman of Pakistan People’s Party and Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that now two constitutions will not work in Pakistan at all, a parliamentary committee should be formed and we should decide how many judges will sit.

Bilawal Bhutto speaking in the National Assembly session said that there are two Pakistans, the first one said that the member’s vote will not be counted without the consent of the party leader, then the second one said that the member’s vote will be counted.

He said that it is our responsibility to defend the role of the Parliament, it is not their job to amend the constitution, until we solve this problem, Pakistan will not become a democratic country. Bilawal said that just as the court said the government means the cabinet, in the same way the Supreme Court is not only the Chief Justice but the entire court, whose job is to implement justice-based decisions and laws.

The Federal Foreign Minister demanded that ‘now is the time to form a parliamentary committee for judicial reforms and we should decide how many judges will sit in the bench.

Bilawal Bhutto said that it is possible to solve the democratic economic crisis of four years in three months. Like the previous government, we will not lie. If the constitution is violated, this house should act against it, if we cannot do this, lock this assembly.

He said that the time has come for us to legislate to defend the constitution, a parliamentary committee for judicial reforms should be formed today, it took us 30 years to make the 1973 constitution, when the time came to break this constitution, all the institutions were involved, then we had to struggle for thirty years for the restoration of the constitution, Shaheed Benazir Bhutto got martyrdom for the restoration of the same constitution, we restored the constitution through the eighteenth amendment in our government, after this historic success, after that He withdrew the President’s dictatorial powers and signed the Democracy Charter, all these steps were for the freedom of the Supreme Court, the people and the media.

The foreign minister said that ‘Unfortunately, a group was created to run a controlled democracy, the power of Article 58/2B of the Constitution has now gone to the court, while earlier this power was with the President, every day the people. The mandate and the elected house continued to be attacked, Iftikhar Chaudhry came into someone’s hands and gave such decisions which were not in accordance with the constitution and law.

Bilawal said that for the first time we have completed our term and transferred power, decisions on the price of samosas and potatoes used to be made in courtroom number one. The court was to be formed and the powers of the judges were to be determined, this House and the Prime Minister were threatened to give the powers to the judges or the Eighteenth Amendment would be destroyed. The amendment was passed, the then opposition was happy with it.

The foreign minister said that ‘once again we saw that decisions of the constitution were being made elsewhere, the role of the court was not right in this period. The prime minister with a two-thirds majority was sent home, the senators of that prime minister were declared free.

Bilawal Bhutto said that ‘is it possible that the sins of 70 years can be forgiven by the neutrality of one night, now is the time to legislate to defend the constitution’.

He further said that ‘Supreme Court gave a decision, it was about the ruling of the Deputy Speaker and the Chief Minister of Punjab, all the political parties were standing on this issue, we were not threatening anyone by XY. They were demanding a court, during the time of no confidence in the previous government, the ruling of the deputy speaker came, even then my demand was for a full court.
