Islamabad: Speaker of the National Assembly, Raja Pervez Ashraf, has said that politics should be left to politicians, the Supreme Court belongs to Parliament and Parliament belongs to the Supreme Court.
According to details, while addressing the Executive Council of the Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists, the Speaker of the National Assembly praised journalists and said that they have made efforts for the restoration of democracy in the country. Although journalists were harassed, he did not back down from his stance and stood with them for their rights.
Emphasizing the importance of Parliament, the Speaker of the National Assembly said that the dignity of Parliament must be maintained and it cannot be dictated to. Parliament is elected by the people and is not subject to complaint to the Supreme Court. Constitutional amendments can be made in Parliament.
Raja Pervez Ashraf said that rulers have been given permission to amend the Constitution and when rulers come, ‘sumoto’ notices are issued. Protection of the Constitution is essential and it cannot be changed at the whim of a simple majority.
The Speaker complained in his address that it was said that elections would be held in ninety days, but the Parliament was dissolved. Imran Khan says that the Assembly was dissolved on someone’s saying. What law allows the Assembly to be dissolved on someone’s saying? Where did the supremacy of Parliament go after the decision of the Supreme Court?
He said in unequivocal terms that politics should be left to politicians, the Supreme Court belongs to Parliament, and Parliament belongs to the Supreme Court.
