Supreme Court validates PPP’s stance on 1990 election:Kaira

Lahore: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Qamar Zaman Kaira has said Supreme Court’s verdict in Asghar Khan case has validated and vindicated that elections were rigged in 1990.

He said Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) had always raised voice against certain wrongdoing and malpractices in the past.

Talking to a private television channel, he said the PPP was in favour of conducting a neutral investigation by Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) against people who were involved in this undemocratic and unconstitutional act.

He said no institution or individual was above the law and investigation would be innitiated irrespective of the political status or affiliation.

To a question, he expressed the optimism that an independent Election Commission would ensure transparent and fair general elections in the country.

The Information Minister reiterated that the PPP believed in the politics of reconciliation as the country cannot afford political confrontation.

He said concerted and consistent efforts were needed to face the challenges being faced by the country.

Answering to a question, he said operation in Waziristan had nothing to do with the upcoming general elections which would be held in time.

To another question, Kaira said the government always respected the courts’ verdicts and strived for harmonious relations among the state institutions.
