ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani on Saturday said he does not see any clash of state institutions if all of them work within the ambit of Constitution and do not go beyond.
“All institutions should do their work within the ambit of Constitution. I do not see any clash, if the institutions do not go beyond (the Constitution),”Gilani said in an interview with PTV News telecast on Saturday night.
“There is an evolution going on. Be it judiciary, media, parliament or others, the institutions are in the process of evolution and are strengthening. We cannot criticize anyone, because it is their right.
If anyone does something to strengthen their institution, they have the right, they should do it, but it should be within the ambit of Constitution”, the Prime Minister responded when asked if the 18th Amendment has stopped the path of unjust intervention from any quarter.
He said after the February 18, 2008 elections, the political parties showed maturity and coalition governments were formed in the center as well as provinces through political reconciliation.
The Prime Minister referring to the resignation of former President General Pervez Musharraf said it was the dialogue which led to the resignation of a President (Musharraf). “It never happened in the history of Pakistan,” he remarked.
The Prime Minister said it was said that parliament is a rubber stamp. “Now I want to question, is it a rubber stamp”, he remarked.
