 Presidency welcomes SC verdict
 Updated at: 2141 PST,  Friday, July 31, 2009
 ISLAMABAD: “The Supreme Court short order today declaring the November 3, 2007 actions of General Pervez Musharraf as unconstitutional is a triumph of the democratic principles, a stinging negation of dictatorship and is most welcome”.

The short verdict as has become known thus far declaring actions of November 3, 2007 as unconstitutional is what the PPP and President Asif Zardari has all along maintained against the dictatorship of General Musharraf, spokesperson to the President former Senator Farhatullah Babar said in a statement on Friday.

Farhatullah Babar recalled that soon after the November 3 declaration of emergency the former Prime Minister and Chairperson of the party Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto cut short her visit to Dubai and rushed to Pakistan to challenge the emergency and dictatorship even at the risk of her life.

The negation and rejection of dictatorship and its actions of November 3, 2007 today by the Supreme Court is a triumph of the principles for which the party fought and its Chairperson Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and countless workers laid down their lives, he said.

He further said that as details of the judgment are still awaited it is premature to comment on it in detail at this stage.
