Islamabad :In the midst of the on going war between the national institutions, the slot of Chairman Senate has emerged out of imperative nature as Nawaz Sharif has decided to win the position by hook or crook just to get illegal amendments in his favor from the parliament.
Nawaz Sharif would go to the least end as he would use every available resource for the chairmanship of Senate for his party. The purpose of constitutional package from PML(N) is to get rid of incumbent judges of Supreme Court so that the verdicts in the corruption cases could be got from the weak judges before 31 March .
It is learnt that getting the chairmanship of Senate has become the matter of life and death for PML(N) as former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has given the task to Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, newly elected Acting President of PML(N) Shahbaz Sharif ,Speaker National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq, Khawaja Saad Rafiq, Pervez Rashid and Amir Muqam to ensure the winning of PML(N)’s candidate for the postiton of Chairman Senate.
The sources privy to development told Online that four days ago, an important meeting of PML(N) was held at Raiwind in which e very option was discussed for getting the position of Chairman Senate. During the meeting Nawaz Sharif cleared the participants that every effort would be ruined without winning the polls of Chairman as the punishment of Nawaz Sharif from Accountability Courts is very near and after that the onluy way to save the ski n of Nawaz Sharif is to bring constitutional amendment form the parliament. But if PML(N) would fail to win the seat of Chairman Senate then the job of amendment would be much difficult.
For the purpose a complete package would be tabled under which the retirement age of judges would be reduced to 58 years , whereas the articles 62 and 63 would be abolished from the constitution. Similarly the prerogative of judges regarding sue motto and basic rights under article 184 would be finished.
The articles 168 and 169 would also be amended to bring the behavior and performance of judges under debate in the parliament and right of disqualifying a person would be given to only Election Commission of Pakistan. The most important amendment would be that the Supreme Court could not issue instructions to any other department directly rather it could pass on its orders to Ministry of Law only. And above all the law passed by the parliament could not be challenged in the court .
The new amendment also suggested that the privilege of describing the law would be with the parliament . In the package an important clause would be included that, the Speaker National Assembly and Chairman Senate would be the members of the Supreme Judicial Council along with the Chief Justices of Supreme Court and High Courts.
Supreme judicial council should be considered as final court in case of any ambiguity in constitutional matters.
The credible sources privy to secret meeting informed that some public demanded amendments would also be included in upcoming package, so that people can be attracted for approval of package.
Proposed constitutional amendment package allegedly a fraud with public included that subordinate courts should be bound to decide cases within 30 days.
