Talk­ing to jour­nal­ists af­ter fu­neral prayer of Ghu­lam Mo­hiyud­din, fa­ther of fed­eral sec­re­tary Ejaz Chaud­hary, Gi­lani said that Mushar­raf’s trial from Oc­to­ber 12, 1999 would dis­close many se­crets and facts.

To a ques­tion about mid- term polls, he said that Pak­istan Peo­ple’s Party was a demo­cratic party, adding that the coun­try could not af­ford midterm polls at this crit­i­cal junc­ture.

To another query about re­view ap­peal against his dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion, he said that he had filed re­view pe­ti­tion when Iftikhar Muham­mad Chaud­hary was chief jus­tice, adding that he was wait­ing re­sult of the pe­ti­tion.
