PM’s video link adress con­sti­tu­tional

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

For­mer prime min­is­ter Syed Yusuf Raza Gi­lani said on Wed­nes­day chair­ing of spe­cial cab­i­net meet­ing by Prime Min­is­ter Muham­mad Nawaz Sharif through video link from Lon­don was con­sti­tu­tional. If for­mer Chief Jus­tice of Pak­istan Iftikhar Muham­mad Chaudhary could con­duct court hear­ing in the memo- gate scan­dal to record the state­ment of Man­soor Ejaz through video link then why could a sit­ting prime min­is­ter not ad­dress and chair the cab­i­net meet­ing through it, he ques­tioned. Gi­lani, how­ever, sug­gested that the Par­lia­ment should make con­sti­tu­tional amend­ments in that re­gard as it was the first time that a prime min­is­ter was hospi­talised be­fore the bud­get ses­sion. He was ad­dress­ing news­men af­ter the farewell func­tion for for­mer PPP pro­vin­cial pres­i­dents, gen­eral sec­re­taries, and mem­bers of ex­ec­u­tive pro­vin­cial coun­cils here at a ho­tel.— APP
