The Financial Daily - - FRONT PAGE -

ISLAMABAD: Leader of the Op­po­si­tion in the Na­tional Assem­bly Syed Khur­sheed Ah­mad Shah while re­it­er­at­ing full sup­port to supremacy of the Par­lia­ment, Con­sti­tu­tion and democ­racy on Fri­day urged the govern­ment not to bow to the il­le­gal de­mands of Pak­istan Tehreek-i-In­saf (PTI) and Pak­istan Awami Tehreek (PAT) and not to com­pro­mise on democ­racy and the con­sti­tu­tion.

Speak­ing in the Na­tional Assem­bly, he said that Pak­istan Peo­ple's Party (PPP) and other demo­cratic forces have ren­dered supreme sac­ri­fices for strength­en­ing democ­racy in the coun­try and would not al­low any­one to de­rail the sys­tem.

"Our Sha­heed lead­ers Mo­htarma Be­nazir Bhutto and Zul­fikar Ali Bhutto sac­ri­ficed their lives for cause of democ­racy and we will never com­pro­mise on it," he as­serted.

Shah said that all po­lit­i­cal par­ties and demo­cratic forces were firmly stand­ing with the govern­ment for pro­tec­tion of democ­racy, supremacy of the par­lia­ment and the con­sti­tu­tion for the first time in the coun­try's his­tory.
