Bilawal for self governance in tribal areas

Islamabad May 29, 2016; Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that the involvement of the people of tribal areas in self governance was critical to ending militancy and for mainstreaming the tribal areas. In the final analysis tribesmen with stakes in their governance structures will be a stronger force against aliens and militants in their midst than any other force.

He said this in a meeting with convener PPP FATA Chapter former MNA Akhunzada Chattan in Zardari House Islamabad Sunday to review Party issues in the tribal areas and mobilization of the people of tribal areas.

Bilawal said that after the extension of the Political Parties Order to the tribal areas it was incumbent upon the PPP to vigorously reach out to the people with political messaging. The political message of the PPP to the tribal people is that Party is committed to ensure their empowerment through instruments of self governance. Our message is that we will strive for their basic rights as are available under the Constitution to the people of other parts of the country, he said.

Bilawal said that previously only one narrative dominated the political-religious discourse in the tribal areas which hampered social and political development. The Political Parties Order was extended to the tribal areas by the previous PPP government to enable them benefit from alternate political narratives and freely make their political choices.

Akhunzada Chattan briefed the chairman PPP on the overall party situation in the tribal areas and the progress made in the re-organization process.

Former President Zardari contradicts media reports of understanding with Prime Minister over Panama leaks

Islamabad May 29, 2016: Former President Asif Ali Zardari has had no meeting with Moulana Fazal ur Rehman in London recently and the assertion in a section of the media that Mr. Asif Zardari has reached some understanding on the issue of Panama leaks with the Prime Minister is untrue, baseless and motivated.

This was stated by the former President today when his attention was drawn to a report on private TV channel implying that in the spirit of reconciliation Mr. Zardari had arrived at some understanding the Prime Minister on the issue.

Mr. Zardari not only contradicted these reports but also stated categorically that the Party had already decided to pursue the Panama leaks issue to its logical conclusion. A parliamentary committee has already been set up which is engaged in drawing up the Terms of Reference for investigations and how to proceed in the matter and there is no question of ignoring it, he said.

The former President said that the Party has arrived at a well considered stance on the issue after due deliberations not only within the Party but also with all political parties.

Media reports calculated to give any impression that he (Mr Zardari) may have a different stance on the issue are untrue and baseless and seem motivated to create confusion, he said.

PPP HR Cell rejects CII proposed law on women

Karachi. 28.5.2016: The PPP Human Rights Cell has rejected the so-called ‘Women protection Bill’ proposed by the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) stating that it was not the mandate of the Council to make or to propose any laws unless a legislature formally asks for advice.
“It is the sole prerogative of the parliament to consider, propose, amend or repeal laws of the country. The CII is mandated only to propose nonbinding recommendations,” said the PPP Human Rights Coordinator Dr Nafisa Shah.
“Under Article 229 of the Constitution, legislative bodies can seek advice from the CII only if two-third members of the legislatures vote for it. In the other case, only a Governor of a province or the President can seek advice, added the PPP HR coordinator.
Neither of this has happened, therefore, Council of Islamic Ideology’s proposal for a law has no legal standing,” she argued, adding that any provincial government’s law department writing to the CII for advice is not in order unless it follows the constitutional procedure.
Dr Shah also dismissed the law proposed by the CII saying: “Instead of its preoccupation with wife beatings and child marriages, it would be more constructive for the society if the Council focused on recommendations that promote the true spirit of Islam as a modern progressive religion calling for equal rights for all.
She urged upon the CII for joining the world in condemning all forms of violence against women, including wife battering ‘light’ or ‘hard’.”
