JI demands half KP seats if joins hand: Fazl


Jamat-e-Islami has demanded fifty percent seats of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in case of joining hands, said JUI-F chief Maulana Fazl-ur Rehman on Thursday.
Addressing a news conference Maulana said that if all institutes will work within their limits then no clash would take place.
He reminded that all parties are able to withstand elections held by a dictator like Musharraf.
“As such I don’t (even) see, if Zardari being just a persona can try to coerce elections in his favor”.
He foresaw general elections in 2012, but however, “we ought to realise the current volatile state of affairs, as despite 4-year rule , the rulers have lost their grip on State affairs; hence any early elections would be equivalent of being constitutional, while any other elections (even after fixed tenure) could become un-constitutional”, he declared.
He also announced that a joint strategy by opposition, before elections was being mulled over, and a message to Nawaz Sharif had also been conveyed.
Expressing his approval of such recommendations by all political parties like transparent arrangements of voters’ list, independent Election Commission, etc, he also stressed on deliberating about issues like caretaker government and other important factors.
“It would be better if politicians instead of pressure by Army or Judiciary make a consensus over these matters” he stressed.
Replying to a question regarding future of PTI, he said that all should monitor the progress of political nomads, who had enjoyed the fruits of almost every government since last 63 years.
