Nisar condemns Fehmida’s ruling


Reacting over National Assembly Speaker Fehmida Mirza’s ruling of not sending disqualification reference against Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani to Election Commission of Pakistan, opposition leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said that the speaker misused her powers.
Speaking at a press conference here on Thursday, he said the speaker’s ruling was not a surprise for him. “Now she has also become part of lobby that has been ridiculing Supreme Court.”
He said the speaker’s move was to save only a single person. The opposition leader said that a seven-judge bench of the apex court had unanimously convicted PM Gilani.
Earlier, National Assembly speaker has decided not to send a reference to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) against the prime minister.
