18th Amendment restored true spirit of constitution: Bilawal

PPP chairman says his party is actively working for full implementation of amended law

Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari Tuesday said that the party’s previous government had achieved a historic target with the passage of the 18th Constitutional Amendment under the leadership of former president Asif Ali Zardari.

According to a statement issued by PPP’s media cell on the occasion of the 12th anniversary of the passage of the 18th Constitutional Amendment, Bilawal commented that the 18th Constitutional Amendment had restored the true spirit of the unanimously approved 1973 Constitution.

The PPP chairman said that ex-president Asif Ali Zardari had relieved him of his entire executive powers in favour of the parliament through the 18th Constitutional Amendment.

Subsequent to the passage of the 18th constitutional amendment, the provinces became autonomous to freely take care of their constitutional obligations to serve the people, he added.

He pointed out that it was the 18th Constitutional Amendment with which Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was given its identity as per the long-standing aspirations of the people of the province.

Bilawal said that it is the beauty and power of the 18th Constitutional Amendment that now nobody may twist the Constitution to use it for personal gains. He said that the people of Pakistan want strict observance of the Constitution and respect for democracy in the country.

The PPP chairman added, “The typical mindset doesn’t respect the Constitution. This mindset wants Pakistan to remain in chaos, so that a handful of nefarious brains may continue to pursue their interests during the never-ending chaos.” He said that the PPP is actively working for full implementation of the 18th Constitutional Amendment and assured that the people will celebrate their victory in the end.

Meanwhile, the party sources confirmed media reports that Bilawal was likely to fly to London to meet Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz supremo Nawaz Sharif to discuss some political issues which Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif could not handle.

The PPP chairman during his visit to London would discuss important issues relating to sensitive political matters — including the inclusion of Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) MNA Mohsin Dawar in the federal cabinet and some other issues — which Shehbaz refused to discuss with PPP leadership without the consent of his elder brother. “Bilawal following his return could become a part of the cabinet as foreign minister of Pakistan,” sources added.
