'Two words' holding judicial commission back, Dar says

Nov 30, -0001

ISLAMABAD: Finance Minister Ishaq Dar says if Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) shows flexibility the deadlock on the constitution of a judicial commission to probe the alleged vote fraud in May 11, 2013 polls can break in just thirty minutes, Samaa reported.

“PTI has itself stalemated the matter only because of the use of just ‘two words’ in the draft ordinance under which the commission will be formed,” the minister told newsmen here on Saturdy.

The resolution of the issue only begged some rationality from Imran Khan, he said while urging the cricketer-turned politician chairman of Pakistan’s justice party to ease his stance in the broader interest of the country.

“An email has been duly sent to and received from the PTI in response to the political party’s letter written to the government for the same,” Dar said replying to a question.

The government could not be more serious in launching a fact-finding judicial body as requested by the PTI, the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) minister said, adding but it was time for the PTI lawmakers to resume legislative activities.

Winding up his statement, Dar even went as far as saying the government was ready to re-draft the ordinance if it helped.
