Panama leaks committee not finalized: Ayaz Sadiq


LAHORE: National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq has said that names for the committee to establish the Terms of Reference (ToRs) have not been finalized yet.


He was speaking to media outside the house of former Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani where he had arrived to congratulate him over the release of his son from captivity after three years.

He said that Gilani was a senior politician and he sought advice to run the affairs of the assembly.

Sadiq said that names for the committee to establish the ToRs had not been finalized. He hopes to receive the name tomorrow by members of the National Assembly and the Senate.

He expressed hope that the committee would not finalized in the next few days. He said that he was just a facilitator and would not be a part of it.

Sadiq appeared clueless whether there will be any political meetings of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in London or whether the visit was just for medical purposes.

He also refused to say whether the visit was on personal expenses and said that Information Minister Parvez Rasheed was more suited to answer it.
