ISLAMABAD: On Friday, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari addressing the media here said there was only one umpire in Pakistan and that was the people.
“There is only one umpire in this country and that is the people. In a democracy and in Pakistan it is the will of the people which is followed not that of any third umpire.”
Commenting on the possibility of a presidential system and the roll back of the 18th Amendment, the PPP chairman reiterated that any such move would be resisted by his party.
“You cannot bring a presidential system through democratic means. PPP and other democratic forces of this country will reject this.”
The PPP chairman stated his party’s stance on the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), calling it a black law and an institution made by former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf for political engineering and vengeance.
“PPP thinks a new system is needed and there should be across the board accountability for all. There needs to be one system for everyone.”
