ISLAMABAD - The PPP-led coalition government came out with major political decisions after three days of marathon deliberations on Thursday, calling for impeachment of President Pervez Musharraf, restoration of deposed judges to pre November 3 position as well as repealing the 17th constitutional amendment. "We have good news for democracy," PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari said at a joint news conference with PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif and representatives of other ruling allies here at Zardari House. Zardari said the government would requisition the National Assembly in a few days to sit and begin the impeachment proceedings under the Article 47 of the constitution. Simultaneously, the provincial assemblies would convene to pass no trust resolutions against President Musharraf, he added. To a question about whether the decision of impeachment was a big step, Zardari said; "it is not a big step in present times. It might have been big in the past. But, in a democratic system, it is the right of the masses' representatives." Zardari retorted that the government has the required number, strength and political will to crown the move with success. Zardari said the issue of reinstatement of judges will be taken up after the impeachment process is over. "The reinstatement of judges will be as per the will of the Parliament," he added. Answering another question, Zardari and Mian Nawaz Sharif both ruled the possibility of President Musharraf preempting the move by using his power under Article 58-2 (b) to pack up the elected assemblies, saying Pakistan passed that time. Nawaz Sharif, while explaining the party's position about impeachment of President Musharraf, said that issues of impeachment and restoration of the judges were interlinked, therefore the PML-N has decided to support the PPP mooted move of impeachment. Answering another question on rejoining of his party to the federal cabinet, Nawaz Sharif said that PML-N would take a decision on this issue today after intra party consultations. In response to yet another question about the NRO, Zardari said he was not afraid of a political deal that was cut by the martyred party Chairperson Benazir Bhutto, adding he had spent eight years in jail and was not afraid of any thing then. In the question-answer session, Asif Ali Zardari, Mian Nawaz Sharif, Haji Adeel and other leaders expressed firm commitment to the cause of democracy and the people of Pakistan. Earlier, the coalition leaders issued a seven point joint communique read by PPP Co-Chairman Asif Zardari in which they had charged President Musharraf of weakening the federation, bringing politico-economic chaos and hatching conspiracies against democracy in connivance with the 'Kings Party'. "In view of the above and his failure to take a vote of confidence from the newly elected assemblies, the coalition leadership believes that it has become imperative to move for his impeachment under Article 47 against General Musharraf," Asif Zardari maintained. The coalition partners' resolved that democratic forces would work jointly for making a transition to genuine democracy. "In spite of his clear commitment that if his party was defeated in the election he would resign, he continues to cling on to the office of President," Zardari said while referring to President Musharraf's commitment. "Notwithstanding the constitutional position of his election in October 2007 from an outgoing Parliament, he made a clear-cut commitment through his attorney before the Supreme Court that he will get a vote of confidence from the newly elected Assembly, which he failed to do," he added. Agencies add: The government had summoned the National Assembly to sit on August 11 and could begin the process then, a senior coalition official said. "The president's options are either to issue an order dissolving the National Assembly or impose emergency rule, under which the government will be suspended and a new caretaker set-up would be announced," a source close to Presidential camp told AFP.
