ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has initiated the process of restructuring of Election Commission of Pakistan by sending three names of retired judges of high courts from each province so that one name each from all the four provinces would be finalised to be made ECP member. The officials in the Prime Minister Secretariat did not disclose the names of the 12 retired judges of high courts, three from each province, but they confirmed that a list of 12 retired judges of high courts was dispatched to the Leader of Opposition in the National Assembly and now it was up to him to agree with the recommendations of the Prime Minister or have his own preference order in the names forwarded to him. The spokesman of the Prime Minister Secretariat said that list was dispatched to the Leader of Opposition under Article 218-2/b and after getting the views of the Leader of Opposition on the subject, the same would be sent to 12-member Parliamentary Committee having equal number of treasury and opposition members for final approval. The committee after giving its final nod would dispatch the names for final notification to the President of Pakistan. The constitutional expert commenting on the situation said that under Article 213 of the Constitution it was not binding on the Leader of the Opposition to accept the list of the candidates forwarded to him for appointment as provincial members of the Election Commission of Pakistan and he could give his own list of candidates and preference to the 12-member Parliamentary Committee to have final word on his and Prime Ministers lists of candidates. It is pertinent to mention here that composition of 12-member parliamentary committee had changed after the Q-League became part of the coalition government and Leader of Opposition in the National Assembly Ch Nisar Ali Khan had written letter to Speaker National Assembly to re-notify the committee members.
