ISLAMABAD - Although there is no visible shift in the stance of any of the coalition partners on the issue of judges' reinstatement, yet the misinterpretation of the Bhurban Declaration, by all and sundry, has made it so and now it seems as if the main signatories of this document are changing their position on the issue. The Bhurban Declaration, signed mainly by PML-N and PPP, is mum over the modus operandi for the judges' restoration and it simply recommends passage of a resolution seeking restoration of the judges by the Parliament. There is no mention in the one-page declaration whether the judges would be restored through an executive order or the same would be done through legislation in the Parliament. Now, once again, the heads of ruling coalition, PML-N Quaid Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari, ANP President Asfandyar Wali Khan and JUI-F Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, are likely to meet here on Tuesday and will discuss the future course of action of the ruling coalition. And in this respect the hottest issue on the agenda will be the judges' restoration. The political analysts are of the view that there is unanimity of view on the restoration of the judges but the difference is on the modus operandi as PML-N wants it through an executive order while the PPP leadership wants to get it through the bills of Parliament. The divergent viewpoint of both the major coalition partners were brought closer during the one-on-one meeting between Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari wherein it was decided that the Parliament, after coming into existence, would pass a resolution within 30 days recommending the restoration of the judges and, in return, the PML-N would join the government. But it is not mentioned in the declaration how the deposed judges would be restored, as according to the constitutional experts, either the judges' restoration would require an executive order by the Prime Minister, or it would be done through legislation by bringing an amendment in the Constitution. But without going into the contents and intents of the Bhurban Declaration there was wild demand coming from all directions that judges should be restored within 30 days of installation of the new Parliament. Again there is a sharp contrast in the views of the legal and constitutional experts, as some of them are of the view that the restoration of the judges would require a simple executive order by the Prime Minister while others consider that it would require a proper legislation through making amendment in the Constitution. But one thing is crystal clear that any procedure wasn't mentioned in the Bhurban Declaration for the restoration of the judges. The sources close to the PPP and PML-N disclosed to TheNation that the upcoming meeting between the coalition partners would focus on the draft of the resolution that was prepared by the Cabinet Committee dealing with the issue. The stage of restoration process and procedure to be adopted for it would be discussed later on, they added. The sources privy to the development on the subject informed that the issue would be resolved in consultation with all the stakeholders, including the Presidency. The issue would be resolved with win-win situation for all the stakeholders, the sources added. These sources argued if the amendments introduced in the Pemra Ordinance, following the unlawful and unconstitutional move of November 3, 2007 by President Pervez Musharraf in his capacity as Chief of Army Staff, required legislation for undoing them, how the removal of the judges could be done through an executive order. Some of the legal experts said that by tabling a bill for revoking the amendments made in Pemra the government had set a precedent and for restoration of the judges a proper legislation would be required and the matter could not be settled through a simple executive order by the Premier. The political analysts are of the view that by pressing for legislation for the restoration of the judges, the PPP would not be deviating from its declared stand on the issue, as the party Co-Chairman had time and again said that they would take each and every matter to the Parliament and seek guidance from the top legislative body of the country.
