ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Ex-servicemen Association (PESA) on Sunday supported the decision of the Chief Justice of Pakistan to reject the formation of Judicial Commission in accordance with the government’s Terms of Reference (TOR).

The TORs are impracticable and PESA had already requested the CJP recently to take Suo Moto action to separate the issue of Panama Leaks and deal with it on urgent basis, said a press release issued on Sunday.

The PESA members said that despite claims of clean elections by certain quarters, process of disqualifications and bye elections is still going on which is unheard of in other democratic countries therefore early adoption of biometric identification of voters and electronic voting is necessary.

They said that national leaders are expected to be extra clean and most honest; they must not hide behind culprits of bygone era; they should come clean and regain confidence of the people.

The PESA advised the PM to take initiative and explain about the sources of income for the assets accumulated by his family and details of the method adopted for transfer of those funds.

The PESA urged that the opposition and government should stop point scoring and join hands to pave way for an effective commission which can dispense justice and eradicate corruption which has barred national development.

PESA Members condemned the hanging of Jamaat-e-Islami leader in Bangladesh for alleged war crimes in accordance with peace agreement signed in 1974.
