LAHORE - PML-Q chief Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain has suggested to cut the term of an elected government from five to three years, as three years is sufficient to gauge the performance of a political party.

He made this proposal while talking to the media at his residence on Tuesday.

Shujaat said that the general elections in Australia and New Zealand were being held after three years and why Pakistan could not apply this formula.

He said, “We would be submitting our proposals and suggestions regarding electoral reforms. We will propose that no brother or son of any chief executive should be allowed to hold the same position after his father or brother.”

PML-Q chief said that time has come for ending the wrong tradition of political dynasties and there should be absolute a ban on becoming the Prime Minister and the Chief Minister for more than two terms and women elected on reserved seats should be barred from becoming member more than once.

They should not have the right to vote in the election of the Prime Minister and the Chief Minister, he said.

Meanwhile, PML-Q Punjab President, Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi has claimed that masses have selected the path of change and they would not permit the incumbent government to stay in power for long.

He made this claim while addressing a meeting of various chapters of the party at Muslim League House on Tuesday.

He said that PML-Q along with his allies held an historic public meeting at Faisalabad and Lahore meeting would be an eye opener for the rulers concerning their claims of popularity.

He chaired party meetings of districts of Lahore, Gujranwala, Sialkot, Okara, Kasur, Narowal and Nankana Sahib.

He said that various party chapters should give priority to PML-Q organisation in each constituency of the Provincial Assembly, National Assembly, former district assembly units.

He said that a committee headed by Moonis Elahi would tour all districts of the Punjab to organise the party and a schedule in this regard would be announced soon.
