ISLAMABAD " Pakistan Muslim League-N here on Thursday handed over its proposed constitutional amendment bill to PPP and both the parties vowed at the event to jointly work for the repeal of 17th Amendment. Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vowed to work together for reaching a consensus over constitutional bills for repealing the 17th Amendment from the Constitution. Talking to the media persons here at the Parliament House on the eve of handing over of PML-N's proposed amendments package to PPP, leaders from both the parties including Mian Raza Rabbani, Dr. Babar Awan, Ishaq Dar and Ahsan Iqbal called for concentrated efforts to reach a consensus draft bill. "As many as three draft bills have been submitted in the parliament by PML-Q and MQM while PML-N and PPP have prepared two separate bills to repeal the 17th Amendment. We would review all these bills to reach a consensus document for the 18th Constitutional Amendment", said Mian Raza Rabbani. Rabbani assured his colleagues from the PML-N that all promises made by Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto would be materialised. Minister for Inter Provincial Coordination Mian Raza Rabbani said the Parliamentary Party and the Parliamentary Committee of PPP would review the draft bill presented by the PML-N. "The PPP had also submitted its Constitutional Package over the issue some six months back. We want to reach a consensus document which could be tabled in the National Assembly for approval," he added. Rabbani said the country was passing through a critical phase while the schedule (VI) of the 17th Constitutional Amendment had given protection to so many steps taken by the previous government. Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Dr. Babar Awan said the party would review the proposed bill by PML-N in its totality and efforts would be made to reach a consensus over the issue. "We are pursuing a policy of strengthening the institutions as well as democracy. There are five draft bills already tabled by different political parties. We would have to take all the political parties along and all promises made by Benazir Bhutto Shaheed in Charter of Democracy (CoD) would be fulfilled," he assured. Senator Ishaq Dar said it was the moral obligation of his party to restore the Constitution as of October 12, 1999, position. "We have passed on our draft proposals for 18th Amendment to the PPP leaders. PML-Q and MQM have already submitted their proposals over the subject," he added. Dar said his party wanted to repeal most of the clauses of the 17th Amendment. PML-N Secretary Information Ahsan Iqbal said the CoD had given the nation a new hope. Due to the volatile situation, we would have to move forward swiftly, he added. "Practical steps are needed vis-a-vis the appointments of new judges, transparent electoral system, Civil-Military coordination and establishment of good governance. The PML-N would support all those legislations by the PPP government which are in line with the CoD," he concluded.
