The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has raised concerns regarding the appointment of PML-N Senator Ishaq Dar as the leader of the house in the Senate, suggesting a possible alliance between the PML-N and the caretaker government.
The PPP has called for an explanation from the interim authorities, seeking to understand the basis on which Dar serves in a traditionally independent role.
Syed Nayyer Hussain Bokhari, the Secretary-General of PPP, has openly questioned why the caretaker government did not appoint an independent senator as the Leader of the House in the Senate. He pointed out the unusual nature of Dar’s position, which typically represents the Prime Minister and includes certain ceremonial privileges.
Ensuring Election Fairness
Bokhari emphasized the essential role of the establishment, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), and the caretaker government in ensuring that the upcoming elections are conducted freely and fairly. He called for proof of their impartiality to guarantee the political and economic stability of the country. He affirmed that while the PPP is open to dialogue with all registered parties, it will not engage with those perceived as threats to the state.
The PPP maintains its stance on fostering reconciliation and is prepared to form alliances with political adversaries to uphold the Constitution and democracy. This sentiment reinforces the party’s dedication to navigating the political landscape with integrity and respect for democratic values.
