PMs can’t name other PMs: ANP
By Zakir Hassnain
PESHAWAR: Awami National Party (ANP) Senior Vice President Ghulam Ahmed Bilour said on Sunday that a prime minister did not have any powers at all to nominate another prime minister.
It was unfortunate that there was not a single member in the assembly who was capable of running the country, he said while addressing a news conference at his residence.
The ANP leader said generals and technocrats could not run the country. It was only capable and far-sighted politicians who could run the country, he said.
Mr Bilour said lawlessness was growing in the country due to a lack of political insight. Pointing at the smooth and transparent power transfer in India, the ANP leader said it was unfortunate that whoever got power in Pakistan never abandoned it and stuck to it for good.
Mr Bilour demanded an impartial election commission be formed and elections be held and everyone be allowed to contest them. He also demanded former prime ministers Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif be allowed to return home to contest the polls.
Union council nazims Anwarul Hassan and Islamuddin with councillors joined the Watan Dost Group, which is supported by the ANP. The news conference was held to congratulate them.
