We’ll secure our full tenure: PM

President no longer has the power to dissolve Parliament’

Orders study of flood affectees’ power/gas bills, loan waivers’ proposals
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has again made it clear that government will complete its full five-year term for the sake of democratic stability in the country. While giving an interview to a private TV channel, Prime Minister said the legislature has been elected for five years, those who wish its early dissolution, were, therefore, not sincere with the nation.
He said that PPP-led government very well knows how to tackle issues adding Parliament is the best forum to resolve lingering problems, stressing we respect Parliament’s supremacy.
He said the government would overcome all the problems it’s faced with and it respects all the institutions of the country.

The President no longer has the power to dissolve Parliament and dismiss an elected premier, Gilani said, adding no one wants martial law now .
All institutions want to see the democratic system moving forward and getting stronger, he added.  Premier said that the government would complete its tenure, adding those who wished its premature termination would be disappointed to the full.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister directed the authorities concerned to examine proposals for waiver of electricity/gas bills as well as farm loans in the flood affected areas.
Addressing a public meeting during his visit to a camp established for the affectees in Dadu earlier, he said their demands merit consideration.
Gilani went on to say the government has already announced provision of seed and fertilisers free of cost in the flood-marred areas.
He promised to soon convene  MNAs and MPAs of all  affected areas for consultations on launching development schemes.
He said the Centre would sponsor one major scheme in every constituency like that of remodeling canals. He announced the same for Dadu Canal on top of a grant worth Rs100 million for two constituencies of the city.
He expressed his dissatisfaction over the pace of distribution of Watan Cards and directed Nadra to expedite the process.
He said the hitches in issuance of national identity cards should also be removed on urgent basis so that every affected family could get the initial grant of Rs20,000 for the reconstruction of houses. He pointed out that as provinces are expressing inability to take extra burden due to their financial weakness, the Centre would provide the remaining 80,000 rupees to each of the family whose house was damaged in the floods.
Gilani expressed the confidence that the reconstruction of houses would generate economic activities and employment opportunities for people.-NNI
