F.P. Report

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Fawad Chaudhary has said that the lifetime disqualification law is not justified.

Talking to the media on Tuesday, he said that the new parliament will do legislation about the lifetime disqualification.

“Reforms regarding the judiciary should also be introduced in the constitution. There is need to do legislation over the matters including formation of the bench and suo motu notice,” he maintained.

He said that Pakistan is the only country where the judiciary appoints and removes a judge. “Either the parliament should appoint a judge and the judiciary should have the power to remove him or the judges should be appointed by the judiciary and the parliament should have the power to remove it,” he added.

The PTI leader said that the law and the constitution should not be changed for a person. “There is need for comprehensive constitutional amendments in Pakistan,” he concluded.
