Parliament,not apex court, is supreme, says Federal Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira in the ongoing 'talks of supremacy'

Parliament and not the apex court is the supreme institution of the country since it represents the will of the people, said the Federal Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira on November 6, reports The Express Tribune. “There is no doubt that the Supreme Court is the apex court in the country, but when we talk about supreme institution, Parliament is the supreme institution as per the Constitution,” Qamar Zaman said. “It is Parliament which has the power to make, amend or abrogate the Constitution. Similarly, Parliament has the right to abolish any institution. In fact, Parliament is the mother of all institutions,” he added. 

Referring to Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhury and Army Chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani’s earlier statements Information Minister Kaira said that there was nothing in the statements of both “against each other”.  General Kayani had said that for the wrongs of individuals whole institutions should not be maligned. Analysts believe Gen Kayani was referring to the Asghar Khan case where the apex court ruled that two former generals had funded politicians to manipulate the results of 1990 elections. 

Meanwhile, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Senator and former President of the Supreme Court Bar Association, Aitzaz Ahsan while talking to the media outside the Lahore High Court (LHC) ruled out conflict saying that Kaira did not see any confrontation between the state institutions. He, however, added that the Constitution does not allow the Chief Justice and the Army Chief to give political statements. Ahsan pledged that the legal fraternity would resist any unconstitutional move by anyone. Anti-democratic forces are attempting to weaken democracy in the country, he added.
