ISLAMABAD – The Pakistan People’s-Party led coalition partners have decided to call the joint sitting of the Parliament on February 6 ostensibly to ratify the governor’s rule imposed in Balochistan on January 14.Under Article 234 of the Constitution, the federal government is supposed to provide the Parliament’s cover to the governor’s rule within 50 days from the date of its imposition.Sources in the government revealed that a summary for summoning the joint sitting of the Parliament on February 6 had already been sent to the President for notification. The sources added there would be a one-point agenda of seeking formal approval from the Parliament to the imposition of the governor’s rule.Meanwhile, talking to media persons at the Parliament House, Federal Minister for Law and Justice Farooq H Naek said the government would table the bill for creation of Bahawalpur Janoobi Punjab province in the National Assembly next week and hoped all the parties in the Lower House of the Parliament would extend support to it. The bill would be tabled to meet the constitutional requirement under Article 239, he added.To a question, he said the chief election commissioner and members of the Election Commission of Pakistan enjoyed constitutional protection against their removal and none of them could be removed from their posts without following a tedious and lengthy procedure laid down in the Constitution, which was the same as was for the removal of a judge of a superior court.To another question, he said that under the given situation, the reconstitution of the Election Commission of Pakistan was only possible if all the members of the commission stepped down.He further said as the country was approaching the next general elections, it would not be advisable to go for such an exercise as any attempt to alter or reconstitute the Election Commission at this juncture would tantamount to delaying the elections.To yet another question, the federal law minister said the election schedule would be announced by the President of Pakistan while schedule for filing nomination papers would be given by the chief election commissioner.
