LAHORE - Despite agreement over reinstatement of the deposed judges through a parliamentary resolution on May 12, the PPP and the PML-N have taken different positions over the modus operandi of its implementation. Whether the resolution should be implemented through an executive order or through a piece of legislation - is the question over which the two sides are having a major disagreement. PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif on Friday announced that judges would be restored through an executive order after adoption of the resolution by the parliament, but contrary to his statement, the PPP has taken the stance that after adoption of the resolution, the legal committee formed for the purpose, would decide whether the resolution should be implemented through an executive order or by means of a some legislation. Talking to The Nation late Friday night, PPP's spokesperson Farhatullah Babar clarified that his party endorsed Nawaz Sharif's announcement regarding re-instatement of the judges on May 12 through a parliamentary resolution; but, at the same time, he also made it clear that it would be upto the legal committee to decide whether the resolution should be implemented through an executive order or through the constitutional package. The PPP spokesperson also said that the proposed constitutional package might also be brought in the parliament the same day (May 12) after adoption of the resolution about restoration of the judges. He said the role of legal committee would be vital to decide the modus operandi of judges' restoration. Nawaz Sharif, on the other hand, Friday said that the proposed resolution and constitutional package were two entirely different things, and thus not inter-linked with each other. He said in categorical terms that judges would be restored through the resolution that would be followed by an executive order the same day. Meanwhile, Federal Law Minister Farooq H Naik said that both the parties would try their best to restore the judges on May 12, but in case of any disagreement over the modus operandi of implementation of the resolution, the matter may be delayed for a day or two to allow the legal committee to find some way out to get out of the legal complexities of the matter. But, here again, contrary to what Mr Naik said, PML-N leader Khawaja Muhammad Asif insisted while speaking in a TV show that his party would not accept any delay in restoration of the judges beyond May 12, which, he said, was the agreed deadline for the purpose between the two parties. He said the proposed constitutional package had nothing to do with restoration of the sacked judges who would be restored only through parliamentary resolution. Moreover, talking to a private T V channel, Naik said that details of the proposed constitutional package would be announced soon by PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari and PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif in the coming days. He said that the constitutional package would be put before the National Assembly along with the resolution to restore the deposed judges. He said multiple reforms had been proposed in the said legislation, and some had already been made public. When asked about delay in announcing date for reinstatement of judges, he said, "Each and every aspect of the matter has to be looked into while dealing with sensitive legal and constitutional issues. He said both the parties were committed to reinstate the deposed judges, but disagreement on any issue was essence of democracy. To a question about the anticipated stay order by the Supreme Court against the proposed executive order or the assembly resolution, Naik said, "All the aspects of the issue had already been discussed to avoid any complications."
