ISLAMABAD - Since the memo issue is ostensibly proving blow to the PPP-led government, the concerned government quarters engaged in plethora of issues have yet to ponder about appointing next chairman of Public Accounts Committee (PAC), after the resignation of Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan. The appointment of new chairman PAC could be wearisome for incumbent government as remaining within the ambit of Charter of Democracy (CoD) signed by the PPP and the PML-N, a member of opposition would be appointed as chairman. But, the former PAC chairman with his resignation made it clear that the next member would not be from Pakistan Muslim League (N). Total strength of the PAC is 23, sources said, and five senior members are from PML(N), so they would not be in next race for contender. The remaining opposition parties Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) and other members from independent group are also not vying for next chairman PAC slot, the sources said. In violation of the CoD signed by two major political forces, the sources said that incumbent government might appoint PPP Information Secretary Qamar Zaman Kaira as new PAC chief. The PPP members, the sources said, before appointing new PAC chief are most likely to make effort to calm down Pakistan Muslim League (N)for appointing members from their party as next chairman. It is relevant to mention here that in the next PAC meeting, which is not yet scheduled, the audit paras of PPP-led government would be discussed. The sources said that PML-N was planning to give tough time to PPP while discussing the audit paras related to incumbent government. Earlier, the members of the coalition government Qamar Zaman Kaira, Nadeem Afzal Gondal, Yasmeen Rehman, Noor Alam, Haider Abbas Rizvi, Waseem Akhtar, Riaz Fatyana had made an attempt to summon PAC meeting by submitting signed requisition in National Assembly (NA) Secretariat. But, the sudden resignation of Ch Nisar had changed the situation and now the government has been left with no option but to submit requisition for PAC meeting. Whom should we submit the requisition when there is no chairman, as per rules the requisition is submitted to the chairman, said a PPP senior legislator, member PAC, on condition of anonymity. According to rules, under Article 54(3) of the Constitution, the PAC committee is bound to convene a meeting within 14 days after receiving the requisition.
