ISLAMABAD Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani, Monday, said that the Charter of Democracy (CoD) was the consensus document in the history of Pakistan, which was signed by two former Prime Ministers belonging to two major political parties. The Prime Minister expressed these views during the PPP parliamentary party meeting at the Parliament House. The Prime Minister said PPP had kept the CoD in its manifesto and the Governments two-year performance showed that it had fulfilled most of the promises made with the people of the country. The policy of consensus and reconciliation, he added, greatly facilitated the Governments efforts in achieving landmarks like the draft 18th Amendment Bill, NFC Award and Aghaz-e-Haqooq-e-Balochistan. While mentioning the role of the President, the Prime Minster said that for the first time in the history the President himself was transferring powers and helped in striking balance of power among the state institutions. This itself is a very positive and laudable role which has greatly contributed towards stabilising the democratic process, he added. Commenting on the role of the political leadership, the Prime Minister said by their support and timely criticism they had provided them with an opportunity to correct the future way of action. He thanked all the political parties and appreciated their role. Regarding the passage of draft 18th Amendment Bill by the Parliament, the Prime Minister stressed all the members to actively contribute during deliberations. He said it would be appreciable if the bill was also passed by the Parliament with same zeal as done by the Parliamentary Committee on Constitutional Reforms. Earlier, Chairman of the PCCR, Mian Raza Rabbani briefed the meeting on salient features of the draft bill.
