Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry has said that whenever a country is ruled by the chosen representatives under the dispensation of constitution, the system of good governance is strengthened. Delivering his key note address at the inaugural session of the 17th Commonwealth Law Conference in Hyderabad, India on Sunday, he said the existence of an independent judiciary was all the more necessary for the enforcement of fundamental rights, trade and commercial activities in accordance with law and Constitution. Dilating upon the theme of Conference Emerging economies and the rule of law: opportunities and challenges, he referred to the topic of rule of law and said it bore a substantial impact on the economic development across the globe. The judiciary of Pakistan has passed through different phases where efforts by adopting unconstitutional measures had been made, but the judiciary ensured its independence in all the circumstances because it is of the opinion that when there is constitutionalism and rule of law, it guarantees a democratic system in the country instead of military rule, a press release received here quoted him as saying.
