ISLAMABAD - The PML(N), PPP and legal experts committee on restoration of judges held a detailed meeting at Punjab House on Monday evening and remained in session till late at night discussing various legal and constitutional intricacies in the way of plausible solution to the issue. The committee, which was expanded after Dubai talks between the two sides and legal and constitutional experts were included in it, suffered a jolt in shape of Fakharuddin G. Ibrahim quitting the committee expressing concern over the composition and mandate of the body. Talking to media Fakharuddin G. Ibrahim, a veteran constitutional expert, said that he had reservations over the committee and he had expressed the same to the convener of the committee Federal Minister for Law and Justice Farooq H. Naik. The rest of the members of the committee held a detailed discussion on the draft resolution to be tabled before the National Assembly asking the Prime Minister to restore the judges through an executive order. The committee also discussed the other legal and constitutional hiccups associated with the restoration of the judges and the ways and means to overcome the same. The matter of the judges who had taken oath under PCO after Nov 3 also figured in the meeting, the sources privy to the deliberations of the meeting disclosed to The Nation, and it was expected that all such judges, though not likelyto be reverted to their old positions, would be made ad hoc judges adjusted accordingly. The team, with Federal Minister for Law Farooq H. Naik as its convener, comprised PML(N) President Mian Shahbaz Sharif, Senior Minister for Communication Ch Nisar Ali Khan, Federal Minister for Petroleum Kh Asif and Advisor to PM on Interior Rehman Malik, and experts on legal and constitutional matters Abdul Hafiz Pirzada, Ch Aitzaz Ahsan and Kh Haris advocate remained in session well over five hours. About the stepping out of Fakharuddin G. Ibrahim from the committee the sources disclosed that he had serious reservations of linking the resolution for restoration of the judges with the constitutional package and had conveyed his concern to the convener of the party. It is pertinent to mention here that Fakharuddin was the man who had initially drafted the resolution to be tabled before the National Assembly seeking restoration of judges through an executive order. On many an occasion he made it clear that even the restoration of judges did not need passage of any resolution from the Lower House of Parliament and the judges could be brought back to their seats with a simple executive order. The sources privy to the deliberations of the meeting disclosed that at present the team comprising the politicians and constitutional wizards were discussing the linkage of the resolution with the constitutional package to be tabled simultaneously in the House. The team is likely to meet on Tuesday again to thrash out differences and to bring the resolution and constitutional package acceptable to all the stakeholders. In another related development PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari had expressed his resolve that he would bring back Fakharuddin G. Ibrahim back in the committee and all his concerns and reservations would be addressed properly. He once again made it loud and clear that there was no difference, whatsoever, between  PML(N) and PPP over the restoration of judges and other contentious issues and they would come out of the impending crises victoriously.
