He said PPP had a working relationship with PML (N) and it was good. "The party direction is very clear in this regard and there is no danger that the working relationship would be disturbed," Taseer said. About the judges restoration the governor said it was up to the elected representatives to decide. "The constitutional package will be brought and the Parliament would decide the issue," he explained.
