ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani on Wednesday told the National Assembly that incumbent government would ensure transparent and fair elections in the country and go to any extent to ensure supremacy of the Parliament and protect democracy. Responding to concerns on the issue of secret memo, allegedly sent by President Zardari to the US administration, raised by the Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly, the Prime Minister said that both the Presidency and Foreign Office had contradicted this saga. He further cast doubts over the credibility of the source of the news item. He said the government was more than serious in resolving the public issues. "We are ready to debate all the issues including electricity, gas and public sector organisations. He also asked the Opposition to move all the issues in the Parliament according to set procedure, as raising the issues on point of orders would not resolve them. The PM assured the opposition once it did point out the issues, the government would come up with a solution. He invited the opposition to give proposals for rehabilitation of Pakistan Steel Mills and other public entities as PIA. The PM said that law ministry had been directed to expedite formulation of the legislation pertaining to tenure of office and perks and privileges of the members of the Election Commission. Replying to the concerns raised by Ch Nisar, the PM said that PML-N President Mian Nawaz Sharif and leader of another political party also gave a positive statement on the decision of granting India the status of Most Favoured Nation. He said that the house would be taken into confidence on this issue. In response to concerns of the Opposition Leader regarding breach of sovereignty by drone attacks, he said, "We are seriously looking into the matter to convince them." "The Prime Ministers come and go but the Parliament should continue functioning in the country," he added. He also lauded the opposition parties for passing Prevention of Anti-Women Practices Bill unanimously. He further said it was for the first time in the history of Pakistan that Army and ISI were made accountable to the Parliament. Raising objections over different issues, Leader of the opposition in the National Assembly Ch Nisar Ali Khan demanded that only rebuttal on the news published in the newspaper was not enough as the newspaper should be sued. He said that a clarification on the issue about memo came from spokesman, which was not satisfactory. He strongly criticised the government's decision to increase per unit price of electricity and said there was no justification in raising its price. Nisar also proposed that increase in petroleum prices should be in accordance with international market. "Only the presence of the Prime Minister is not required to the house as issues should also be resolved," he added. Chaudhry Nisar said that Zulfiqar Mirza and MQM chief Altaf Hussain had raised serious concern about the sovereignty of the country. "As do I suppose Zulfiqar Mirza should also be invited in the assembly," he said, adding that two responsible persons had raised serious concerns but incumbent government had not uttered a single word. He said that around four and half months have been passed but the tenure of office and perks and privileges of the members of the Election Commission was decided as yet. He blamed the Ministry of Law behind the delay in this case. He said that matter was delayed in the ministry before taking the charge of incumbent minister of law. He said that PML(N) would not allow any undemocratic force to get undue advantage and manipulate things. Talking about parliamentary committee for the implementation on the resolution of All Parties Conference (APC), he said that the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) had not given name of nominee for the committee as yet. He criticised that members of the government's party were changing their loyalties on the name of revolution. He also raised serious concern that during the proceeding of the house legislators with applications in hands gather around the Prime Minister. "It ruins the atmosphere of the house," he added. The speaker National Assembly told the house that all the names for parliamentary committee for APC had been received and it would be constituted soon. Earlier, legislators across party lines were unanimous to bring the motion in a bid to give complete parliamentary support to the speaker as the custodian of the House. Pakistan Muslim League (N) legislators demanded of the speaker for bringing to move privilege motion regarding the removal of security from the residence of Speaker National Assembly. The PML(N)'s demand was also supported by other Political forces including Awami National Party (ANP), Pakistan Muslim League (Q). Supporting the PML-N's demand, PPP legislators Yasmeen Rehman, Nadeem Afzal Chan, Naveed Qamar were of the view that there was no harm to bring such privilege motion. "Let the motion be formally moved. The government will not oppose it," said Naveed Qamar. PML-N members Iyaz Sadiq, Hanif abbasi and Barjees Tahir stressed the speaker for allowing to move motion. They said that it was not matter of a breach of NA speaker's privilege, "The matter is not related to your personality. It is an important matter which should be discussed and probed," they added. ANP MNA Bushra Gohar said that this motion should be moved, as the probe would consequently expose the mindset behind this act. However, the Speaker National Assembly in her ruling said that as the issue had been rectified by the government and Interior Minister Rehman Malik assured to ascertain the reasons behind lifting of the security apparatus, the motion should be held. "I am only holding not reject it. Let's wait for reply of Minister for Interior Rehman Malik. I am thankful to all members of the House for showing the concern," she said, adding that the viewpoint of all of MPs has come. On it, Pakistan Muslim League (N) members staged token walkout, saying that the matter should be taken seriously and investigation be carried out immediately. Awami National Party (ANP) legislator Bushra Gohar speaking on point of order said that government should also make rules in which assets of Armed Forces chiefs, Corp commanders and chairmen of important commissions are also declared.
