ISLAMABAD - A resolution will be moved in the National Assembly on Monday for the restoration of the judges sacked by former President General (Retd) Pervez Musharraf last year. This was disclosed at a joint news conference addressed by PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif, Awami National Party (ANP) leader Asfandyar Wali and JUI-F head Maulana Fazlur Rahman at the Punjab House here Friday. The resolution would be drafted by a committee comprising two members each from PPP and PML-N, the leaders revealed to the reporters. The decision to draft a resolution and form a committee for the purpose came as a result of efforts made by Asfandyar Wali and Fazl to bridge the differences between PML-N and PPP. At the meeting of the heads of all four coalition parties last Tuesday the ANP and JUI had sought 72-hour time to play their role in bringing about an agreement to resolve the lingering judges' issue. Sharif said the resolution would be tabled in the National Assembly on Monday and after a debate it should be passed on Wednesday, which he asserted "must be the day of restoration of the judges." Asfandyar Wali said that he and the JUI chief had sought 72-hour time during the meeting of the coalition heads at the Zardari House last Tuesday to help bring about an agreed solution. As a result of the efforts made thereafter it has been agreed to table a resolution in the National Assembly to undo all unconstitutional steps taken on November 3 last year by Gen (Retd) Musharraf, he said. The ANP president said they had talks with Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari and both sides agreed to set up a committee to draft a  resolution for the restoration of the deposed judges. He said the committee would finalize its work within the next two days to table the resolution in the National Assembly on Monday. The ANP chief said that Asif Ali Zardari agreed to the proposal after discussing the matter with his "kitchen cabinet." Maulana Fazlur Rahman said JUI and ANP had played a key role in the face of apprehensions that the coalition was heading for a breakup. He said the committee to draft the resolution would comprise two members each from PPP and PML-N. Fazlur Rahman said the Assembly would debate the resolution on Monday and Tuesday. To a question about restoration of the deposed judges on Wednesday, Maulana Fazlur Rahman said that it was "proposed" by PML-N, adding that the exercise could take a day more but the sacked judges would  definitely be restored during the coming week. Nawaz Sharif said he was grateful to Maulana Fazlur Rahman and Asfandyar Wali for their "very positive role" for the restoration of the judges. The PML-N Quaid said that his party never had any intention to leave the coalition and pointed out that it was the unity of the alliance partners that led to Musharraf's resignation. Nawaz Sharif said the August 7 agreement signed by him and the PPP Co-Chairman clearly provided that the judges would be restored within 24 hours after Musharraf's exit. He said the judges should have been restored on August 19 after Musharraf's resignation but the PML-N accepted to give 72-hour time sought by ANP, JUI and Fata representatives to play their role to resolve the issue. Nawaz Sharif said, "The nation has given us a mandate in the February 18 general elections to undo Pervez Musharraf's unconstitutional steps." He said that it was for the first time in the history of Pakistan that "we are struggling for the restoration of the judiciary which  should also stand up against any attempt to dissolve the Parliament in future." Nawaz Sharif, responding to a question, said the restoration of Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry was central to the whole exercise. "I have no personal relationship with the deposed Chief Justice but independence of judiciary is the goal that I have been striving for." He remarked that restoration of judges without reinstating the Chief Justice would be nothing more than a "joke." Answering another question, PML-N Quaid said that the judges would be restored in accordance with the  March 9 Murree Declaration signed by him and Asif Ali Zardari. JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman and ANP President Asfandyar Wali Khan finally managed to break the impasse on judges' restoration issue and both PPP and PML-N leadership came out with an agreement to table the resolution before the National Assembly on Monday on the judges' restoration. The sources in the ruling coalition disclosed to TheNation that the six-member committee to draft the resolution seeking the National Assembly's approval for restoration of the deposed judges comprised Federal Minister for Law, Farooq H Naek, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Sherry Rehman and Leader of the House in Senate Mian Raza Rabbani from PPP side and Senator Ishaq Dar, Federal Minister for Education Ahsan Iqbal and Kh Asif would represent PML-N. The sources privy to the deliberations of the meetings held between JUI-F Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman and ANP President Asfandyar Wali Khan with the leadership of PPP and PML-N to break the impasse on the judges issue, were of the view that though the deadlock was over but yet the restoration of judges was vague as by simple passage of the resolution the judges could not be restored and it would require either an executive order or a proper legislation for bringing back the deposed judges to their seats. The sources further informed that the six members committee would likely meet on Sunday evening to draft the resolution to be tabled before the House on Monday evening and for it they would not be requiring the approval of the party leadership as they were given the mandate to do it. The sources said that the House would have a debate on the resolution for couple of days as Mian Nawaz Sharif wanted the restoration of the judges by Wednesday while the JUI-F Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman in a press conference said that the matter could take a day or so extra for its passage from the Lower House of the Parliament. Meanwhile, in another development PML-N Quaid Mian Nawaz Sharif had not held meeting with Asif Ali Zardari on Friday and left for Murree in the evening. Earlier, it was believed that Mian Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari would be having a meeting on the subject along with the junior coalition partners, ANP and JUI-F, but the meeting was put off and it was said by the official spokesman that their was definite schedule and due to the hectic schedule of both the leaders they could not hold the meeting. Meanwhile, the ruling coalition had also called the Senate on Monday and there was likelihood that the resolution for the restoration of the judges would be tabled simultaneously in both the houses. Some of the sources were giving great importance to the resolution seeking the restoration of the deposed judges and linked it to the November 3 act of the former President Musharraf and would be putting the Presidential Act of proclamation of emergency on November 3, 2007 in question. AFP adds: The ruling coalition was riven by divisions despite crunch talks on Friday, raising fears for the government's ability to tackle Taliban bloodshed. Former premier Nawaz Sharif pushed back his deadline for the coalition to restore judges sacked by former president Pervez Musharraf, prolonging the squabbles that have prevented it from focusing on the rising militant threat. The PPP and PML-N failed to find common ground during talks on Friday on how to replace Musharraf and how to reinstate dozens of judges he sacked. But there was no immediate comment from Asif Zardari. A resolution would need his support but he has shown no sign of keeping the pledge he made in May to restore the judges. Critics have suggested that Zardari is against the return of deposed Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry because he could overturn an amnesty on corruption charges that allowed Benazir and Zardari to return from exile. The coalition's feuding has worried Western nations looking for continuity after Musharraf's departure, and distracted the government's attention from the increasingly brazen militant insurgency. The possibility of a coalition split has worried the United States and other countries who want a stable Pakistan.
