LAHORE: Speaker National Assembly Sardar Ayyaz Sadiq Sunday said that Parliamentary Committee on ToRs will meet in few days after he receives all the nominations.

Talking to the media outside the residence of former Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani where he had gone to congratulate the family on the recovery Ali Musa Gilani, he said that he had not yet received all the names for the proposed body.

He further informed that he had received the names from the opposition side while he was expecting nominations from the treasury tomorrow. He said he was also awaiting names from the opposition in the Senate.  To a question, he said that ToRs would include cases of loan default, corruption and Panama Leaks.

He said no political group in the Parliament had been left unrepresented in the Parliamentary committee on ToRs and all opposition parties were in contact with the ruling party in this regard. He said he was playing the role of a facilitator only and would not be a part of the parliamentary body.

He said he had informed Yusuf Raza Gilani about the ToRs of the Panama Leaks Commission. He said ex-PM Gilani was a senior politician and he sought his advice to run assembly business.

Responding to a question, he said that ToRs framed by the opposition had no mention of prime ministers’ resignation.

Asked if the prime minister will himself bear the expenses of his London visit and if there would be any political meetings taking place there, Ayyaz replied that information minister was the right person to ask this question.
