ISLAMABAD :Parliamentary leader of Pakistan People's Party (PPP) in the Senate Mian Raza Rabbani has questioned the government's move to reconstitute Defence Committee of the Cabinet (DCC) as CCNS. Rabbani while talking to reporters at the Parliament House on Friday said that the government should take the Parliament into confidence on the formation of Cabinet Committee on National Security.

A Defence Committee of the Cabinet (DCC) presided over by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif here on Thursday had decided to reconstitute DCC as the Cabinet Committee on National Security with the new composition.

He said that it had been agreed in the Charter of Democracy (CoD) that National Security Council would be abolished at all. He said that the government as well as its advisors on national security should explain the features and composition of the CCNS to the Parliament.

The government should tell under what law the new committee was formed, whether it had been formed under the National Security Council Act of Pervez Musharraf era or DCC had been renamed, he said.
