ISLAMABAD - Keeping in view the growing controversy and resistance particularly from Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) on the Local Government system, Pakistan Peoples Party leadership has decided to linger the issue till October endthe time when the LBs would automatically go out of the federal governments purview, sources in the party disclosed to The Nation Monday. About a month back, Pakistan Peoples Party-led coalition government had decided to suspend the Nazims and appoint administrators to run the affairs for the intermediate period till the time the provinces would come up with an alternate system to run this primary tier of the governance. Premier Gilani had also called the meeting of all the four provincial chief ministers and sought their suggestions on the subject and then forwarded these recommendations to President Asif Ali Zardari for further action as till the completion of the stipulated term of the incumbent setup it would remain in the domain of President. The sources said that President had dispatched the proposals forwarded by the provincial governments for legal review to Federal Law Ministry and as some of the coalition partners particularly MQM was in favour of keeping the District and Tehsil Government setups intact and the differences between them were still intact, so PPP decided to linger the matter till the Local Government system would get out of the Schedule 6 of Constitution and go back to the provinces. The sources in the PPP informed TheNation that even Pakistan Peoples Party was having a lot of reservations on the appointment of administrators in Punjab where they were coalition partners of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). The sources said that Premier Gilani himself had taken up the issue of administrators with Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif and wanted accommodation of a sizeable number of bureaucrats of their choice as administrators once the old system wound up. The sources further disclosed that except MQM and PML-Q rest of the political parties comprising the federal and provincial legislatures wanted end to the District Government system introduced by Gen Pervez Musharraf.
