ISLAMABAD The Constitutional Reforms Committee of the Parliament (CRCP) will table the draft of 18th amendment before the Parliament on Friday(tomorrow), as PML-N and ANP are all set to resolve the renaming issue of NWFP on Thursday (today). Meanwhile, talking to media outside Parliament House on Wednesday evening, Federal Minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Dr Babar Awan confirmed that the Committee would table the draft of 18th Amendment before the National Assembly and Senate on Friday morning and the same evening President of Pakistan would address the Joint Sitting of the Parliament. He further said that the members of the Committee would sign the proposal of constitutional reforms on Thursday after the finalisation of the new nomenclature of NWFP by ANP and PML-N. Dr Babar Awan said that both the houses would remain in session till the passage of the 18th amendment with two-third majority from both the houses removing all distortions introduced in the Constitution during the dictatorial regimes. The Committee Chairman Mian Raza Rabbani on Wednesday requested the leadership of both ANP and PML-N to resolve the issue of renaming of NWFP by Thursday so that the Committee would be in a position to table the draft of 18th amendment before both the houses of the Parliament on Friday. The sources privy to the deliberations of the Committee meeting informed TheNation that it was decided in the meeting that certain good portions of the much controversial and notorious 17th constitutional amendment would be retained in the Constitution while the controversial things in it would be revoked. The members of PML-N and PML-Q also held a separate meeting on the issue and the members came up with consensus that the things like reduction in voters age, allocation of more seats to the minority and women in the National Assembly and Senate, overall increase in the number of seats in both houses of the Parliament and some other positive things would be retained while rest would be revoked. The members belonging to Balochistan including Shahid Bugti of Jamhoori Wattan Party, Dr Abdul Malik of the National Party and Mir Israrullah Zahari Chief of Balochistan National Party (Awami) had written dissenting note regarding the provincial autonomy and said that their demands were not fully met and they were not satisfied on the autonomy given to the provinces. It is pertinent to mention here that Senator Mir Israrullah Zahari is part of the Federal Cabinet and even then he has written dissenting note on the issue of provincial autonomy and said that they were not given what had been promised to Baloch nationals by Quaid-I-Azam. Sources aware of the developments taking place on this front informed that now the matter of tabling of 18th amendment before both houses of the Parliament was depending on the decision of PML (N) and ANP on new nomenclature of NWFP. Both the parties had summoned their Central Executive Committee meetings on Thursday to evolve consensus on some common nomenclature of NWFP, which would later announced by the heads of both parties either on the same evening or Friday. And once the issue of renaming NWFP would be resolved the draft of 18th amendment would be tabled before both the houses of the Parliament.
