Islamabad - The tension that severed the PML-N's ties with coalition partner PPP since quitting the federal cabinet on May 13 was defused Tuesday when PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari unconditionally agreed to impeach President Pervez Musharraf. Well-placed political sources told TheNation that Asif Ali Zardari and Mian Nawaz Sharif have agreed on modalities of impeaching the President Musharraf with the former to do it without further delay while the latter sought some time. Sources privy to talks insisted that PPP Co-Chairperson had suggested to going about impeachment should President Musharraf refuse to accept the PPP-proposed constitutional package. The meeting, which lasted for more than one and half-hour at the friendly atmosphere at the Punjab House, discussed a wide range of issues, including the constitutional package, the ongoing judicial crisis and the upcoming national budget for 2008-2009. PML-N Quaid Mian Nawaz Sharif was assisted by the party's president, Mian Shahbaz Sharif, parliamentary leader in the National Assembly, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, and Ishaq Dar, while PPP Co-Chairperson Asif Ali Zardari's team included Aftab Shaban Mirani, Syed Nayyar Husain Bokhari and Farzana Raja. The meeting was of great political significance, as it had not only broke the ice that persisted at the top leadership level of the two coalition partners on judicial crisis prompting the PML-N to quit the federal cabinet as protest and Nawaz Sharif avoided to resume contact with PPP leaders. Both sides, sources said, have agreed to foil together conspiracies hatched up by the anti-democratic forces against newly-elected government. Asif Ali Zardari has persuaded the PML-N leadership for re-joining the Federal cabinet but Nawaz Sharif did not budge from party's principal stand pertaining to resolution of judicial crises. "We should resolve the judicial crisis in line with the wishes of people so as to focus on other issues of national and public importance", party's central information secretary Professor Ahsan Iqbal quoted Nawaz Sharif as telling the PPP-Co-Chairperson. The PML-N Chief also assured PPP of his party's total cooperation in the passage of national budget for 2008-2009 from the National Assembly. Zardari told the meeting that proposed constitutional package was being given final touches and the draft copy would be given to the PML-N in a couple of days. "There was consensus between the two leaders to support each other and work together to strengthen the democratic system and parliament." The proposed PPP package seeks to take some powers from President and vest them in the Prime Minister. The President's powers to appoint the chiefs of the army, navy and air force would be transferred to the Prime Minister, while parliament will appoint the Chief Election Commissioner. "The main outline of the package is to transfer the powers to the Prime Minister and the parliament which were taken away by the president," a PPP leader said. The constitutional amendment package also provides for the reinstatement of dozens of judges deposed by Musharraf last year.
