Disagreement with PTI is on legal instruments: Ahsan Iqbal

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The federal minister for planning and development Ahsan Iqbal has said that the government team’s disagreement with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) legal team is on legal instruments.


Talking to a private television channel, the minister said that the federal government is ready to form judicial commission within 24 hours but the PTI’s legal team insists on some instruments which are contrary to the constitution.

The minister said that the government could not agree upon anything contrary to the constitution in formation of judicial commission to investigate rigging allegations in the last general elections.

The two sides have held a few rounds of talks to resolve their differences over the proposed judicial commission but they are yet unable to reach a consensus.

Earlier in a press conference in Islamabad, the PTI Chairman Imran Khan set January 18 as the deadline for the federal government to form a judicial commission to probe the alleged rigging in 2013 general elections.

Imran Khan said that the PTI will resume its agitation if the ruling party fails to meet its demand for a judicial commission.

“I request the government once again to constitute an empowered judicial commission. Otherwise, I will be left with no other option but to resume my protest,” the PTI chief said.

The PTI chief said that his party’s future course of action will be announced on January 18.
