ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that the government will respect and follow the guidance which will be directed by the Supreme Court of Pakistan in connection with the Senate Elections.

In a statement on Tuesday, the foreign minister said that we have filed a petition in the Supreme Court in this regard because we had two options either to seek the guidance on Open Ballot for Senate Elections or make amendment in the Constitution for which we have no two-third majority in the Parliament.

Qureshi said that the opposition parties had been demanding for Open Voting for Senate Elections in the past but now they are opposing it for political scoring.

The foreign minister said that the government has invited the opposition for dialogue and has provided a chance to them which they had already committed under the Charter of Democracy.

Referring to the role of armed forces, he said that the armed forces are protecting the borders and guard the security of the motherland.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that politicians should not politicize the role of the armed forces.

Qureshi said that the government will never compromise on matters of national interest.
