Pak PM dodges court strategy question ahead of Swiss case hearing

Islamabad, Aug 7 (ANI): Ahead of the NRO implementation case hearing on Wednesday, Pakistan Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf chose to play down the issue, and remained focused on matters pertaining to the upcoming elections.

He refused to be drawn into a discussion on the expected outcome of the hearing, where he is to respond to the Supreme Court’s order about writing a letter to the Swiss authorities seeking to reopen graft cases against President Asif Ali Zardari.

Ashraf chose to deliver a lecture on peaceful coexistence among state institutions, and said that all institutions, including the executive and judiciary, should work for the country, The Express Tribune reports.

Ashraf, maintaining a careful diplomatic stance on the possible outcome of a judiciary-executive tussle that has already cost one Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) prime minister his job, said: “It is the right of people to elect their government. They have the right to have a government of their choice.” (ANI)
