ISLAMABAD, (SANA): After the announcement of the election schedule by the election commission of Pakistan , the phase of distribution of tickets among the candidates is the major test of ethics of the political parties and respect of the constitution by political parties.
Now, there a question arises as to whether the political parties demanding implementation of the articles 62 and 63 of the constitution, would fulfill these requirements over the distribution of the tickets among the candidates?
The implementation of the articles 62 and 63 of the constitution was mostly demanded by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
On the one hand, both the parties kept on demanding the implementation of the articles 62 and 63 of the constitution.
While on the other hand, PML-N, first, successfully made experiments of unification block and later on made the experiment of likeminded group in the Punjab. Likewise, a large umber of supporters of dictatorship kept on joining PTI despite the demands of PTI for implementation of the articles 62 and 63.
Now, the phase of distribution of tickets among the candidates has started whether these political parties would act upon their demands?
It is worth mentioning here that these political parties would surrender before political blackmailing and the strong candidates.
The problem of the PML-N is that it has included the important leaders of the former dictator in the party. The important member of the cabinet of former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf and son of former General whose name was being discussed for the office of prime minister along with Shaukat Aziz at the time of sacking of Zafarullah Jamali, he participates in important meetings of the committees of the PML-N.
On the other hand, the female member National Assembly who was much dear to Pervez Musharraf, was elected first in 2002 and then in 2008 on the ticket of Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q), later on she not only joined Muslim League Likeminded (PML-LM), but also became information Secretary of Likeminded group. In recent days, the immoral telephonic talk (love chat) which remained for half an hour between this former female member National Assembly and that important minister of the Pervez Musharraf is there on the internet and social media, which became public after openly speaking by this former female member National Assembly on the issue of defence housing society.
On the other hand, whether in the perspective of electoral alliance between PML-N and the PML-LM over the distribution of tickets and the seat adjustment, articles 62 and 63 of the constitution would be considered.
On account of the leveling of allegations of corruption and other allegations on the Pakistan people’s Party (PPP), The major challenge confronted with the PML-N is that whether the tax evaders, fake degree-holders and the people involved in immoral activities would get the tickets from the PML-N or would make the seat adjustment with the PML-N .
The source has claimed that the former female member National Assembly perhaps could not get favour and ticket of the PML-N, but the former minister, who is the part of this immoral talk, does fulfill the criteria of articles 62 and 63 of the constitution?
Moreover, being the leader of PML-LM, he participates in the most important meetings of the PML-N
Now as to whether, the PML-N would act upon articles 62 and 63 of the constitution, while making seat adjustment with the important leaders of the PML-LM.
It is worth mentioning here that a day ago, the most important leaders of the PML-N and the candidates for the party tickets participated in the meeting held at Raiwind and PML-N President Mian Nawaz Sharif took oath from these leaders that they would no longer involve in any corruption and they would not violate the constitution of the country.
This meeting is under discussion in the political and the journalistic circles as Nawaz Sharif has taken oath from the people who came from across the country, but there would be great challenge for Nawaz Sharif as regards his conscience, merit and the implementation of the constitution of the country.
Now, it is pertinent to mention here that if PML-N President allotted the party tickets to the people having fake degrees or involved in tax evasion and immoral activities, then the people would be justified in saying that the act of taking oath from the party leaders was merely a show and nothing more.
