PESHAWAR: Environment Minister and ANP leader, Wajid Ali Khan said on Monday that ANP would continue to support PPP Government in the prevailing political situation for continuity of democracy and strengthening of democratic institutions in the country.
“ANP is the ally of PPP in federal and Khyber Pakthunkhwa governments and would provide full support to PPP in the current heightening political situation for sustainable democracy in Pakistan,”.
To a question, he said that the forces loyal to democracy should now learned that wrangling between political parties had only strengthened dictators and our past 64 years’ parliamentary history is replete with such happenings.
He said ANP and PPP with a diversified culture had agreed on a single point to take forward the ship of democracy that had returned after matchless struggle by democratic forces in the country. ANP and PPP coalition has weakened dictatorship and led to dawn of a new era of democracy in the country, he added.
Wajid Khan said he could not foresee any change in the political setup in country and the present government would complete its tenure. The ANP would continue to support the PPP government as we believed that destabilizing of democracy and current political system would only strengthen the hands of democratic forces in Pakistan. To a question, he said Constitution is very clear and President can ask Prime Minister to take vote of confidence or opposition could move a no trust motion against Prime Minister in line with Constitution.
He ruled out the possibility of change in the current political setup in the country. —APP
