ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People's Party has convened its parliamentary party meeting for Wednesday in the wake of Yusuf Raza Gilani's disqualification as Prime Minister by the Supreme Court today.

 

PPP General Secretary, Jehangir Badar, flanked by Qamar Zaman Kaira and Raja Pervez Ashraf, announced this while addressing a press conference here on Tuesday after the PPP held its Central Executive Committee.

 

When asked whether the Federal Cabinet still exists or not, Jehangir Badar confirmed that the Cabinet stood dissolved after the disqualification of Gilani. "Anywhere in the world wherever the PM is gone the Cabinet is gone," he said.

 

Qamar Zaman Kaira said PPP has its reservations over the Supreme Court's judgment, however, he advised the party workers to observe patience and not to engage in any sort of protest.

 

He said the PPP will decide its future course of action after holding consultations with its coalition partners.

 

Raja Pervez Ashraf said, the democratic process would continue without interruption and PPP would continue to play its positive role in the greater interest of the country.

 

He said the CEC authorized President Asif Ali Zardari to finalize as to what line of action PPP will follow in future. "He (President Zardari) will do everything that is in the interest of the country, its parliament and democracy," he added.

 

Earlier today, the Supreme Court disqualified Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani as the prime minister with effect from April 26, 2012 in its verdict in NA Speaker's ruling case.

 

"Yousuf Raza Gilani is disqualified from membership of parliament from April 26, the date of his conviction. He has also ceased to be the prime minister of Pakistan," said chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry said.

 

"The Election Commission shall issue a notice of disqualification and the president is required to take necessary steps to ensure continuation of democratic process," he added.

SALUTE to the Chief Justice of Pakistan .. A decision which should have been taken way before .. but nevertheless.. its better to be late than never.. The nation should grasp this opportunity and push the PPP led government to the wall and demand fair and free elections.. We can survive a few more days without electricity but we cannot survive a single more second with this corrupt government..

What a statement. Zardari will never act in the interest of the Country. He has own interest against 180m people. Whoever act will him will be signing his own death warrant. The only hope for non corrupt is to get rid of him the way his shaheed wife did.

Longest serving PM received the maximum humiliation by far no PM could have got, specially when he had all his govt machinery towards saving him by hook (aitzaaz) or by crook (by malik riaz)

@mirza from Canada. The oblivion Gilani could be lost in could be Canada. I heard Canada is a damn good place if you have a couple of billion dollars in your bank account.

Federal cabinet got to be desolved. Parliament building got to be sterlized. we do not want any germ or becteria of those thugs. Now there should be no way out for any of those corrupt rullers. Those shameless Thugs are talking about presidential pardon. Such move is dream and could result in great disaster in the country. Now early election is solution. If new PM elected then he has to write a letter or meet the same fate.

He should now return the money which he had spent on his visit to the UK, so that money can be spent on energy and education.
