Asfandyar says ANP to resist bid for presidential system

Peshawar

April 20, 2019

PESHAWAR: Awami National Party (ANP) President Asfandyar Wali Khan on Friday said his party would resist any bid to introduce the presidential system in the country.

Through a statement issued here on the Jashne Pakhtunkhwa, ANP president said that 18th Amendment to the Constitution had empowered provinces and guaranteed development and prosperity.

Asfandyar Wali warned the rulers of the consequences against the 18th Amendment and added that his party workers and leaders were willing to face bullets in defending their rights.

The ANP chief said that the government would not survive if his party staged a protest against any conspiracy against democracy. He said that his party was ready to stage a protest that would last more than 126 days. Asfandyar Wali said that dictators had damaged the country’s interests in the past and the incumbent government should not repeat their mistakes.

“The bid by the dictators to implement the presidential system in the country resulted in the country’s dismemberment and repeating the same mistake would not do any service to the country,” he added.

He said that if the opposition launched the protest against the government ANP would become its part.

The ANP leader criticised the provincial government for its failure to provide relief to the masses.
