Only Parliament can amend Pak Constitution: Gilani

Pak PM said all institutions were passing through the process of evolution.

Lahore: Pakistan’s Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has said that no institution other than the Parliament can rewrite the country’s Constitution.

“The Constitution clearly determines the role of all state institutions which work within their ambit and are bound to follow the Constitution,” the Dawn quoted Gilani, as saying.

He said that all institutions were passing through the process of evolution, and they would identify their role with the passage of time.

“Soon after the PPP came to power, the country was faced with multiple challenges like global recession, energy crisis, terrorism and floods which consumed energies of the government, but we would overcome these challenges,” the Prime Minister asserted.

Gilani further said that the government would not allow the misuse of any law, which might undermine the constitutional rights of people or lead to injustice.

He emphasised that he would invite all political parties for discussion on security as well as economic challenges of the country.
