    PML(N), PPP & MQM May Not Be Allowed To Contest Poll: Election Commision of Pakistan



    Simple reasons. These three political parties needs to change their leadership, if they really have one

    ISLAMABAD: The three major political parties of the country -- the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz group), Pakistan People's Party and the Mutahidda Qaumi Movement -- may not be allowed to contest the October general elections if they do not remove their present top leadership.

    According to sources the newly enforced Political Parties Order 2002 and the draft constitutional package together provide an interpretation of law where the election commission could prevent a political party, headed by a convict or absconder, from contesting the election.

    A constitutional expert in the national reconstruction bureau (NRB), when contacted, even admitted that the PPO 2002 could possibly be interpreted in a manner to bar a political party, headed by a person who is disqualified to be member of the parliament under Article 63 of the constitution, from contesting elections. The NRB expert, on condition of anonymity, said the PPO 2002 did not include any provision that visibly imposed a ban on political party headed by a person disqualified under Article 63 of the Constitution.

    The Election Commission of Pakistan, the expert said, could ask the concerned political party to replace its leader who is disqualified to be a head the party. In case the party does not replace its leader and continues to be headed by a disqualified leader then a decision could be taken by the election commission to ban such a party from contesting election, a source said.

    The bureau experts though believed that such an interpretation would be an "extreme" step. They admitted at the same time that the political parties could not have the office-bearers who were disqualified under Article 63 of the constitution. Section 5 of the PPO 2002 says that a person shall not be appointed or serve as an officer-bearer of a political party if he is not qualified to be, or is disqualified from being elected or chosen as a member of the Parliament under Article 63 of the constitution or under any other law for the time being in force.

    Article 63 of the draft constitutional package includes the disqualification of even those who have been convicted by a court on a charge of corrupt practice, moral turpitude or misuse of power or authority; and those who have been proclaimed as absconder, or convicted and sentenced to imprisonment for having absconded, by a court.

    The present top leadership of PML-N, PPP and the Muttahida -- Nawaz Sharif, Benazir Bhutto and Altaf Hussain, respectively -- are disqualified under these conditions to head their respective political parties because either they are convicts or proclaimed absconder in different cases.

    Every political party desiring to take part in general elections 2002 is required under the PPO 2002 to complete its intra-party elections in accordance with the party constitution by August 5, 2002.

    The party leader of each political party, under the PPO 2002, is required to submit the certificate under his signatures to the election commission to the effect that the elections were held in accordance with the constitution of the party and the PPO to elect the party leader and other office-bearers at the federal, provincial and local levels.

    The certificate must also contain the names, designations and addresses of the party leader and all other office- bearers elected at the federal, provincial and local levels. According to the sources in view of this situation if Nawaz Sharif, Benazir Bhutto and Altaf Hussain continue to be elected by their respective parties as their head then the election commission might decide not to allow these parties to contest the next general elections unless they replace their leadership.

    These leaders, however, could continue heading their respective political parties and participate in the next elections too only if the military regime drops the draft changes in the Article 63 of the Constitution.

      this is a good move, but could very well backfire if the govt falls into the hands of treacherous pple.

      Someone could come along and lodge charges ag/ honest and good politicians, and thus bar them from contesting elections.

      There would have to be some security measures to ensure ag/ this.
      I believe in dragons, good men, and other fantasy creatures.

        ISI is a political party!

        Even if PPP, PML, etc are allowed to run, Army will rig the elections anyways.

        There will be no check on them they are the ones in charge of the 'vote counting'.

          Easier said than done. Is the Army really going to take on all the political forces of the country at the same time? The religious parties are already starting to accept money from "esteemed guests". Is the army really going to be able to deal with mass demonstrations? I think PPP and PML are counting on the army to suppress them, so agitational politics can begin. I hope Musharaff can finess this.

                Accha, how many times did PML and PPP accepted they have rigged the elections?

                Never!

                Musharraf did accept this fault. Didn't he?

                PML and PPP have been saying Musharraf has declared a war of democracy.

                Loo kar loo baat.

                Mush has slapped them with the same coin ->DEMOCRACY Article 62 of the consitituion

                        Points to Ponder.
                        1. The fact that Indians hate Musharraf means he is good for Pakistan.

                        2. The Common Wealth, the UK and the West want return of Corrupt politicians means that they are bad for Pakistan.

                        3. Democracy is a Drama. No one in the world practices true Democracy.

                        4. Benazir is Life Chairperson of PPP. Where is democracy?
                        5. Nawaz Sharif is a product of Zia. Abbaji makes the decision for PML. Where is democracy?
                        6. Altaf Hussain gives call for strike and paralizes Karachi. The daily wage earners, the shopkeepers and small businessmen suffer. How can he be the leader of Muhajirs?

                        All three have run away and hiding from justice. How can they be entrusted with the rule of Pakistan?

                        Benazir is supported by India, Altaf is supported by UK and Nawaz can be bought by any one. All three have looted the country. What to talk of allowing them to contest elections or not, they should be tried for treason and hanged.

                            more points to be pondered!

                            .. who killed and tortured people in 1983 MRD movement? their crime demanding democracy resulting in blaming them anti-pakistani and tried for treason :n:

                            .. who involved in drug trade in 1980's ? destroying cultural fabric and bringing bad name to Pakistan in the whole world..

                            .. who involved in arms traffic resulting in kalashankov culture resulting so many deaths!

                            .. who was involved in Ojri Camp debacle in Islamabad resulting in various deaths and harassment of citizens of Pakistan?

                            yep our generals are not only involved in finacial crimeds but also crimes against humanity and much worse than politicians!!
                            Saints are fine for Heaven, but they are hell on earth.
