Fate of politicians should be decided by people of Pakistan: Bilawal Bhutto
14 April, 2018
Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Friday said the fate of politicians should be decided by the people of Pakistan.
“I am of the belief that it’s the people of Pakistan who should make such decisions about the fate of politicians,” Bilawal tweeted after a historic Supreme Court verdict ruled that lawmakers disqualified under Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution would be unable to contest elections for the rest of their life.
Stating that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) “forced the judicialisation of our politics”, Bilawal added, “Naehal (disqualified) Nawaz and Tareen must now face the consequences of their actions.”
