ISLAMABAD: National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq on Sunday said that the supremacy of the Constitution was our ultimate destination that guaranteed democracy, fundamental rights and security for each and every citizen of the state.

"The sanctity of this sacred document is immense, which must be upheld at any cost," he said in his message on the eve of 'Constitution Day' being celebrated today (Monday) across the country.

Sadiq highlighted the historical significance of the day and said: "Forty-four years ago, the representatives of the first democratically elected legislature of the country, united by common purpose and an unwavering resolve, unanimously passed the constitution of the country as a guiding principle to our journey towards a democratic, peaceful and prosperous country." "Periodic interventions by undemocratic forces held the constitution in abeyance and retarded the pace of a strong federation and democratic culture," he said. "Such misadventures proved detrimental to the state of security, human rights and development of the country," he added. Remembering the sacrifices rendered by the political forces of the country to ensure supremacy of the constitution, the NA speaker said: "The democratic forces while striving for reinstating the constitution and restoring democracy faced enormous challenges and they confronted the tyrannical regimes with resilience and an unrelenting resolve for supremacy of the constitution."
