Islamabad: The government remained unsuccessful to convince Pakistan Peoples Party’s leaders over drafting legislation for the revival of military courts.
PPP’s spokesperson Senator Farhatullah Babar said that PPP did not agree with the government’s draft legislative proposals aimed at restoring military courts.
He also said: “Media reports about PPP’s agreement to draft legislation are incorrect and PPP contradicts them”, adding, “we also reject such news spread by official agency.”
Babar also said that PPP still stands on its demands which were proposed earlier.
On Thursday, the meeting was held between parliamentarians focusing on nine recommendations proposed by main opposition party, the Pakistan Peoples Party.
After meeting, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar claimed that PPP showed its support to reinstate military courts for a period of two years. However, PPP on Thursday evening has refuted Dar’s claim and said that its still persists with its recommendations.
