Guaranteeing accountability

Guaranteeing accountability

The current political impasse created by the unconstitutional demands of PTI and PAT has not only adversely affected the economy but is also having an impact on the day to day lives of the citizens of Islamabad. It is hoped that some sense will eventually prevail. However, a very bad precedent is being set by the two parties in trying to change government through dharnas. What if all party heads decide to bring their respective supporters in front of parliament in support of the present democratic setup? I am sure they can manage many more supporters than the PAT and PTI.

Notwithstanding the above, there is a dire need to address some of the genuine issues like irregularities in the last election, an across the board accountability of all those involved in rigging and establishment of an independent Election Commission. At the moment there is a serious trust deficit between the protesters and the government. A guarantor is therefore required to ensure all these take place at the earliest.
