Entry of Bilawal and Zardari in the Parliament


In a democratic dispensation, the parliament is the most powerful and supreme authority. People choose their representatives who in turn, expect to represent the issues, concerns and opinion of the people. The laws, amendment in the constitution, resolutions and debates are the common components of the sovereign parliament. 

The government shares its policy statement and future line of action. Whereas, opposition parties locate weakness of the government and helping the government to collectively solve the problems.

PPP, being the mainstream political party of Pakistan have decided to introduce its chairman, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari in the parliament together with his father, Asif Ali Zardari. The young leader of PPP has so far restricted himself to the speeches and public gatherings.

On the 9th death anniversary of the former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, PPP leadership have, to a greater extent surprised political analyst, rivals and supporters of PPP in particular when announced a new entry into the parliament.

Many believe that it is a healthy sign and will strengthen democracy when Bilawal will lead the opposition parties to give a tough time to what he termed Raiwand Empire.

On the other hand, Bilawal’s four demands couldn’t get much attention of the center. The PPP’s four demands include the appointment of a full-fledged foreign minister, the formation of a parliamentary committee on national security, the passage of the opposition’s bill seeking investigation into the Panamagate scam and implementation of the resolution passed during a multi-party conference on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) held in May last year.

PMLN government did not even try to engage PPP for its four demands. it must be said that negotiations and talks reflect the true picture of the political structure of any country. Unfortunately, power centers here do not follow such discipline.

Bilawal, further added, that PPP will organize public rallies and mobilize people against the ruling party. He believes that the vacuum provided by PPP and filled by PTI in Punjab can only be gotten back if PPP performs well in Sindh. Seemingly, change of faces and structural reforms in Sindh will likely to benefit PPP in the upcoming general elections in 2018.
