Federal Minister for Education Mr. Ahsan Iqbal, a very prominent leader of PML-N has expressed his apprehensions over the future of Murree Declaration, as Pakistan People’s Party is still unsure about the restoration of judges and even there are rifts appearing in the distribution of ministries in the Punjab Assembly.
Even before the elections the stance of PPP was not so sure about the reinstatement of the judiciary, and they were never very fond of deposed Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhary. When Benazir Bhutto was alive, in her deal with President Musharraf, Justice Iftikhar was nowhere to be seen, and the judiciary was a non-issue, as Benazir always thought it as a Kangaroo Court, and she thought that as Justice Iftikhar was also a PCO-ed judge, so nothing would be changed if he was not reinstated.
While PML-N has always rallied behind the judges and their anti-Musharraf campaign has always revolved around this point, and they have got their votes from the urban areas on this crunch point, and they cannot back track from it.
This is the point where coalition of PDA could go awry.
