Prime Minister gets July 25 deadline to write letter to Swiss Authorities – Alfalah Securities Limited

Karachi, July 13, 2012 (PPI-OT): Supreme Court (SC) has given a deadline of July 25, 2012 to Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf to approach Swiss authorities to reopen graft cases against President Asif Ali Zardari.

According to Alfalah Securities Limited, in case of failing to meet deadline, the SC would initiate any appropriate action against the PM. The issue would initiate a new tug-of-war between the political government and the Judiciary. Alfalah Securities Limited believes, the government will try to gain time as much as possible till elections, however, any action like disqualification of PM, if taken by the Judiciary, would add to uncertainty in the current setup.
