Opposition agrees to drop PM’s name from Panama Commission ToRs

ISLAMABAD: The joint opposition on Thursday agreed to drop name of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif from the ToRs for the proposed inquiry commission that would look into off-shore business interests of Pakistanis.

During the meeting of the bipartisan parliamentary committee, not only did the opposition give up its demand to include premier’s name in ToRs, but it also expressed willingness to overlook the gifts that he purportedly received during his stay in Saudi Arab after being deposed by military in 1999.

The previously divided opposition seemed to be on one page after revelations of Panama Papers, demanding resignation of the prime minister.

The PPP and the PTI had earlier rejected Nawaz Sharif’s proposal to hold an inquiry into the issue by a retired judge of the Supreme Court and when the government agreed to set up the judicial commission under the Chief Justice of Pakistan, it objected on the terms of references.
