PAC is an important body in parliament: FM Qureshi
ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) is an important body in parliament and sudden reshuffling of its house leadership would impact parliamentary proceedings.
Addressing a press conference, FM Qureshi said that change of guard in the Pakistan Muslim League-N is their internal matter. However, when there is the talk of a change of Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly, this becomes a significant issue.
Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that the National Parliamentary Committee on National Security also has Shahbaz Sharif as its member. He said speculations are rising regarding the possibility of a deal by the PML-N.
The Foreign Minister questioned how Rana Tanveer Hussain could be head of PAC when it was already decided that leader of the opposition in the national assembly will take up this position. He asked if PML-N leadership will take parliament and nation into confidence regarding the changes in parliamentary leadership.
Shah Mehmood Qureshi expressed hope that answers to these questions will be given in the National Assembly.
