‘Coalition to ensure independence of judiciary’

ISLAMABAD: PML-N MNA Tehmina Daultana here on Monday said the PPP and the PML-N-led coalition would ensure the independence of judiciary, supremacy of parliament and the freedom of media to transform the country into a social welfare state.

She said that her party contested the elections on the basis of the restoration of judges, freedom of speech and welfare of the masses, adding the new set-up will face the challenges of law and order, poverty and unemployment. “Measures will be taken to face these challanges while adopting prudent and people-friendly policies.”

Commenting on the policies of the previous government, she said successful policies would be reviewed and further strengthened for the provision of relief to common man while new policies would be introduced in the forthcoming budget.

She reiterated that the freedom of media would be ensured while private channels would be brought at par with the official channel by allowing them the facilities like coverage of parliament activities.
