Karachi, February 24, 2015 (PPI-OT): Pakistan Peoples Party’s Vice President Sherry Rehman has said that the PPP stands against horse trading in every sense and welcome cooperation to strengthen democracy but a constitutional amendment at this stage is not possible after announcement of poll schedule.
In a statement issued here on Tuesday, she opined that neither can the Senate’s procedure of single transferrable vote on a proportional basis be open in a system that often requires 2, 3 even 4 rounds. “Also Shaheed Zulifkar Ali Bhutto’s constitution guaranteed sanctity of secret ballot; if the government needs a reform package we are happy to talk of broad electoral reform package,” Sherry Rehman added.
