Islamabad, June 23: South Asia Democracy Watch (SADeW), a US based group that reviews and updates democratic trends in South Asia, has expressed concerns over the ruling that ousted Pakistan Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani.
According to The News, the review report claimed that community leaders from all sections of society in the group have complimented the political parties in the ruling coalition for a well thought out and deliberated response to the judicial verdict following democratic norms in the country and containing the system smoothly.
The report cited that any demand to oust the current government should come from the elected parliament and not from the parties protesting on the street, while all traditions, legalities, and parliamentary rules should be observed in proposing any change in the current political set up in Pakistan.
The group reiterated that democracy is taking roots in Pakistan and the trend should be continued to ensure stability, peace and progress of the people of South Asia.
The SADeW statement was endorsed by many scholars, political activists and community leaders in Pakistan. (ANI)
