Dual office threat
ISLAMABAD: President Asif Ali Zardari indicated on Sunday that he was not worried about a recent decision of the Supreme Court barring the presidency from taking an active part in politics.
“The presidency has witnessed such tough times in the past as well,” he told a reporter after the inaugural ceremony of the conference of the Association of Saarc Speakers and Parliamentarians. The president did not elaborate and walked away reciting a famous verse: “Badalta hai rang aasman kaisay kaisay (how the sky turns its colours, taking on strange hues).”
He avoided a question about a new code of conduct for the next general elections issued by the Election Commission.
