Zardari’s historic address to joint session today

Staff ReportISLAMABAD: President Asif Ali Zardari is going to address joint session o the Parliament today (Saturday), with opposition parties planning to boycott his speech.Delivering his speech, Zardari will become the first head of state to address to a joint sitting of the National Assembly and Senate for the fifth time.The Presidency has successfully persuaded PPP-led government’s ally, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement, to withdraw its decision to boycott the presidential address against government’s ‘failure’ to curb extortionist mafia in Karachi.After an overnight telephonic conversation between President Zardari and Altaf Hussain, the latter’s party announced through the statement of its coordination committee that they would now participate in the joint Parliament Session. On the other hand, PML-N’s leader of the opposition in National Assembly Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan held a meeting with leader of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F), Abdul Ghafoor Haidri, and another leader of the PML-N, Senator Ishaq Dar, made contacts with Sherpao, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Hasil Bazanjjo and the leaders of like-minded parties to persuade them to boycott the Saturday’s session.The one-day joint sitting meets a constitutional obligation for the presidential address at the start of a new parliamentary year.
