Fed govt plans changes to 18th amendment after two-third majority: Farogh Naseem
Web Desk On Nov 24, 2020 Last updated Nov 24, 2020


ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Law and Justice Dr. Farogh Naseem on Tuesday said that the incumbent government would make changes to some articles of the 18th constitutional amendment after acquiring a two-third majority, ARY NEWS reported.


“We do not have the numbers right now to carry out the amendments, however, whenever, we get them, we will make changes to some sections of the 18th constitutional amendment,” he said adding that some of the sections in the amendment were inappropriate.

Farogh Naseem blamed the PPP for bulldozing the Constitution approved during the tenure of its founder Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in 1973 after bringing the 18th amendment.

Even coalition partners of the incumbent government believe that some of the articles of the amendment are inappropriate while the others are better in terms of their implementation, he said.

It is not the first time that any government minister has spoken on amending the 18th amendment despite stiff resistance against any such move from the Pakistan People’s Party.

PML-N although has not supported major changes to the basic structure of the 18th amendment but showed a willingness to make changes after a consultative process.

PML-N leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi in May this year said that they were not ready to make any changes to the powers granted to the provinces under the 18th constitutional amendment.

“We could discuss everything other than reversing powers granted to the provinces under the amendment,” said Shahid Khaqan Abbasi while talking during ARY NEWS programme, Aietraz Hai.

“If the government wants any changes in the amendment, it should come up with a proposal rather than mere talks,” he said adding that any discussion on the matter would be held in the Parliament rather than behind closed doors.

removing 18 th amendment will make things worse for karachi in long run as center will not spend on karachi only on punjab where the vote bank is,
what we would need to do is, amended it so that center should be able to dictate devolution of power rather then provinces deciding it(& thus not doing it!)

Depends upon who is in center... Punjab gives huge chunk of GDP contrary to belief that 70% of GDP comes from Karachi but Karachi is a huge part of Pakistans economy and needs as much care as economic areas in Punjab and other economic areas...

Good, let's reverse the damage done to Pakistan by Zardari - Sharif gangsters.
Why is Zardari untouchable than?
BTW, Imran Khan has equal share in 18th amendment.
While in Punjab we see many projects on ground but we don't see anything on ground in Imran Khan ruled NWFP and Zardari ruled Sindh.
Here's the list of projects in Punjab, in past 5 years, which is definitely highest in all world. Still if the ruling mafia believes it's not enough than do whatever with the man, already in custody of Imran Khan police.

Are you sleeping in your cave. ? KP is building Universities, motorways and Dams (with capacity of upto 80 MW) all these things simultaneously. You just need to look more for KP in news.

Problem is that with the 18th amendment all share goes to respective proviancial governments in this case ppp and which is why things have gotten from bad to worse. Now in the long run it may turn out to be problematic however any federal government with a voter base from karachi such as this one will not forget karachi just to please Punjab. At least i hope so.
