Former president and Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari said on Saturday that an empowered parliament can decide the future of the country and the nation and all democratic political parties should unite to empower the parliament.

In his message to the nation on Independence Day, he said that the supremacy of the elected parliament of the people is essential for a free, independent and dignified Pakistan.

The former president said that Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah laid the
foundation of Pakistan as an independent state. Quaid-e-Awam Shaheed
Zulfikar Ali Bhutto made Pakistan a strong and stable country by giving
it the unanimous 1973 constitution which is still a symbol of trust and
bond between all the units of the federation.

Asif Ali Zardari said that the dictators distorted the constitution for
power but failed. He said that only an empowered parliament can decide
the future of the country and the nation.

President Zardari said that Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto solidified
the the pact of unity and solidarity between the federation and all
units with her blood. He said that the 18th Amendment is the guarantee
of a strong and stable Pakistan.

Now, the time has come to make sustainable decisions for the country and
the nation by fully implementing the Charter of Democracy. All
democratic political parties of the country should unite to empower the
parliament.
