Former SC judges to meet Bhutto Jalil Afridi

November 30, 2007

LAHORE: According to reliable sources it has been learned that some of the former judges of the Supreme Court who refused to take oath under the Provisional Constitutional Order (PCO) are planning to meet former Prime Minister, Benazir Bhutto and will try to convince her to boycott the coming elections.

These judges believe that there are clear indications that the elections will be rigged therefore there is no point of participating in the elections and this is the point upon which these judges are planning to convince Benazir Bhutto that instead of making hue and cry after the elections it would be better for her not to participate in the elections in first place.

Benazir Bhutto, Maulana Fazl Ur Rehman are among the two top leaders who did not participate in the All Parties Democratic Movement (APDM) meeting held in Lahore, which means that they are planning not to boycott the elections.

Awami National Party (ANP) leader Ghulan Bilour was present in the meeting of APDM but general secretary ANP, Zahid Hussain said that regarding the boycott of elections, ANP will make the final decision after fifteen days.

It is not learnt whether these former judges of Supreme Court are planning to convince JUI (F) leader, Maulana Fazl Ur Rehman and ANP leader Asfandyar Wali Khan.

But with regard to Benazir Bhutto, it is clear that either these judges will be meeting Benazir Bhutto late Friday night or today.
