ISLAMABAD – Nawaz Sharif said all political parties had played a major role in preparation of the National Action Plan (NAP) for countering terrorism in the country, adding that everyone would want to see it coming to fruition.
“The time has come for a final decision to be made today. I am hopeful that this bill should be presented before Parliament today. There is no room for further debate on NAP,” Nawaz said, urging political leaders to finalise the draft for the amendment in the Constitution.
“The nation wants to see the National Action Plan in action,” the prime minister said while addressing an All Parties Conference at the PM House in Islamabad.
Further, the premier reiterated that the military courts would only be set up for two years.
Nawaz lauded the efforts made by the leadership of all political parties for being on the same page following the aftermath of the tragic attack on the Army Public School in Peshawar in which 150 people were killed.
“I am happy to announce that the day after the incident, on December 17, all political parties’ leaders were in Peshawar and on the same page,” he said.
“In that APC, we unanimously decided that a parliamentary committee will be made to take action after the horrific incident,” said the premier.
Earlier, copies of the constitutional amendment for establishing military courts in the country had been distributed amongst the participants of the MPC in order to get their feedback.
