Islamabad, Aug 4 (ANI): Hailing the Supreme Court (SC) verdict against the November 3, 2007 emergency, Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani informed the National Assembly in his policy statement that it would help block military interventions in the future.
"The judgement has upheld the supremacy of parliament and has given full credit to present democratic government's stance," Gilani said on Monday.
"The SC judgement would go a long way towards strengthening democratic institutions and block any unconstitutional usurpation of the people's rights of governance," he added.
Gilani said the verdict had also amended the 'Code of Conduct' for judges, notifying that any judge validating the unconstitutional acts of usurpers would be liable for misconduct.
"Thus it is heartening that facilitators would also be collaborators, and disrupting constitutional rule and democratic dispensation would be punishable in future," he said. (ANI)
