Karachi, Jan.2 (ANI): Ruling out any confrontation between the state institutions, Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari has said that the appointment of the Naval and Air chiefs were done by Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani on merit, and that he will continue to make military appointments in future also.

In an interview with a private television channel, Zardari described Gilani as an 'exemplary' Prime Minister and said that a good government could compromise its popularity but it would never harm the country.

"As the party's co-chairman, I am accountable to the Parliament too," The News quoted Zardari, as saying.

Zardari said he would definitely contest the next general elections in line with former Prime Minister Benazir Bhuto's visions.

Criticising the Pakistan Muslim League-N for weakening the government by pulling out its Ministers from the Federal Cabinet, he said the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) never tried to destabilise the Punjab government.

Zardari said that he was elected as President by winning two-thirds majority vote though the PML-N had fielded its candidate against him in the House. (ANI)
