IPP hails SC’s landmark decision as a victory for democracy



The Central Secretary Information of the Istehkam-e-Pakistan Party (IPP), Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan, has hailed the Supreme Court’s landmark decision to strike down the lifelong disqualification of political leaders as an important victory for democracy.

In a statement released shortly after the verdict, Dr. Awan expressed her party’s strong support for the ruling, emphasizing its potential to restore fairness and inclusivity to the political landscape.

Dr. Awan asserted that the ban on disqualifying political leaders from candidacy was an undemocratic act, emphasizing that the access of political representatives to the Parliament floor stands as their fundamental democratic right.

She expressed contentment that the court’s decision has reinstated this essential democratic privilege to political leaders, ensuring their participation in the democratic process.

Praising the leadership of Jahangir Khan Tareen, Dr. Awan highlighted his role as a leader of the people, indicating that the court’s decision has effectively restored the representation of the public in political leadership.

She further conveyed optimism about the future, indicating a positive turn for politics that were previously criticized for being narrow-minded or biased.

Dr. Awan symbolically described IPP as the Shaheen, signifying its potential to soar higher now that restrictions have been lifted. Additionally, she attributed the success of this “Shaheen” to Chairman Jahangir Khan Tareen and President Abdul Aleem Khan, referring to them as the two sons of this soaring bird.

On behalf of IPP, Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan extended congratulations to everyone on what she perceived as a victory for democracy in the country. The court’s decision has not only impacted individual political figures but is being seen as a broader triumph for democratic principles within the nation.
