Former president and Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari on Monday said that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman should appear before the National Assembly to answer questions.
Speaking in the National Assembly, he said that his party will continue work for strengthening of democracy and supremacy of the parliament.
The PPP co-chairman said that the members of parliament have a key role to strengthen this august institution.
He suggested that if there is a case against any parliamentarian, it should be taken first at the level of National Assembly and then moved to the relevant investigation agency.
Zardari said he was hearing of plans among various parties to call on the NAB chairman, purportedly to discuss the bureau s anti-corruption drive. "Why will you go to the NAB chairman?" he asked the MNAs present, before declaring: "The NAB chairman should appear in person before the parliament."
