Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani on Sunday evaded a question over the immunity enjoys President Asif Ali Zardari, saying ‘the case is in the court.’ “I will not comment over president’s immunity. It’s under hearing in the court…no one should be a judge in this issue,” said Gilani while replying to a question in a chat with mediamen after visiting Sunday Bazaar at Aabpara. Gilani on Friday said in the Senate that parliament had given powers to institutions, including immunity to the president, through the Constitution and only it could withdraw these. “We fully respect courts and will implement their verdicts, but there is a need that all institutions work within their constitutional limits,” he said, adding that the president was supreme commander of the armed forces and since immunity to him had been given by parliament under Article 248 of the Constitution, only it could revoke the immunity. PM Gilani said that Pakistan is facing tough times, and that the economic stability was associated with country’s political stability.
