Islamabad: (Saturday, July 28, 2012) Farooq H Naek, the federal minister for Law, said here today that all the actions taken by the President, the Prime Minister and the ministers have complete constitutional immunity under article
242 of the constitution and that they cannot be challenged.

Talking to the journalists here outside the Sindh High Court, the federal minister said that nowhere in the contempt of court amendment it is written that the court’s decision is not binding on the Prime Minister or President.

Naek was of the view that the government respects judiciary, and it is not in favour of curtailing power of the same.

Talking about the matter pertinent to appointment of judges, the minister for law said that the bar councils and law ministry should also have a right to recommend names. He further said that there is a need to make the required
amendments in this regard.

Naek further said that they want clashes among the institutions, and if all three institutions would work within their parameter set by the constitutions, the democracy would not be deraild.
