ISLAMABAD: PTI Senior Vice President Fawad Chaudhry told the Supreme Court on Thursday it should not “give lectures” to the parties on political systems.

In a tweet, the PTI leader said the SC should focus on its “primary job”, which is to safeguard fundamental rights of the people, and not give lectures on politics. “Performance of courts in this area is abysmal, let’s not give us bhashan [lectures] on political systems,” the former federal minister said.

He added it is the people’s job to change the political system of the country.

The minister was responding to a journalist’s tweet. The tweet mentioned that the SC had said a parliamentary form of government is one of the “salient features of the Constitution” and it could not be amended through an amendment. The journalists had responded to a tweet, which quoted PTI Chairman Imran Khan as saying that “parliamentary democracy can only work in Anglo-Saxon countries”.
