20th Amendment: People will be President’s slaves: Imthiaz

Opposition MP Imthiaz Bakeer Markar stated in Parliament yesterday (21) that the 20th Amendment to the Constitution will make members of society slaves of the President, and said it would evoke unpopularity from all over the world if such laws were enforced.

He urged all MPs to be accountable for the vote they are about to give, as it will affect social security and the democracy of the country.

Markar compared the 20th Amendment to a bomb that will detonate and destroy the freedom of the country.

He further focused on examples from world history where dictatorships and placing power on one person affected not only one country but the entire world.
