Senators call for across the board accountability

ISLAMABAD: Senators representing different parties have called for an across the board accountability system which should include keeping a check on judges and military personnel.

On first day of opposition-requisitioned session, senators came down hard on the ruling party particularly former prime minister Nawaz Sharif who was disqualified by the Supreme Court late last month.

Senate debated on measures to combat corruption, with focus on offshore companies, across the board accountability and a new accountability mechanism.

Taking part in the discussion PPP’s Farhatullah Babar said that a historic opportunity had presented itself before the bipartisan Parliamentary Committee on Accountability comprising members from both treasury and opposition benches to call a spade a spade and make anti-corruption legislation that applied to all strata of society.
