Haji Adeel, a central leader of the govt allied ANP, presented the party’s posture when he was approached by President Asif Ali Zardari.

Adeel said, “If such laws aren’t imposed, then people like Mansoor Ijaz can also become the president of Pakistan one day.” Earlier on Wednesday, the federal cabinet had authorized amendment bills pertaining to dual nationality and contempt of court regulations.

It’s ordered in the cabinet session that the dual nationality amendment bill be brought before the National Assembly for debate and permission.
