Order of business

  Sajjad Karim (ECR). – Mr President, some days ago we all received the wonderful news about the Supreme Court’s verdicts as far as the case of Asia Bibi was concerned. Indeed, you made an interaction on behalf of this whole House in a very timely way and in a very constructive way. Bearing in mind that the proceedings are at such a sensitive stage within Pakistan at this moment in time, I really make a request to colleagues to allow for the matter at this stage to remain in our President’s hands, because this House is standing completely unified behind the President at this stage, and if we are to have a debate on this at such a sensitive time, it may be that we in some way end up compromising Asia Bibi’s situation. So, I call on colleagues: let’s stand united behind our President and allow him to make representations on our behalf at this stage.
