Islamabad, May 29, 2012 (PPI-OT): Chairman Senate Syed Nayyer Hussain Bokhari has said that continuity of the system guarantees strengthening the roots of democracy and empowerment of the institutions as well as the people.
He observed that the present democratic government strongly believes in the supremacy of the constitution and rule of law. He expressed these views while talking to a delegation of National Youth Assembly at Parliament House today.
Chairman Senate mentioned that accountability and transparency are key factors to promote good governance and everybody is answerable to the Parliament which reflects aspirations of the people. He further said that the constitution of 1973 has defined role of each and every organ of the state.

In some parts of the world, the participation of youth in elections and political parties is declining and in some other countries youth is at the forefront of political reforms. Chairman Senate advised youth to take part in the political process because country needs young blood for steering out the country of all the problems.
