Article 6 can�t just apply to one man: Gilani

* PM says those who supported Musharraf are in cabinet and some of them have also joined PML-N
* Musharraf not given indemnity, convicted or pardoned, no question of deal

By Zulfiqar Ghuman

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said on Wednesday that Article 6 could not be applied to only one person, as there were several politicians in parliament who also supported former president Pervez Musharraf by voting for the 17th Amendment.

�I have no love lost for Musharraf ... if parliament decides to try him, I will be with parliament. Article 6 cannot be applied to one individual ... those who supported him are today in my cabinet and some of them have also joined the PML-N ... the MMA, the MQM and the PML-Q supported him ... this is why I have said that it is not doable,� said the prime minister while informally talking to editors and also replying to questions by journalists at an Iftar-dinner he had hosted for them.

On President Asif Zardari�s disclosure about a �negotiated settlement�, he said, �Parliament has so far not given indemnity to Musharraf, nor has he been convicted or pardoned, so there is no question of any deal.�

About the balance of power between the offices of president and prime minister, Gilani said, �If you refer to Article 58(2b), let me tell you that this article has become redundant ... a parliamentary committee is working on the constitutional package.�
