ISLAMABAD (92 News) - The United Nations Human Rights Watch has appealed to the Pakistan government to give permission for voting for the no-confidence motion without threats or violence.

In a statement on Thursday, Human Rights Watch Associate Director Patricia Gossman said that it was reponsibility of the government to follow the constitution of the country. "The government and opposition should not sabotage democratic procedures."

She said that the government and the opposition should give a message to their supporters that they should not sabotage democratic procedures. “The government and the opposition should tell their supporters do not malign vote with violence and criminal activities. Parlimentary voting is the basic principle of democracy,” she maintained.

She feared that the stage for violence and riots had been staged. “Efforts for stopping this would be more dangerous for such an institution which plays an important for rule of law and the government,” she concluded.
