Columnist Jamal A'mer says in his article this week that it may have become certain that the pardon decision by the president was nor a result of a deal with any of those concerned including the YSP's leaders who same as others were surprised with its announcement. The decision is a product of very peculiar internal circumstances and also aimed at burning a card that can be used abroad. Among the consequences of the decision is that a political party like the Islah has issued a statement that is considered ahead of the attitude of the YSP party itself. It is undeniable that I have appreciated the good deed of the president who realizes very well the amount of benefiting from it. But I cannot find an explanation to the reason why in the quest to normalize the political life the decision is not followed with others relevant to it regarding the YSP properties and offices and funds. Such decisions are less difficult for implementation. We should not forget the importance that the decision should be considered a true and sincere prelude to conciliation with the people who expects to be given attention and delivered from their misery, poverty and hunger by dealing a fierce hit to corruption. The president alone is the capable o giving the decision a passport for a more secure and stable future.
