Logrolling in Pakistan?

A party leader in Pakistan has said his party will go along with revival of the 21st Amendment military courts in the interest of making it unanimous and if references to "religion" and "sect" are deleted. Now  comes the interesting part: in nearly the same breath this party leader said "the federal government had also agreed on bringing the tribal areas into the mainstream after five years and the party would withdraw the demand of referendum to decide the future status of Fata only in national interest." Was this party bought off with a promise on an unrelated issue?
