Nawaz Sharif rules out prospects of mid-term polls in Pak
Peshawar: Former Pakistan prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif has ruled out the prospect of mid-term polls in the country.
Talking to reporters after a meeting of the party’s provincial council here, Sharif said his party believes that the government should serve the people and honour the people’s mandate.
Sharif called on the government to ensure good governance and strengthen democracy.
He described unemployment, price hike and the deteriorating law and order situation as core issues confronting the government, which needed immediate attention.
Sharif also criticised the government for allowing the US to continue with the drone attacks, which he said, have killed mostly innocent civilians.
“On one hand the government has given a free hand to the United States for carrying out drone attacks and on the other it is opposing the strikes in the media,” The Dawn quoted Sharif, as saying.
Responding to a question regarding the now defunct National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO), Sharif said it was a dictator’s gift that benefited influential people.
“The PML-N had always opposed it and demands accountability of those who had plundered the national wealth,” he added.
