Rejecting the call for snap polls by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Nawaz Sharif, Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani on Thursday said elections would be held on time despite the opposition’s call, which was the only party calling for early polls.
Talking to reporters during his visit to a Utility Store, the prime minister expressed concern over Nawaz’s statement in which he had warned that no institution should send the government packing. “Nawaz Sharif has been talking about elections since the PPP came into power,” he said, adding that the federal and provincial governments had come into power through elections and “we will also go through the electoral process”.
“Let me tell you that all state institutions are working within their constitutional ambits and are following democratic norms and processes. I am not aware which institution Nawaz Sharif is talking about,” Gilani said, while advising the PML-N chief that the state institutions should not be dragged into political affairs. Talking about the unrest in Karachi, he said he had talked to the Sindh governor and the chief minister and had also been briefed by Interior Minister Rehman Malik and the Sindh inspector general of police on law and order in Karachi.
Gilani said he had talked to MQM chief Altaf Hussain and consultations were directed towards bringing normalcy to the troubled city.

  1. PM Gilani is lucky to get premeirship through his master Zardari. Which state institutions are working within their constitutional ambits and are following democratic norms and processes. PPP governmant is at odds with judiciary, hundreds are dying in Karachi, corruption is rampant and the only action is meetings among PPPand MQM, not for the progress of the country, but keeping the inept government in tact. What a great democracy.

  2. The PM is right, there should be no snap polls, after all there's just SO MUCH corruption left to indulge in !! Time is of the essence !! Lage raho…

  3. WHY NOT? AND LET COUNTRY GO TO SINK IN YOUR HANDS AND OF ZARDARI,MQM,ANP,MLCHOUDRY.YOU HAVE RUINED COUNTRY AND POOR TO PIECES.YOU SHOULD BE INFACT SNAPPED EVEN WITHIOUT ANTY ELECTION.PPP-Z,SHOULD BE REMOVED AND MQM,MLC,ANP WHO HAVE CREATED HELL IN COUNTRY IN LAST 45 MONTHS.GOD SEND HELL TO TYRANTS AND FORGU=IVE FOR VOTING PUTRIFIED PEOPLE.

  4. Mr. Nawaz Sharif is asking for snap polls but let me predict here that there won't be any election but selection and thus a "Technocratic" government will be formed due to the leg pulling by our politicians and some state and non state actors not allowing the government to function properly. If both politicians and religious parties are really serious for democracy to flourish in our country then allow this government to complete its tenure and wait for their turn. There is no need to create anarchy in the country for petty gains. All must behave like democrats or face an Incoming Train from the end of the tunnel with full speed.
