We will not stand for elections being postponed, says Nawaz


Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Nawaz Sharif on Saturday said that his party would not allow postponement of the general elections.
Speaking at a ceremony, he said that he played his role to improve the system by tolerating these five years.
“Pakistan has an independent Election Commission for the first time. All parties have expressed their confidence in the commission,” he said.
He urged President Asif Ali Zardari to play his constitutional role, warning that if the president did not do so, he would make himself controversial.
“My nomination papers were rejected due to the NRO. However, we still won in Punjab. People want elections to bring change to the status quo,” he said.
He further said that the dissolution of his two governments had put the country through severe economic crisis, adding that if he had been allowed to complete his terms, the Pakistan would have become an “Asian Tiger”.
Moreover, he said that after coming to power after the next general elections, PML-N would construct a motorway from Khyber to Karachi to link Pakistan with mineral-rich Central Asia.
He further claimed that his government would run a bullet train from Peshawar to Karachi to put the country on path of progress and prosperity.
The PML-N leader alleged that the present government had failed to resolve the people’s problems due to bad policies and self-serving interests.
Furthermore, Nawaz said that the country was passing through a critical juncture.
“Today, people are facing suicide attacks, bomb blasts, unemployment, price hike and other problems, while the rulers are busy saving their positions,” he said.
