No respect for those who disrespect the vote, says Nawaz


KOT MOMIN: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Quaid, Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday said that anyone who does not respect the people’s vote will not be respected in return.

Addressing party supporters in Sargodha, Nawaz declared that the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) decision to disallow the PML-N from contesting the Senate elections from the party’s platform amounts to rigging the polls.

“This is unfair. This is what’s being meted out to the largest political party in the country,” he bewailed, assuring his supporters that he is not one to be bogged down in politics, and asking them to take a vow of standing with him in his struggle for the country.

“They are trying to kick me out, but the people are bringing me back in,” he said, adding that “this is a fight for Pakistan’s survival, for your rights, and we will win this fight.”

“After removing me as PM, they didn’t stop there. They used the same reason to remove me from the PML-N’s presidency,” said Nawaz while commenting on the restriction placed on him by the Supreme Court from holding the party office.

“They don’t care about the millions of voters,” he told the public.

The former premier and PML-N president also stated that the petitioner, Imran Khan, himself had cast doubt over the verdict against him, saying it is weak. “Now, tell me, what is the worth of this judgement,” he said.

He further questioned the respect given to the people’s vote in Pakistan. “I have taken the first step, now you have to walk with me,” he urged his supporters.

Nawaz concluded by terming Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi as brilliant partners.


  1. It is this brainless foolish electorate that never tires of bringing crooks and thieves to power, unless crooks in politics, and bureaucracy are held to account and put behind bars by NAB and the judiciary, this stupid electorate will keep electing the same political crooks, who will keep empowering same crooks in bureaucracy to work against the interest of the state, this vicious circle will continue haunting Pakistan with out end. Politicians and their servile bureaucratic minions are a minor problem, the mother of all problems is this brain dead electorate of fools. Democracy was never meant for fools.

    • I agree. The best argument against democracy is a five minutes conversation with an average man in the street.Pakistan.s Foreign policy is a mess, the domestic policy is shambles. Just look at the ex PM who is leading the charge against the judiciary.Such an experienced politician and yet so flawed!.
