Every democratic government has right to complete its constitutional tenure: Pervez


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Senator Pervez Rashid said that every democratic government had the right to complete its constitutional tenure and a democratic system was the only solution to all the problems of the country.

Talking to a private news channel, he said that PML-N was ready for elections and it would win the 2018 general elections due to its five-year performance.

He said that political parties always formulated their policies as per the aspirations of the masses.

The senator said that the PML-N leadership had never adopted a confrontation policy against any national institution, and added that Nawaz Sharif had always respected the judiciary and implemented its decisions but showing reservations on the decisions of courts was his constitutional right.

He said that PML-N was in favour of accountability but it should be across the board and without any discrimination. Nawaz Sharif was regularly appearing before the courts which proved that he respected the judiciary, he added.

Pervez Rashid said that Nawaz Sharif’s name was not mentioned in Panama Papers and not a single corruption case was proved against him, but he was disqualified for having an iqama.

He said that some people did not like popular political leadership in the country and efforts were being made to defame PML-N before the 2018 general elections.

Nawaz Sharif had adopted a narrative after July 28 and people were supporting his narrative and results of by-elections were the visible poof in this regard.

To another query, he said that Maryam Nawaz was never interested in any party position and she was working for the betterment of the party.

He said that the deprivation of provinces was removed after the passage of 18th amendment in the constitution.
