Government will be ousted within 3-4 months, claims Zardari


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari on Monday said that the incumbent government has limited time left as it would be sent packing within three to four months.

He said this while talking to journalists at Parliament House. The former president said that it would take three to four months to topple the incumbent government and once that is done, “a civilian government will take charge of the country”.

“The future belongs to Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and Maryam Nawaz,” he said.

When asked about the controversial video of Accountability Court (AC) Judge Arshad Malik, the PPP co-chairman said that he had no knowledge of any such video as he does not have access to television in the custody of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

He also expressed concerns over the health of former premier Nawaz Sharif. “I have been saying since day one that Nawaz is not well. They should declare his house a sub-jail where he can serve the rest of his prison sentence,” he added.

The former president also slammed the National Assembly (NA) speaker for not issuing the production orders of lawmakers under the custody of institutions. “It is against parliamentary ethics to deprive a lawmaker from attending the parliamentary session,” he said.
