Pakistan News 0 Comment 2

While many people predicted that the breakup of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) following the disqualification of premier Nawaz Sharif in the Panamagate case, it survived, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said on Saturday.

“It was predicted that the party would break into pieces [following the court verdict] and that its politicians would jump ship,” Abbasi told a gathering at New Jatoi in Naushero Feroz.

However, the PML-N accepted Supreme Court’s July 28 verdict in letter and spirit [and proved the predictions wrong], he added.

“A democratic system in the country will allow justice to prevail,” Abbasi said. “It was agreed upon in the Charter of Democracy to accept an elected representative as per the mandate of the masses, but that is not happening.”

He added: “I can only hope that the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) will review the terms of the agreement signed. We need to leave any revenge behind when it is about national politics.”

Abbasi said the country was facing challenges and needed to face them. “Pakistan defeated terrorism, something which the entire world couldn’t collectively achieve in Afghanistan,” he remarked.

The government, he continued, also initiated China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project, which is bound to strengthen the country and enable its development.

“There is a huge difference between what Karachi is today and what it was four years ago,” the premier said, adding that the “government and the security forces worked in unison to achieve this objective [of establishing peace in the metropolis].
