PML-N will not support flouting of the constitution: Nawaz

Addressing a session of PML-N's central working and parliamentary committees, he said party wants only rule of law.


Express January 12, 2012

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Chief Nawaz Sharif has said that he wants to see democracy flourish and will never support any unconstitutional measures.

A session of the PML-N’s central working and parliamentary committees is underway at the Punjab House in Islamabad. Participants at the meeting are discussing the political situation in the country in the wake of the government’s refusal to implement the Supreme Court’s verdict on the National Reconciliation Ordinance.

Speaking at the session, Nawaz said that the situation could have been markedly different if the government had followed the Charter of Democracy and made a commission according to that agreement.

“We want the rule of law. The country cannot afford adventurism,” he said. “The rulers have set aside the people’s problems. Had they been sincere with and serious about their work, a number of energy projects would have been completed by now.”

Nawaz, speaking to reporters after a party meeting at Raiwind on Wednesday, had called for early elections amid severe criticism of the government. He had said that the party would establish contacts with opposition parties and coalition members and ask them to be mindful of the country’s precarious situation before putting faith in the government.

There is no threat to constitution. Army Chief has repeatedly said that he will continue supporting democracy. The Chief Justice Of Pakistan has repeatedly said that the days of Martial Law are gone. But this naive politician has nothing else to say.
