ISLAMABAD: Having just completed four years in office, Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani said that he half expected Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz chairperson and “Charter of Democracy” cosignatory to congratulate the Premier.
“He did not congratulate us,” a semi-dejected Gilani told media while attending a wedding reception.
“If we had been a failure at governance, we would not have completed four years in office,” the Multan native pointed.
“I respect him a lot, but I want to remind him that there will never be a single majority party in the future,” he said, adding “they will need the support of my coalition partners in the future to form a government, so he should maintain good relations with all parties.”
Regarding remarks of Sharif on how Gilani should treat the Supreme Court, the Prime Minister retorted, “he talks of the judiciary, we all know how much respect he showed the superior judiciary, we will show more respect.”
