ISLAMABAD: All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) Secretary General Barrister Muhammad Ali Saif said that the government should immediately announce an election schedule.

In a press statement from the  APML Central Secretariat on Thursday, he said that corruption during the rule of the Pakistan Peoples Party is unprecedented in the history of the country.  He added that the ruling alliance is only focused  on hiding their corruption and incapability.

Barrister Saif said that a prevailing confrontation between the government and judiciary is witness to the fact that the ruling alliance is only interested in prolonging their rule and protecting their assets in foreign countries.

He clarified that the APML will join a coalition only with those parties whose leadership is not corrupt.
