Pakistan Muslim League- Quaid (PML-Q) chief Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain said on Wednesday that he should be named as the caretaker prime minister, Express News reported on Wednesday.

Hussain made this statement while speaking to media.

Responding to a query on when will the name for the caretaker prime minister will be announced, Hussain said the name will be revealed soon after assemblies are dissolved.

Speaking about future electoral alliance with Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), the PML-Q leader said the number of seats to be adjusted between them has not yet been discussed.

Commenting on former president Pervez Musharraf’s plans of returning to Pakistan, Hussain said the former ruler has a Pakistani passport and can come back whenever he pleases.

“Musharraf, President Asif Ali Zardari and Nawaz Sharif are all great leaders,” Hussain added.

    Imagine him as PM (even a caretaker one)and delivering a lecture at a leaders summit, UN or even at a Harvard campus event. No wonder the world would think we deserve to be where we are.

    Why not; he is neutral (sic) and has been part of every ruling set up in past 14 years and ruined the country by his policies

    You have already been a care taker Prime Minister.

    Your nephew is now the Deputy Prime Minister.

    Now you want to again become care taker Prime Minister?

    With his awesome track record and charismatic personality there couldn’t be anyone better for the post of caretaker PM. By far the best speaker Pakistan has ever had! Let’s also make “Sufi” the Deputy Caretaker PM :)

    Chalo issi khushi wich roti shoti ho jaaye ;)

    “I should be nominated as caretaker PM” Translation: “I am low on funds for the next European vacation and that villa in Dubai, need some cash in the next two months”
