The PMLN Chief, Mian Nawaz Sharif, has asked the Prime Minister to resign from office in the wake of Supreme Court’s verdict that found him guilty for contempt of court, today on Thursday.
Speaking to a private tv channel, Nawaz said, “The prime minister should immediately resign. He should step down without causing further crisis.”
Pointing out the urgent need to hold fresh elections in the country, he said, “It must have punished the prime minister with a heavy heart, but the prime minister himself is to be blamed.”
“The prime minister himself invited this situation,” he added.
The Supreme Court convicted Gilani on the charges of contempt of court for refusing to write the letter to Swiss courts. However, the court announced a minimal sentence of “imprisonment till the rising of the court today.”
