ISLAMABAD: PML-N leaders say Nawaz Sharif was disqualified not for committing any corruption but on the basis of not accepting money from his son.
Addressing a joint news conference in Islamabad on Friday evening, Khawaja Saad Rafiq said we want civilian supremacy in the country.
He said it is unfortunate that elected prime ministers have never been allowed to complete their constitutional tenure in Pakistan.
He said Nawaz Sharif was punished for revamping the country’s economy, restoring order in Karachi, bringing the people of Balochistan to national fold, and making Pakistan a nuclear power.
Barrister Zafarullah said requirements of justice have not been fulfilled in the Supreme Court judgement to disqualify an elected prime minister.
Ahsan Iqbal said Nawaz Sharif will continue leading PML-N to make Pakistan a real democracy. He said Nawaz Sharif was disqualified on the basis of heresy instead of in light of solid evidence.
He said PML-N workers should be proud of their leader as no corruption has been proved against him even in a minutely held accountability.
Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said we will challenge the verdict legally and constitutionally.
He said PML-N will keep facts before the people of Pakistan.
