Nawaz advices government to hold early elections

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif on Friday said that the government should hold general elections as early as possible in order to avoid ‘mishap’ in the country, DawnNews reported.

Sharif said that coalition partners of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) government were equally responsible for the crisis in the country.

“Wisdom demands that the PPP seek a fresh mandate because it is the only way to wriggle out from the morass they find themselves in,” the former prime minister said.

“Government is sinking… will not be able to save themselves as well…,” said the PML-N chief.

Sharif said that PML-Q chief Shujaat Hussain should talk clearly about holding the elections earlier than scheduled rather than using a vague language about it.

The party chief advised government not to choose the path of collision and comply with apex court’s verdicts.

The PML-N chief said that his party does not support martial laws. “It would be sensible that it (coup) not be given a chance,” he added.

He warned the government that if it tried to complete its tenure ignoring ground realities and refusing to bring good governance, the economic and political situation would deteriorate further. DAWN
