ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi while lauding Nawaz Sharif’s term, said on Tuesday that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s manifesto is to complete the projects laid by the former prime minister.
The PM was addressing the PML-N general council session at Convention Centre Islamabad.
He said that former prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was hanged; however, to this day people do not accept the charges against him.
“The court gave a verdict against us on July 28 but history is a witness that no one accepted the verdict,” said the PM.
He said that in the next general elections after June, people will give a decision in favour of Nawaz Sharif.
Today, the PML-N has re-elected former prime minister Nawaz Sharif as the party’s president for a period of four years. Nawaz has been elected unopposed as no one else contested against him.
On Monday, the PML-N central working committee approved an amendment to the party’s constitution, paving Nawaz’s way to lead the party following his disqualification from the Supreme Court.
A controversial clause in the bill — which was heavily criticised by the opposition — allows politicians disqualified from holding public office to lead political parties.
