ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Thursday said that the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) will take part on the upcoming general elections despite the aliens not the caretaker government would hold elections.
Talking to media at the farewell ceremony hosted by National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq, he said that the caretaker prime minister isn’t that important position than we have made.
Abbasi said that the ruling party would compromise with the opposition on the caretaker PM’s names, adding that whatever name Leader of Opposition Syed Khursheed Shah would propose, they will support.
The prime minister said that the name of any retired personality could also be considered, however, the name of any retired general wasn’t considered.
Repeating former prime minister and PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif’s wording, he said that the aliens not the caretaker government would hold general elections but they would still take part.
Abbasi also hoped that the elections would be free and fair.
He further apologized following the torture on journalist by the Islamabad police.
