LAHORE (Dunya News) – Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice president Maryam Nawaz on Tuesday has said that her party leader Pervaiz Rashid is not an individual but an ideology.

While responding to the decision of Election Tribunal, the PML-N leader took to social-networking website Twitter and posted that Pervaiz Rashid is the bright symbol of democracy.

Such leaders always live. He will continue to be ex-Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s trustworthy companion, she added. 

The reaction came after Lahore High Court’s (LHC) Election Tribunal had upheld the decision of returning officer and disqualified Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) candidate Pervaiz Rashid from participating in the Senate polls.
