LAHORE: Amid attacks from her opponents, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Information Secretary Maryam Aurangzeb has said that her party’s political rivals may see Nawaz Sharif become the prime minister after the February 8 elections.
Addressing a press conference in Lahore on Sunday, the former federal minister said that the PML-N manifesto will be a relief to the people.
“We have to rise above our personal interests. Maryam said, our political rivals can also see that Nawaz Sharif will become the next prime minister.
Talking about Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari’s recent statement on elections, the PML-N leader said his statement on transparent elections was “encouraging”.
Zardari said in a statement today that he believed the country was moving towards transparent elections and described the current environment as “conducive” for elections.
He said, “The country is moving towards transparent elections.”
The senior politician also expressed confidence in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to ensure fair and transparent conduct of the elections to be held on February 8 next year.
“We are not worried about any words or taunts to provide relief to the people,” Maryam said during the press conference. He also said that his party had started its political campaign with the arrival of party supremo Nawaz Sharif on October 21.
Talking about the acquittal of his party president Shehbaz Sharif in the Ashiana-e-Iqbal housing scheme case by the Lahore accountability court, the PML-N leader said the former prime minister has once again been proved innocent.
Maryam said that Shahbaz showed loyalty to his brother and was accused of corruption in 56 companies. He also said that he was accused of causing billions of losses to the treasury.
The former minister said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan was imposed on the country due to the deliberate failure of the Result Broadcast System, or RTS, in the 2018 elections.
“Today’s youth should know what kind of game was played and how people had to suffer because of it,” the PML-N leader said. He said a “game” was played with the opposition and the justice system for five to six years.
Pakistan, after five tumultuous years, is approaching one of the most important general elections in its history, scheduled to be held on February 8 next year.
Maryam’s claims regarding the opposition at the press conference came amid allegations from the PPP and PTI that there was a lack of level playing field.
The ongoing discussion regarding lack of level playing field has raised questions on the transparency and fairness of the upcoming elections.
PTI and PPP have been repeatedly complaining that they are not being given a level playing field before the elections and efforts are being made to pave the way for the return of PML-N to power before the general elections.
PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari complained earlier this week that his party never got a level playing field. The party has consistently raised concerns about the lack of equal opportunities to prove itself before the elections.
Meanwhile, amid reports of Imran Khan being in a minus in the elections, PTI has also accused the caretaker government of denying level playing field. With elections approaching, the PTI chairman is behind bars in Adiala jail and the party leadership claims he is not allowed to campaign.
It is to be noted that a day after the above date was unanimously agreed upon during a meeting of President Arif Alvi and Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja, on November 3, the Supreme Court ordered the government to ensure general elections on February 8.
