Pakistan’s political scene is headed for further chaos as PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif warned the government to abide by Supreme Court’s contempt decision against Prime Minister Gilani. In case the Prime Minister does not resign, PML-N has threatened mass protests.
Nawaz Sharif called on the people to show the same zeal in restoring the rule of law, as shown during the movement to restore the judges in 2009.
“After restoring the judges, I thought that the law will prevail in the country but that did not happen. The Zardari government never accepted the law and refused to comply with the court orders,” Sharif complained.
He invited other political parties, including Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) and Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), to rise above political differences and participate in the movement. Moreover, PML-N will also approach the Election Commission to disqualify the Prime Minister in light of Supreme Courts decision.
