The people will decide through their vote [in general elections of 2018] who is qualified and who is unqualified,” he said. While paying tribute to lawmakers who passed Electoral Reforms Bill 2017, Sharif said that he is giving this black law back to former military ruler General (r) Pervez Musharraf today who introduced it to curtail his entrance in politics.
“I served nation cordially”, he said while adding that, “I was ousted merely on basis of Iqama as no wrongdoing was found in Panamagate”. Nawaz stated that he was ousted over not receiving salary from his son.
He apprised attendants that 12 questions posed during lawyers’ convention in Lahore remained unanswered.
