ISLAMABAD: Elderly leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Maryam Nawaz said on Thursday she felt justified as she was not part of the regulations that enabled expansion in the tenure of Chief of the Army Staff.
Talking with Dawn before appearing for a hearing in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on her appeal against sentence in the Avenfield residential properties reference, Ms Nawaz termed “inappropriate” the unsupported claims of government ministers who have actually looked for to do away with the role of leader of the opposition in the appointment or expansion of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman.
” They want to stay out the opposition in NAB’s appointment (in order) to accommodate their siblings at the top blog posts in NAB,” she said.
She was evidently referring to the recent visit of a federal priest’s sibling to a senior position in the prosecution wing of the anti-corruption guard dog.
She, however, said the PML-N would offer its response when the government would ultimately transfer to prolong the period of incumbent NAB chairman retired Justice Javed Iqbal.
The daughter of PML-N’s supreme leader Nawaz Sharif characterised the electronic voting machines (EVMs) as a “device that would be used to rig the following general political elections”.
” The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) has shed public support, which is evident from their continuous beats in the by-elections,” she claimed.
The federal government is attempting to paint a rosy picture by corresponding EVMs with clear and reasonable political elections even though “this federal government has nothing to do with openness as well as justness”, she stated.
The PTI government, she kept, had come a cropper to supply on the power, economic situation as well as polite fronts. “They have actually fallen short to control rising cost of living, loadshedding, rates of power, edible products and also petroleum items as well as in creating an effective foreign policy,” she claimed.
” For these reasons, they are once again planning to swipe the required with unfair means and rigging.”
During court proceedings, the PML-N leader educated the IHC’s department bench comprising Justice Aamer Farooq and also Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani that she had actually involved Advocate Irfan Qadir, who looked for time from the court to prepare himself. The court adjourned the hearing till October 6.
Talking with reporters after the hearing, she claimed the government, in order to hide its failures, was scapegoating numerous establishments. Some preachers recently assaulted the Political election Commission of Pakistan.
” It is a worst-ever humiliation for any kind of Pakistani ruler since over 7 years when a tv network like CNN claims that Imran Khan’s condition is not greater than of a mayor,” Ms Nawaz stated.
The head of state, she said, is differing his earlier stance on accountability. After comparing the conduct of past leaders with that Hazrat Umar he himself is concealing the presents he obtained from the Toshakhana.
Ms Nawaz stated that Mr Khan utilized to claim that the hike in the rates of flour, fuel and electricity was because of the corruption of succeeding prime ministers. “He is a licensed thief according to his past assertions.”
In feedback to a concern concerning the show-cause notice issued to MNA Mian Javed Latif for hurling accusations that some PML-N leaders were “dealing with job”, she said that Mr Latif is a staunch fan of Mr Sharif and that her party’s management will certainly choose his destiny after examination of his reply.
