Shehbaz Sharif expects institutions to ensure free, fair polls in 2023

RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN) President Shehbaz Sharif Sunday claimed that his party would “bury the PTI forever” in the 2023 general election.

Addressing a party workers’ convention here, he said: “I want to make it clear that we will bury the PTI forever if general elections are held in fair and transparent manner. “Our success in the cantonment boards elections is not ordinary,” he said and added that the PMLN performed even better in Rawalpindi than Lahore, a city considered to be their stronghold. “We rather wiped out the PTI in Rawalpindi,” he claimed.

Shehbaz said he would expect the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), the judiciary and all institutions to ensure that the next general elections would be held in a fair and transparent manner. “I call upon all institutions that they will have to ensure fair and transparent elections,” he said.

Shehbaz said that three years ago, when the PTI came to power with a selected prime minister, it destroyed Pakistan. Now after three years, people’s eyes have opened to the reality, he added.

The opposition leader said that Pakistan enjoyed no respect in the world anymore, while the country’s economy had been ruined with increasing burden of loans. “Still the selected prime minister tells people that they should not panic,” he said, adding the prices of medicines, flour and sugar were getting out of reach of common man.

He said that contrary to claims of the PTI leadership of providing millions of jobs, they, instead, deprived hundreds of thousands of people of their employment. “Our 2018 manifesto promised homes for people. Had it been our government there, we would have already provided hundreds of thousands of people with homes,” Shehbaz claimed.
