In London, Nawaz Sharif has important discussions with party leaders.

Former Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif met with former Finance Minister Ishaq Dar and other Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders in London. Mian Nawaz Sharif also spoke over the phone with Prime Minister Shehbaz, as well as with other Pakistani party officials.

Nawaz Sharif reviewed the future course of action of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz with Shehbaz Sharif (PML-N). They also talked on the phone regarding the candidacy for Punjab Assembly Speaker. Hassan Murtaza and Ali Haider Gillani were considered for the position of Punjab Assembly Speaker.

The PML-N is expected to back the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) nominee for Punjab Assembly Speaker.The PML-N has also instructed its MPAs to remain in Lahore. Furthermore, the Prime Minister stated on Wednesday that, despite the current massive economic challenges, the government would build Pakistan a great country without submitting to the fascist and propaganda of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leadership.

In his address to the National Assembly, the prime minister stated that the unified opposition had accepted the challenge of assuming the government solely to save the country, which was on the edge of default due to record inflation and unemployment. He dismissed the marketing of “imported government,” claiming that he did not become prime minister through the backdoor, but rather that the parliament changed the government for the first time through a constitutional process.

He claimed that the PTI administration violated the Constitution through the National Assembly deputy speaker and the president’s dissolution of the assembly. He stated that the constitution also established the powers of the legislative and the judiciary, but that in the last 75 years, martial laws had made a mockery of the constitution, leading to the country’s disintegration and weakening of democracy.

In contrast to Pakistan, he stated that neighbouring countries that were far behind it in terms of development had thrived and had likewise gotten rid of the International Monetary Fund after improving their economies.
