Nawaz has right to participate in politics: Tallal Chaudhry


ISLAMABAD Oct 3 (TNS):  State Minister for Interior Tallal Chaudhry said on Tuesday that Nawaz Sharif should get all the rights granted to a normal citizen so he can participate in politics in a democratic manner.

The PML-N leader was speaking to the media following Nawaz Sharif’s re-election as party president.

Chaudhry said that Nawaz will become prime minister again in the next general elections.

He said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Pakistan Awami Tehreek can submit as many petitions against Nawaz Sharif as they want.

“The things not even perceived before were carried out by Nawaz, from making Pakistan an atomic power to the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor,” said Chaudhry.

Moreover, today, Pakistan Awami Tehreek challenged the Elections Bill 2017 in the Lahore High Court, pleading to have the law declared null and void.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Sheikh Rasheed-led Awami Muslim League have also decided to challenge the law.

The National Assembly on Monday passed the Elections Bill 2017, paving way for the former prime minister to regain chairmanship of the ruling party. The bill was also ratified by President Mamnoon Hussain.

Calling the amendment to the Constitution ‘remnants of a dictator’, Chaudhry said that the amendment was removed democratically.
