ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday once again proposed a grand national dialogue among the political parties to strengthen democracy and ensure rule of law in the Country.
In his address at Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Central General Council meeting at Convention Center in Islamabad after being re-elected as party head, Nawaz Sharif said he had suggested a grand national dialogue with an objective to ensure democratic rule in the democratic country and respect for the public mandate as per Constitution of Pakistan.
Nawaz Sharif said he was a staunch believer of promoting politics of values and always worked to ensure rule of law and strengthen democratic system in the Country.
“I believe in politics of values and not power. I always worked to ensure rule of law and strengthen democratic system,” he said.
“With the same spirit, I and Mohtarma (Benazir Bhutto) signed a charter of democracy and cooperated with the PPP government after the 2008 elections, avoided moving no confidence motion against it in the AJK Legislative Assembly and bade a farewell to President Asif Ali Zardari,” he added.
The former prime minister congratulated the party workers and paid tribute to parliamentarians for passage of the Election Reforms Bill 2017 by the Senate and National Assembly, abolishing the amendments incorporated by Dictator Pervez Musharraf in the Constitution.
Nawaz also thanked members of the general council, who came from across the Country for election of PML-N President, for reposing complete confidence on his leadership.
The newly re-elected PML-N president said he always worked to serve the nation with complete sincerity and honesty without any ‘greed and selfish motives,’ vowing to continue with the same zeal in future.
