PM hopes Germany to invest in Pakistan
ISLAMABAD/ LONDON: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said his government has already written to Chief Justice of Pakistan regarding formation of a judicial commission to probe alleged fraud into May 2013 polls.
Speaking to media persons here on Wednesday, Prime Minister Sharif said that it was Chief Justice’s prerogative to form the commission. The government, he said, cannot dictate the chief justice.
He said that questions were being raised about the sit-ins even on foreign visits.
“Pakistan has moved forward, leaving protests behind,” he said, adding that some people were not happy with government’s efforts to bring in foreign investment.
To a question, he said that new demands for inclusion of agencies in judicial commission were surprising. “Politicians should not make such demands. We should work within the parameters of the constitution,” he said.
The prime minister asserted that power crisis would be resolved during his term.
He added: “We should respect the decision taken by the government in the general elections.”
- Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday said that the international community’s trust on Pakistan is growing as Germany will invest in Pakistan.
Nawaz Sharif said the government is undertaking serious efforts to bring the country out of crises, and resolve the energy issue at earliest. He hoped that the electricity crisis would end within the current government’s tenure. He said some people are not liking the sincere efforts being made by the government, and creating problems for it.
He said the sit-ins have caused huge losses to the country in respect of economy as well as image. He said people abroad ask about the sit-ins, and the Pakistanis have nothing to clarify.
To a question, the Prime Minister said he had written a letter to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court for constituting a commission to probe the alleged electoral rigging, and it is not up to the court to form the commission.DNA
