LAHORE: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Qamar Zaman Kaira on Friday said the parliament has not been undermined after former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s ouster.
“No one has undermined the parliament and the system continues to run as it should,” said the PPP leader.
Qaira said Nawaz’s ouster was due to his “own crimes and not due to a threat to democracy”.
He added that the system and the foundations laid down during the PPP’s tenure exist and democracy in the country will gradually improve.
The PPP leader maintained that the party has always believed in cooperation for the betterment of the people and the country.
“PPP believes in cooperation in and out of parliament for the betterment of the people and Pakistan.”
Qaira added that Nawaz should have taken the initiative earlier to cooperate with the political forces of the country.
Earlier, Co-Chairman Pakistan People’s Party Asif Ali Zardari said that the PPP never supported Nawaz Sharif or his government, but supported democracy in order to save it.
Zardari had also added that the PPP wants to see democracy evolve in the country as it is “a gradual process”.
PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on the occasion had also said they will not support the PML-N and no relief should be expected from the PPP.
