Nawaz says his party will move out of coalition if all sacked judges are not restoredAugust 21st, 2008 - 2:52 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Aug 21 (ANI): PML-N leader and former Pakistan premier Nawaz Sharif has said that his party would move out of the federal coalition government led by the PPP if the sacked judges were not restored, and that as an Opposition his party would not pose any threat to the Government.
In an interview with a US daily, he said that PPP Co-chairman was still not in a mood to restore deposed chief justice Iftikhar Chaudhry and was adamant on Minus One Formula which signified restoring all judges sans Iftikhar.
It will be a bad day for the democracy and country if judges are not reinstated, The News quoted the PML-N chief as saying in the interview.
Actions of former president Pervez Musharraf would be protected in case judges were not restored, he noted, adding several members of PML-Q expressed the desire to join his party.
Sharif said that democracy was more important than becoming a prime minister again. I or anyone else in my party are not the presidential candidate, said Nawaz adding that the decision should be based on national. (ANI)
