Nawaz Sharif Islamabad, Nov 2(ANI): Opposition leader in the Pakistan National Assembly, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, has said that mid-term elections could be one of the options to get rid of the ruling Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) government.

Khan said that such a situation has emerged due to the dismal performance of the government.

“Mid-term election is an option. Whenever there is talk about this, hue and cry is started in power corridors,” the Dawn quoted Khan, as saying.

“Voices are coming from streets that we be saved from the present rulers and I hear these voices,” he added.

It is pertinent to mention that Khan’s comment comes ahead of a meeting proposed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif.

Sharif is scheduled to meet senior party leaders and members of the Central Organising Committee in Islamabad on November 5.

Meanwhile, the PPP has ruled out mid-term elections saying that there was no provision for it in the constitution.

The coordinator to President Asif Zardari for Punjab, Naveed Chaudhry further criticized the opposition for talking about problems, but never suggesting any solution. (ANI)
