Nawaz Sharif Islamabad, June 6 (ANI): PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif has said he has no personal animosity with Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari, and is only working for the restoration of democracy.

Sharif said Pakistan has no real democracy, and is still running under a system that is an extension of the Musharraf regime.

Real democracy could be restored by abolishing of the 17th Amendment and implementation of the Charter of Democracy, the Daily Times quoted him, as saying.

Claiming that he has no desire to become president or prime minister, Sharif said his party is ready to play a constructive opposition’s role.

“We want to work with them to strengthen democracy and bring the country out of the critical it is going through,” he said.

He said no major project, including the Kalabagh Dam, should be commenced without evolving national consensus. (ANI)
