Sharif could have been Pakistan President: PML-QJanuary 12th, 2009 - 1:58 pm ICT by ANI
Lahore, Jan 12 (ANI): Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid chief Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain has said that PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif would have been Pakistan President right now if he had approached his party after the February 18 elections.
Speaking during a luncheon hosted by the PML-Q for the Council of Pakistan Newspapers Editors (CPNE) office-bearers, Shujaat said the process of unification between various factions of the Muslim League was in progress, adding any alliance should be made on the basis of equality.
The Daily Times quoted him as saying that a positive approach was necessary for any such alliance to materialise, and added that the PML-Q had always preferred national interest over personal gains.
Shujaat said he wanted all political parties to sit together for devising a strategy to counter problems faced by the country.
CPNE President Arif Nizami termed the Muslim Leagues alliance important for national interest, and said it would pave the way for a two-party system in the country.
CPNE General Secretary Khushnood Ali Khan said that protagonists of democracy had promulgated a black law in the form of an ordinance for newspapers and news agencies.
Dubbing the ordinance as undemocratic, he said it was worse than the Press and Publication Ordinance promulgated by military dictator Ayub Khan. (ANI)
