Dismissing rumours, Shehbaz says nobody wants an NRO

August 9, 2018




PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif said his jailed brother Nawaz Sharif doesn’t want politics of chaos in the country.

“The elections were rigged before the polling day and after it,” Shehbaz said after meeting Nawaz at Adiala Jail. “How did the RTS system collapse?”

He said that his candidates' polling agents were removed from the polling stations. “The opposition parties recorded their protest peacefully.”

However, Shehbaz was nowhere to be seen in the protest on Wednesday. “I couldn’t attend the protest due to the bad weather,” he said.

He dismissed rumours that Nawaz was seeking an NRO. “Nobody wants an NRO and nobody is offering one,” he said.

"We will all celebrate Independence Day on August 14 but my question is, could we celebrate the free and fair elections? The answer is no," Shehbaz said, referring to Maulana Fazlur Rehman's statement.
