PML-N will not tolerate any bid to 'engineer' elections: Nawaz

Deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif said on Tuesday his party will not accept at any cost the efforts being made to ‘engineer’ the upcoming general elections.

“The nation will not accept these things; the PML-N won’t accept these things at any cost,” the party’s supremo said while talking to reporters in London.

Nawaz questioned ECP’s decision to deploy soldiers inside polling stations. “I don’t understand the logic of sending [the troops] inside the polling booths,” he said.

Reiterating that a campaign against the PML-N is ongoing, Nawaz asked who was behind the candidates contesting the elections with the symbol of jeep. “Our candidates were forced to change their loyalties and election symbol.”

    If I were at Nawaz Sharif’s place, I would have resigned at the time of PANAMA declaration. He would have become hero and contested the current election and would have won with a thumbing majority.
