Next general election on scheduled time: Kaira
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party Information Secretary Qamar Zaman Kaira on Wednesday said the government will complete its tenure and elections will be held according to the schedule.
Talking to media outside the Parliament House, he said, “The election will be held on time and it cannot be held only on the wishes.”
He said Pakistan Muslim League-N was ruling in one province and its President Mian Nawaz Sharif can also become Member of National Assembly by contesting the elections.
He was of the view that if Mian Nawaz Sharif opted for becoming a Member of National Assembly, it would be better.
However, he regretted that Mian Sahib was not showing interest to become Member of National Assembly.
To a question about US negotiation with Taliban, he said it is a welcome step and one should appreciate it. However, he said, negotiation without Pakistan would not ensure the desired results.
“It would be negation of the sacrifices offered by Pakistan in war against terrorism, if it is not included in the dialogue process with Taliban”, he said.
About Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf, he said, though people are joining it but PTI has no political basis or foundation. “How a party can bring revolution if it inducts rejected personalities”.
To another question, he said Shaheed Benazir Bhutto has brought all the political parties on one agenda through reconciliation.
He said Benazir Bhutto always talked about political tolerance to strengthen the institutions and democracy in the country.
He said Pakistan Peoples Party was taking all the political parties on board on important issues and “we are moving forward despite difference with other political parties”.
