Asma says has no desire to become caretaker PM
LAHORE: Former president of the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) Asma Jahangir on Saturday said she had no desire to become the caretaker prime minister, DawnNews reported.
Speaking to media representatives in Lahore, Jahangir said certain people come into power in the name of the people and then refuse to party with it.
She expressed apprehensions that certain forces were trying to create chaos in the country but added that elections would happen on time.
Jahangir moreover said the country’s current situation was a result of the actions taken by regimes of the past, adding that democracy should continue to flourish in Pakistan.
She further said it would be better if retired judges did not join the caretaker set-up.
Earlier in January, Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan had said his party would oppose the nomination of Jahangir for caretaker prime minister.
“The PML-N has endorsed the name of rights activist Asma Jehangir for caretaker prime minister. We oppose this as she has association with the PPP,” Khan had said at a news conference.
