LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz has said that the government has suffered a historic defeat during the by-elections in all the four provinces.
During a press conference in Lahore, Maryam Nawaz said that the people went out in large numbers yesterday and exercised their right to vote. The people supported the statement of “Respect the Vote”. In the election, they fought for the honor of the vote and won. The people not only voted but also kept watch till the last moment.
Maryam Nawaz said that this government is not a mafia, they knew that they would lose but did not know that they would lose badly. If Rana Sanaullah had been present at the time of firing, these people would have come to Raiwind and arrested me.
The PML-N leader said that the polling process in Daska and Wazirabad was slowed down, where the PML-N candidate was winning, the polling was stopped. Despite fleeing, he picked up the entire staff of the Election Commission. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. When the Chief Election Commissioner asked the IG Punjab to search for the Presiding Officer, the reply was that the Presiding Officer could not come due to heavy fog.
Maryam Nawaz said that the government has suffered a historic defeat during the by-elections in all the four provinces. People were martyred in the firing during the by-elections. Yes, the ECP’s press release is a huge charge sheet against the government.
