Lahore: Holding President Asif Ali Zardari responsible for the political turmoil, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz President Nawaz Sharif has called on Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani to immediately step down from the post or he would face “unexpected results”.
Nawaz Sharif, while addressing a press conference on Friday, after a meeting of the PML-N, said Mr Gilani had violated his oath by remaining loyal to Zardari instead of the Constitution.
“Pakistan is running without a prime minister since Thursday morning,” he said and added that all the decisions and acts of the prime minister and the federal cabinet were illegal and unconstitutional after conviction of Gilani.
The former prime minister said that his party had many options to get its demands fulfilled, adding that the N-league would protest in and outside the Parliament.
Nawaz Sharif said that a new prime minister that might be from the PPP or any other party be appointed that would write letter to Swiss authorities.
He said that he had no personal enmity with Zardari and Gilani instead he was following principles.
Speaking on the occasion, opposition leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said that Gilani managed to sneak into the Parliament to deliver a speech seeing that the Nawaz-league were not present.
