Islamabad: Though Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani remains optimistic about his party’s victory in next general election, he thinks otherwise for his political rivals Imran Khan and Mian Nawaz Shairf.
In an interview with a private television to be air tonight (Saturday),he claimed that Nawaz Shairf would lose next general election. Gilani declined to comment on Supreme Court verdict of convicting him with contempt. He said as to why Shairf didn’t tell the court about presidential immunity.

Moreover, speaking at a public gathering in Norowal, Gilani said that Nawaz Sharif didn’t accept President Asif Ali Zardari, Shahbaz Sharif was ready to accept him as prime minister and now Chaudhry Nisar had started speaking that he didn’t accept National Assembly speaker.
