Rulers days numbered: Maryam Nawaz

Monitoring Desk :

Vice President Pakistan Muslim League (N), Maryam Nawaz has reiterated that rulers’ days are numbered. She was speaking to reporters on the eve of the release of Hamza Shehbaz in Lahore.

In response to a question about the planned long march, she hinted that there may be no need of launching a long march. “There is the possibility that long march may not be needed”, she said.

Earlier, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, the president of the opposition alliance PDM, had announced that the long march on Islamabad would be held from March 26 to overthrow the government.

Ms. Nawaz, however, did not explain why the march might not be needed. But, she did declare that people were fully prepared for it.

Answering a question about the PML-N joining hands with the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) over the Senate polls in Punjab from where all 11 candidates have been elected unopposed, she said: “It is better if you do not ask me about this.”

Five Senate seats went to the PTI and PML-N each and one to the PML-Q, an ally of the ruling party.

A source close to her said that Ms. Nawaz was not happy over her party’s decision to go for an unopposed Senate election in Punjab. Ms. Nawaz wanted the election in Punjab on March 3 to expose the fissures within the PTI. She is of the view that through the unopposed election, the opposition had provided relief to Imran Khan, the source said.

The PTI has credited PML-Q senior leader and Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Parvez Elahi with evolving a consensus among the ruling party and the opposition — PML-N and PPP — to have their senators elected as per their numbers in the Punjab Assembly.
