ISLAMABAD – After the report of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family, the opposition parties have come on same page regarding PM’s resignation and said he should defend himself after leaving his office.
The opposition parties including Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) have taken the stance that there will be no threat to democracy if Nawaz steps down.
Opposition Leader in National Assembly Khurshid Shah met PTI leader Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Tuesday and said if PM Nawaz wants to save democracy, he should immediately resign, and there will be no damage to the system. Shah assured that opposition will have no reservation if Nawaz brings forward a new PM.
Meanwhile, PTI’s Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Nawaz Sharif is left with no moral, political and legal authority to stay on PM’s post after the JIT report. Qureshi reminded Nawaz Sharif of the promise that he made to the country on the floor of the House last year in which he guaranteed to resign without wasting a moment if any evidence is found against him in the investigations.
