Willing to make any sacrifice for democracy: Nawaz


LAHORE: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif remarked on Friday that he is willing to make any sacrifice for the sake of democracy.

The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz head was speaking to the media after offering Friday prayers.

He added: “May God have mercy on the condition in the country.”

On Thursday, Nawaz had said that the era of progress initiated by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz should continue while speaking to media in Murree.

Nawaz also remarked that he feels proud that people have showered him with so much love and respect. “I love all my supporters equally.”

“Please pray that God blesses Pakistan and PML-N,” he remarked.

The PML-N president also said that a programme for the prosperity and progress of the poor will be implemented in the future.

Earlier Thursday, Chief Justice of Pakistan dismissed Nawaz Sharif’s appeal on the registrar’s decision rejecting his petition which sought an end to the multiple corruption cases against him.

On October 13, the former prime minister had approached the Supreme Court seeking an end to the multiple references against him and pleaded that they are combined into one.

However, the apex court’s registrar had rejected the petition, saying the petitioner needs to approach the relevant forum.

Later, Nawaz appealed the registrar’s decision which was heard in-camera today by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, who dismissed the appeal.

Talking to Geo News, Nawaz’s counsel Khawaja Harris said they were not expecting this decision, adding that such appeals are usually heard in open court.
