LAHORE: Federal Minister for Privatisation Daniyal Aziz Thursday said Pakistan Muslim League-N had already nominated Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif as the next prime minister of Pakistan and there was complete consensus among the party leaders on his name as the next premier.
Speaking to the media outside Jati Umra, he said that former premier Nawaz Sharif’s announcement regarding Shehbaz Sharif as the candidate for the prime minister office in the next elections was the result of his hard work, devotion and public service.
He said that the Sharif family was fully united and conspiracies aimed at creating differences among the members would fail.
He said that Nawaz Sharif was struggling to prove his innocence, adding that he (Nawaz) was punished first and proofs were being collected later.
He said that propaganda was being made across the world to prove Nawaz Sharif as a corrupt prime minister which, he said, was totally wrong. “A NAB team went to London thrice but failed to get proofs against Nawaz Sharif,” Daniyal added.
The minister said that consultation with all political parties over FATA bill was in progress. He said that national economy was at the worst due to the current situation of the country.
Earlier, Pakistan Muslim League-N President Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, while chairing a meeting at Jati Umra, nominated Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif as the candidate for the prime minister slot in the next elections.
