LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hamza Shehbaz on Friday said his party will form a government in Punjab, where it is leading the tally.
Hamza, the son of PML-N president and former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif, made the announcement during a press conference in Lahore.
Thanking the public for voting PML-N, Hamza noted the PML-N has emerged as the biggest party in Punjab after winning the most seats in the provincial assembly, and will therefore form a government in the province.
“PML-N has emerged as the biggest party in Punjab [in the elections], and we will form a government in Punjab. We will fight back if any obstacles are [hurled in our way],” he said.
He slammed the ECP for the delay in election results, and mocked its Results Transmission System (RTS) software which, according to the electoral body, faced a technical glitch during the vote count.
Hamza resolved that the PML-N will continue to fulfill its constitutional duties under the leadership of Nawaz and Shehbaz.— INP
