Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb has said that the party would award tickets to candidates within next two days as party’s parliamentary board had finalised its recommendations.
Addressing a press conference at the party secretariat in Model Town on Thursday, she said the PML-N would announce its party manifesto the next week, adding that the party would present its manifesto, or the next five-year plan, in the light of its previous five-year performance.
The PML-N spokesperson said that the party would contest July 25 election through a neat and clean election campaign, adding that the party had an enviable performance to seek votes.
“United we go to the people’s court on July 25 and masses would reward us with success,” she claimed.
About reshuffle in bureaucracy, she said that the transfers could not affect election results as the projects could not be shifted and they stand witness to good governance of the PML-N governments in provinces and the centre.
About the disgruntled ticket aspirants, she said that the party workers were our asset, adding her elevation to an important post in the party was a true reflection of the importance the PML-N gives to women in particular. She said that the reservations of disgruntled party workers had been redressed in the review committee of the party. She said that women would be accommodated at other party positions.
About PML-N supreme leader Nawaz Sharif, Marriyum said Nawaz was faced with media and court trial, alleging anyone with the suffix ‘Sharif’ in their name would be summoned by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB). She alleged that only the PML-N leadership was being summoned by NAB.
The PML-N spokesperson alleged that NAB was silent in the cases of others while the PML-N leadership was being targeted and prosecuted despite the fact there was nothing against them.
About the return of Nawaz and Maryam Nawaz to the country, she said that their priority was the health of Kulsoom Nawaz as should be of any husband and a daughter.
She said that she was hurt by PPP stalwart Aitzaz Ahsan’s statement about Kulsoom Nawaz, adding that women should be saved from political point-scoring and mud-slinging. She said it was unfair to humiliate women.
About Imran Khan, she said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman was tried, tested and he had failed miserably in the people’s court as he was incompetent. She said that Imran could not launch even a single project in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) during the past five years.
About rumours of PML-N leader Zaeem Qadri deserting the party, she said that Qadri had been an active, loyal and trusted member of the party and it was premature to comment on the agenda of his presser.
