Islamabad, Oct 21 (UNI): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has said that he is returning to Pakistan after “vindication” and added that his party is “competent enough” to steer the country of crisis.
“I am returning to Pakistan after being vindicated with the grace of Almighty Allah,” he said on Saturday while speaking to the media at Dubai airport ahead of Pakistan departure.
The three-time former prime minister is returning to Pakistan after ending 4-year self-imposed exile in London and is hoping to make a political comeback in the upcoming general elections expected to be held in the last week of January next year, according to Geo news.
The former PM said his party is in a position to resolve the masses’ woes if elected into power, according to media reports.
Responding to a question related to the general elections, Nawaz put his weight behind the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).
“Only the Election Commission can make a better decision regarding the elections. What the Election Commission thinks is right is my preference on the elections,” said Nawaz when he was asked about the January polls.
He also said that a “fair” Election Commission is in place in the country.
The PML-N supremo believes that his party is competent enough to take Pakistan out of the crisis that it is presently in.
“We are competent enough to solve the country’s problems,” he said.
While mentioning the achievements of his previous sting powers, the PML-N supremo lamented that the country is in a much “worse situation” rather than being in a good position.
“The situation in Pakistan is very disturbing and that is very worrying,” said Nawaz.
