ISLAMABAD: Ex-Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Tuesday that Yousaf Raza Gilani should not have been disqualified by the apex court.
Speaking with journalists one day ahead of his visit to Lahore via GT Road, Nawaz Sharif spoke about the decision to disqualify him.
“Was ousted first by a President, then by a dictator and now by the Supreme Court,” he said.
Nawaz Sharif said that out of the 18 prime ministers that had been elected in the country, not one of them had been able to complete their term.
“A prime minister should not be insulted neither should he be humiliated,” said Nawaz.
While speaking to journalists, Nawaz said that Yousaf Raza Gilani should not have been disqualified.
Former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani was disqualified by the Supreme Court of Pakistan in 2012 after finding him guilty for contempt of court.
Back then Nawaz Sharif, who was the country’s top opposition leader, had welcomed the decision by the apex court to disqualify Gilani.
