Talking about the caretaker PM selection, Shehbaz Sharif said that while his allies have granted him the authority regarding this significant decision, there remains a constitutional timeframe to finalize the appointment.
Regarding recent legal developments, PM Shehbaz expressed his view that the annulment of the Review of Judgment Act would not have any impact on Nawaz Sharif’s situation.
He went on to say that Nawaz Sharif’s disqualification had concluded after five years and that there were no legal hurdles impeding his return.
“I believe that due to the poor economic condition, our vote bank decreased but we saved the state. There is no obstacle in Nawaz Sharif’s return,” he said.
Turning the conversation toward economic challenges, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif addressed the issue of inflation, attributing it to the policies of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). He highlighted his administration’s efforts to tackle the high inflation rate, resulting in a reduction in its impact on the general public.
