Elections to be held on Nawaz’s return, says Talal

FAISALABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Talal Chaudhry on Wednesday said that elections will be held in the country upon the arrival of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
Speaking to the media, Mr Chaudhry made it clear that the PML-N supremo will lead the party’s election campaign. In connection with the May 9 mayhem, Mr Chaudhry made it clear that the culprits should be brought to justice.
“No one will be given NRO under pressure. Many people are joining different parties. However, the PML-N’s bus is already full. We already have many prominent politicians and candidates in every constituency of Punjab,” Mr Chaudhry maintained.
He asserted, “The events that took place on May 9 did not happen in a day. But planning for the May 9 vandalism has been years in the making. The case of May 9 riots is a test for the state.”
On Tuesday, PML-N Senior Vice President Maryam Nawaz held a meeting with Australian High Commissioner Neil Hawkins to discuss matters of mutual interest. During the meeting, Ms Nawaz expressed her gratitude to Australia for its humanitarian assistance to Pakistan during the COVID-19 pandemic.
She acknowledged the valuable support provided by Australia and emphasized the importance of the historic partnership between the two countries. –Agencies
