Solution to country’s problems lies in constitution, says Abbasi



Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) senior leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi Abbasi has stated, “solution to the country’s problems lies in the Constitution. There is no alternative. If we don’t run this country as per the Constitution, then this state will not survive.”“The military chief suggests politicians to change parties while the inelegance head tells them you can’t win elections. We are responsible for destroying ourselves so that we can’t send competent people to parliament or stop them,” Abbasi said.

Speaking at a seminar entitled ‘Reimagining Pakistan’ at the Habib University here, the former prime minister said the way the country was being run will do no good and stressed dialogue to get the country out of the current situation. Fawad Hasan Fawad, aide to former PM Nawaz Sharif; PPP former leader Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar and other economists were present at the seminar.

He said the country’s economy remained connected with politics and believed that corruption was the biggest of all the problems the country was facing, local media reports. Urging politicians to stop leveling allegations against each other, Abbasi said by refraining from doing politics based on hatred, the country could lead to prosperity.
