Won’t let Imran establish his ‘monarchy’: Shehbaz Rejects EVM, says it is an attack on Parliament

Observer Report

Pakistan Muslim League-N President Shehbaz Sharif on Friday said his party will not let “Imran Niazi establish his monarchy” in Pakistan.

The statement was issued following a crucial meeting of PML-N’s parliamentary advisory board, held at the opposition’s chamber in the Parliament House, Islamabad.

The participants mulled over bulldozing government’s legislation on key issues, including on electronic voting machines and giving overseas Pakistanis the right to vote. They were also briefed on the joint opposition’s measures to challenge the legislation in court.

Those in attendance at the meeting decided that the joint opposition will challenge the government’s “fascism” and unconstitutional measures both in and outside of parliament.
Condemning the recent move by Imran-led government, the meeting observed that the electoral reforms were materialised without consensus for the first time in the country’s history.

Addressing the meeting, Shehbaz said the government’s legislation was unlawful and contrary to the Constitution. “We reject the royal decree of Imran Niazi,” he quipped, adding, “this government has been humiliated in front of the people and it is now attacking the Constitution.”

He went on to say that the government that bombarded masses with inflation has now waged a suicide attack on parliament. “Those who are supporting the tyrant, anti-people and anti-law government are guilty before the masses.”

Shehbaz further noted that a recent statement issued by the Election Commission of Pakistan was against the legislation and was a testament against EVMs.
