Govt will complete tenure, polls to be held on time: PM Abbasi

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Thursday said the government would complete its tenure and elections would be held on time.
“The government will complete its tenure and elections will be held on time,” said the prime minister, reiterating the government’s stance.
The premier further said that Ayaz Sadiq’s statement was his personal opinion and he is independent as the speaker of the national assembly.
The speaker of national assembly had stated on Wednesday that he fears the assemblies will not be able to complete their tenure.
“The reservations the speaker have spoken of are in reference to the events of the last three to four months. He made this in reference to the July 28 order which has impacted the economy and politics. Maybe it [Sadiq’s statement] is being taken out of context. This is his opinion.”
Along with the prime minister, Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif also arrived at Hasan Nawaz’s office in London to meet party leader and former premier Nawaz Sharif.
