Our political rivals can also see that Nawaz Sharif will become the next prime minister,” said Ms Aurangzeb.Talking about the statement of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari on elections, the PML-N leader said his statement on transparent elections was “encouraging”.

“We are not worried by any words or taunts, we have to give relief to the people,” she said, adding her party had launched its political campaign on October 21 with the arrival of party supremo Nawaz Sharif.

Talking about PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif’s acquittal in the Ashiana-i-Iqbal Housing Scheme reference by a Lahore accountability court, Ms Aurangzeb said the former prime minister was vindicated once again. The former minister further said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan was imposed on the country due to the deliberate failure of the result transmission system, or RTS, in the 2018 elections.

“Today’s youth must know what kind of game was played and the people had to bear the brunt of it,” said the PML-N leader. She added for five to six years a “game” was played with the opposition and justice system.Pakistan, after a tumultuous five years, is approaching one of the most crucial general elections of its history, which are scheduled to take place on February 8 next year.
