ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif Sunday congratulated the newly-elected members of the National and Provincial assemblies in the by-elections.

He said the victory of PMLN candidates in the by-elections is a manifestation of people’s confidence in the party policies. “We sincerely thank people who voted for the Muslim League-N in the by-election,” he said in a statement. The PM said the public should rest assured that the PMLN government would not leave any stone unturned to serve them.

He said along with visible signs of economic improvement, the change in public opinion was also becoming noticeable. The success of PMLN candidates was a public acknowledgment of the government’s service in restoring the economy, reducing inflation and improving foreign relations. With economic improvement and increase in public relief, the public opinion would change further in the coming times, he hoped.

Forecasts of economic improvement in international financial institutions, news agencies and surveys had also had a positive impact on public opinion, he added.

The PM said that non-political behaviour of the opposition after the February 8 elections had also left its supporters confused and disappointed.

Losing and winning is part of the electoral process, instead of accusations, it is a democratic attitude to adopt the path of political cooperation, he advised. Flaws and objections in the electoral process could be removed only through mutual cooperation and political dialogue, added Shehbaz Sharif.
