National integrity far ahead than Elections: Shujaat

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League (PML) President Ch. Shujaat Hussain said that national integrity and solidarity of Pakistan are more important than all other considerations including the upcoming Elections, and the timing.“We believe that national integrity and interests come first,” he said while addressing a news conference. Several contesting candidates including Syed Mushahid Hussain and Tariq Azeem of PML-Q, for seats in the National Assembly across the country, were also present at the occasion.

He said that the leadership of PML-Q is not against the Elections however blame game on PML-Q is not acceptable for anyone in connection with the murder of Ms Bhutto. He said, “I am much grieved over press conference organized by her widower Mr. Asif Zardari as he insulted Quaid-e-Azam league by calling it Qatil League. We are peace loving people and don’t want any confrontational situation”. He added that this is the Election Commission who will decide whether to hold Elections on January 8 or not. He added that His party was ready to contest the election on January 8.

He emphasized that elections should be held in fair and transparent manner. He remarked that that we can not make any recommendation to the Election Commission with reference to the schedule of Elections however situation in Pakistan is not conducive for the Polls right now.
