LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), which has surfaced as the leading party in the 2013 polls, is going to let President Asif Ali Zardari complete his remaining five months in the office, says a party leader.

Former law minister in Punjab province, Rana Sanauallah told Dawn.com on Monday that President Zardari is a constitutional president and the PML-N would not risk taking any unconstitutional steps.

“No one amongst the party leadership ever suggested of removing Zardari right away if PML-N wins the general elections,” said Sanaullah.

Speaking to a private TV channel, PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif had also said last week that he has no reservations regarding taking oath from Zardari which he said is according to the constitution.

On the other hand, PTI chief Imran khan had openly stated that his party will not take oath from President Zardari.

The PML-N leaders will take oath from a democratically elected president whether we like him or not, said Rana Sanaullah. “Only if the parliament goes for a vote of confidence against President Zardari then we will take the necessary step,” he said.

“But even that hasn't been decided yet,” he added.

The PML-N leader also denied reports of the party opting to go for a future president from Balochistan.
