Marivi Memon – File Photo

LAHORE: Former MNA of PML-Q Marvi Memon, announced joining PML-N on Sunday during a press conference in Lahore, DawnNews reported.

Memon had resigned from her National Assembly seat in June 2011 in protest when the PML-Q decided to join hands with the People’s Party-led federal government.

Memon said that the country could not be served by remaining in the establishment's party and said that what she observed in PML-N regarding democracy, she saw in no other political party. She also added that she was impressed by the excellent governance in Punjab.

During the press conference, PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif also added that if the PML-N had been in place of the government today, half the nation's problems would have been eliminated.

Sharif said that his party needed people like Memon, who would win votes regardless of which province she competed from.
