Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz (PML-N) Chief Nawaz Sharif said on Thursday that after Yousuf Raza Gilani’s conviction he does not accept him as the prime minister, adding that his party will not allow the appointment of chief election commissioner (CEC) as per the government’s wishes, DawnNews reported.

In an interview, Sharif said that the government cannot bear the opposition’s demand that the prime minister resign.

On the issue of appointment of chief election commissioner, the PML-N chief said that his party would present its stance in front of the parliamentary committee.

Speaking on the criticism of the PPP on his recent visit to different districts of Sindh, Sharif said that “The government has problems with my recent visit to Sindh.”

Moreover he said that he did not come to the country after apologising to Pervez Mussahrraf but in fact the former president tried to meet him in Jeddah.

Speaking on the issue of load-shedding, the PML-N chief said that “declaring two days off in a week is not the solution to it.

“The government should tell what concrete measures it has taken to deal with this national problem.”
