LAHORE: Former Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has said that if anything happened to the new prime minister, it would tantamount to breaking up the country.

He said that the court decision against him was also unconstitutional. Gilani said that writing a letter to Swiss authorities would go against the constitution.

The former prime minister also said that if elected officials were to be dismissed by court decisions, then there would be no use for elections.

Gilani said that the system should be allowed to continue. He also said that the judiciary is not a political party and that it should not have any agenda.
