Politicians should have same respect as judges, generals: PM Abbasi

Aliens’ not caretakers to conduct polls PM

Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said the upcoming general election would be conducted by "aliens", triggering a sharp reaction from the Election Commission which advised him to stay away from making "irresponsible statements", according to a media report.

While referring to upcoming general elections, the premier said that the vote of the people should be respected.

About Afghan issue, the prime minister said Afghan government has finally accepted Pakistan's longstanding stance that Afghan issue must be resolved by Afghans and Pakistan could only facilitate the dialogue process.

He said people of the nation should have the right to decide its future.

According to the report, Abbasi said that consultation with Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah had nearly been completed on the issue of a caretaker prime minister.

About the Kashmir issue, the prime minister reiterated that Pakistan would continue pressing the world community to force India implement the United Nations resolutions on Kashmir issue.

While Abbasi while addressing a ceremony in Pakistan's Pasrur, Abbasi said that politicians must get the same amount of respect as judges, generals, and government officials, The Geo TV reported on Saturday.

The general elections in Pakistan are due to be held in the last week of July or first week of August.

Further supporting ousted Khawaja Asif, he said that disqualification on the basis of Iqama is nothing. "Politicians are in the front when it comes to running countries and solving problems".

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif had also claimed on Thursday that he is not fighting against the Pakistan Peoples Party or Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf but aliens.
