Nawaz Sharif unveils PML-N’s much-awaited election manifesto


ISLAMABAD: The much-awaited election manifesto by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) is being unveiled today by party’s supremo Nawaz Sharif.

Initiating the launch of the manifesto, the party’s Manifesto Committee Chairman Senator Irfan Siddiqui said there is nothing in the manifesto that the PML-N will not be able to do when it comes to power.

Siddiqui added that PML-N supremo directed the committee not to include anything in the manifesto that the party cannot fullfill in the future.

“Nawaz Sharif had forbidden [us] from showing false dreams in the manifesto,” he said, adding that he was fully guided by the leadership during the preparation.

He said the delay in announcement of manifesto came as the party was focusing on reforms during the preparation.

“At least 32 committees were formed to draft the manifesto, which also includes the party’s past performance,” he said.

Party’s President Shehbaz Sharif, who was also present at the launch alongside senior leadership, said a special body will be established to ensure the effective implementation of the manifesto.

“People must see which political party fulfilled promises made in its manifesto. Everyone presents the manifesto, but some act upon it,” he added.

Also present at the launch, PML-N leader Ahsan Iqbal said there is a difference between social media myths and reality while taking a jibe at social media campaigns being led by other political parties, particularly the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
