PPP lambasts PML-N for changing narrative



ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan People’s Praty (PPP) has censured the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) “changed” narrative on elections, as the party’s supremo, Nawaz Sharif, avoids the mention of elections in his much-awaited address upon his return to the country after a four-year exile.

PPP leader Faisal Karim Kundi said the PML-N has changed its narrative, even though they had earlier always spoken in favour of general elections ahead of the party supremo’s arrival back home.

The politician slammed the three-time former prime minister for shying away from speaking about polls in the country which, according to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), have been scheduled to take place at the end of January 2024.

“Nawaz Sharif should have talked about the election, but he did not,” the PPP leader said, sharing his views on Geo News show ‘Naya Pakistan’ on Saturday.

Speaking to the reporters at Dubai airport a day earlier, PML-N supremo Nawaz put his weight behind the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), saying his party is ready to accept “the ECP’s decision regarding elections”.
