PM can seek explanation from CJP over today's remarks, says Nawaz

ISLAMABAD: Former premier Nawaz Sharif said that the prime minister, if he deems fit, can seek an explanation from the chief justice over his remarks made today.
Talking to journalists at the corruption hearing against him, Nawaz was referring to Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar’s comments today wherein he said he did not lose anything and only gained from his meeting with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.
Nawaz said the chief justice should not have said what he did, adding that every state institution should stay within its constitutional limits.
The three-time premier claimed he never interfered in any other institution’s business. “I never violated my constitutional mandate,” he claimed, pressing other institutions to do the same.
Nawaz recalled that Supreme Court Justice Azmat Saeed Sheikh had said that there is space vacant in Adiala Jail, Rawalpindi. “It is highly inappropriate to use such terms for a prime minister,” lamented Nawaz.
He added that he will soon meet Abbasi.
It is very important to discuss the importance of the Constitution and sanctity of the vote.
