“I will not resign” PM Nawaz Sharif

ISLAMABAD (web desk) – Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif on Thursday has termed final report submitted by Panama Joint Investigation Team (JIT) as based on only assumptions and accusations.

Chairing a meeting of the Federal Cabinet, PM Nawaz said that we are running family business since 1937. He said that the language used in the report has shown dishonesty of the investigation team.

Meanwhile, the participants of the meeting also advised PM to not resign due to the pressure from the conspiracy group and announced to fight a legal war in this regard.

The meeting also discussed overall political, security and economic situation in the country whereas it also approved terms and conditions of the appointment of Member Gas, and Member Oil of Oil and Gas of Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority.

On the other hand, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) parliamentary party meeting will be held in Islamabad on Friday to review Panama JIT report.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Prime Minister chaired a consultative meeting of his party leaders during which it was decided that PM Nawaz will not resign from his post.

In an address to the party leaders, it was said that no one will be allowed to hurt the public mandate. The attendees including legal experts and senior Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) members showed confidence in the premier. Nawaz Sharif said the allegations of not cooperating with the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) for Panama case are baseless.

PM Nawaz made it clear that he will neither dissolve the assemblies nor resign from his position in a meeting to discuss course-of-action of the ruling party after JIT report.
