‘Not my Supreme Court’, says Maryam insisting elections to only happen when she says so

LAHORE – After the Supreme Court (SC), in a 3-2 verdict, ruled on Wednesday that elections in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab should be held within 90 days, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Senior Vice President Maryam Nawaz told the apex court to wait for her ruling.

Striking down the Supreme Court rulings in her verdict late Wednesday night, Maryam reminded Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial, Justice Munib Akhtar and Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar that she gets to decide when elections take place in Pakistan.

“This is not my government. This is not my Supreme Court. I thought I made myself clear in Sahiwal on Monday: elections cannot happen until I say so. They will only take place when I announce them,” Maryam said while talking to The Dependent.

“And I will announce the elections when I have full guarantees that Nawaz Sharif has once again been selected as the prime minister for at least five years,” she added.

Informing The Dependent that she plans to summon the Supreme Court with a contempt of Maryam Nawaz notice, the PML-N senior vice president further insisted that undemocratic forces will no longer be allowed to flourish in Pakistan.

“Anyone who does not listen to Nawaz Sharif or Maryam Nawaz: know that democracy will not forgive you,” she told this scribe.

“Now if you will excuse me, democracy has to take her leave,” Maryam added, concluding the interview.
