LAHORE -  National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq has said the Supreme Court verdict to legitimise the election of Federal Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif is another victory of PML-N.

“The Supreme Court decision is, in fact, another big jolt to those political elements which have been over the years questioning fairness and transparency of the last general elections,” the NA speaker told media persons, while replying to a question with reference to the PTI which faced a legal defeat in the apex court regarding electoral win of Khawaja Asif .

With reference to PTI leaders’ tirade against the government over the formation of the committee to probe leaked story scandal, the speaker said some people have made their habit to protest and suspect every act of the government. On the SC verdict about the case against Khwaja Asif , he said it was a grand victory of the Sialkot electorate. The verdict has also proven all charges of the PTI about election rigging false, he said, adding the court decision on the election of Khwaja Saad Rafiq will also come soon and will not be different from it. To a question on the protests in America after the election of Donald Trump as the US president, the speaker said the Americans had also protested the victory of George Bush. Demonstrations in America will end soon as the situation in that part is different from that of Pakistan, he concluded.
