LAHORE - PPP Senator Chaudhry Aitzaz Ahsan Tuesday said minus-one formula in political parties is not correct and those who want it should not be successful.

He said Nawaz Sharif and Nawaz-league is a right decision as the party has to be led by Sharif. He expressed these views while talking to reporters during his visit to the Supreme Court Bar Association.

Aitzaz said there is a big challenge for the new NAB chairman as the probe bureau is working differently in Punjab and Sindh. He criticised the government authorities for not putting Nawaz Sharif’s name on Exit Control List (ECL), terming it a double standard.

Dr Asim, he said, also remained into Rangers’ custody and it was discriminatory. He said the reports of Model Town incident and Abottabad should be made public.

Answering a question about next general elections, he hoped they would be held on time.

To another query why PPP’s graph sharply fell in the Punjab as its candidate, being a member of the main opposition party, could not get votes as expected, Ahsan replied party position could not be determined just from the election result of a constituency; still there is the whole country for campaign in the general elections.

Regarding a question about Maryam Nawaz’s role in PML-N, he said the role of the ex-PM’s daughter is very effective as compared to Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif and former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan. He said she took the party out from the place where these two leaders wanted to take it. “Maryam’s role is leading in her party,” he said.
