PPP ready for general elections, says Gilani

MULTAN:Former prime minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani said on Friday the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) was ready for general elections.

Talking to media persons in Multan, Gilani welcomed the election announcement by the Election Commission, saying there was no ambiguity that the elections would be held in the last week of January. He, however, demanded that the ECP should announce the exact date of elections.

Answering a question about alliance with any party, Gilani stated that the PPP had no alliance with any political party so far.

To a question about Nawaz Sharif’s return to Pakistan, the PPP leader said they welcomed the former prime minister’s return. He (Nawaz Sharif) should come and participate in politics as the PPP had no objection to it.
