PML-N nominates Saeeduzzaman
ISLAMABAD: The PML-N on Monday nominated chief justice (retd) Saeeduzzaman Siddiqui as its candidate for the September 6 presidential election.
PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif announced the nomination of Justice (retd) Siddiqui after chairing a joint meeting of the Central Working Committee (CWC) and the parliamentary party here at the Punjab House.
“He is a true Pakistani who sacrificed his career for the supremacy of the Constitution and refused to take oath under the PCO. Moreover, he has no affiliations with any political party,” Nawaz Sharif told a news conference.
The PML-N is thankful to Justice (retd) Siddiqui for accepting its request to become its presidential candidate, he added. Talking briefly to newsmen, Justice (retd) Saeeduzzaman Siddiqui said it was an honour for him that the PML-N had nominated him as its presidential candidate.
“The PML-N is the most popular party of the country which has laid the foundation of principled politics,” he said. He added that for the first time in the history of the country, a party had campaigned for the independence and dignity of the judiciary.
He observed that at a time when the country was engulfed in crisis and a military operation was in progress in the tribal areas, there was huge responsibility on the PML-N and the PPP to steer the nation out of the crisis. “The country should not be driven to the 1971-like situation,” he said.
