National Assembly should pass resolution for ‘freedom of Kashmiris, Palestinians’: Shehbaz Sharif

Shehbaz Sharif.

Addressing the National Assembly after being unanimously picked as the next prime minister of the ruling coalition of the PML(N), PPP and others, Shehbaz Sharif on Sunday called out the ‘global silence’ on the prevailing situiation in Gaza while seeking a bipartisan resolution in the House advocating ‘freedom’ for Kashmiris and Palestinians, Dawn reported.

“Let’s all come together…and the National Assembly should pass a resolution for the freedom of Kashmiris and Palestinians,” PM-designate Shehbaz said in a ‘victory speech’ at the Assembly.

The Pakistan National Assembly on Sunday elected Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Shehbaz Sharif as the 24th elected Prime Minister of the country, during a session that started with Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) members creating a ruckus by shouting slogans.

The PM-designate stated further that amid the severe economic downturn in the country and livelihood concerns of the people, even the expenditures of the National Assembly were being paid by borrowed money, Dawn reported.
