“We need to stay within the limits of democracy. Politics does not have an end point,” said Zardari and added that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif did not move forward with the political forces of the country.
He also said that during the PPP’s tenure, there were no political prisoners and the PPP had always taken all stakeholders on board.
Zardari further said that he does not see the Sharif family in politics in the future.
The former president reiterated that the PPP stands with the parliament and democracy.
Replying to a question, the former president said that it is now too late for forming alliances as they 2018 general elections are not far.
PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on the occasion said they will not support the PML-N and no relief should be expected from the PPP.
“We will not support Nawaz Sharif and they should not expect any relief from us.”
Bilawal added that the PPP will continue with its ideological politics.
