The statement came after Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hamza Shehbaz was re-elected as the chief minister (CM) of Punjab as Punjab Assembly Deputy Speaker Dost Muhammad Mazari rejected the PML-Q’s votes in light of Shujaat Hussain’s letter.

Also reacting to the re-election of Hamza as Punjab CM, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah heaped praise on the PML-Q president and Zardari for ensuring the victory of his party.

“Chaudhry Shujaat’s decision has saved Pakistan from ‘Imran’s fitna [mischief]… Chaudhry Shujaat is a very seasoned and experienced politician whose decision paves way for PML-N’s victory… and saved the country from PTI’s chaos and promoted democracy in the country,” he remarked while addressing a press conference flanked by Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb in Lahore.
