Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif has said that President Asif Ali Zardari wants to drag the nation toward mid-term elections, Geo TV reported on Friday.
In an interview after his electoral disqualification on Friday, Nawaz Sharif said that no third force could come into power if the government showed maturity and responsibility.
"I will not come in their way if President Zardari restores the deposed judges," he said.
He further added that Zardari had backed out from the promises he made with his Nawaz League.
The democratic revolution could rise in the days to come and it must happen, he added.
Former prime minister said that deposed judges were not being restored due to the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO).
"We have not closed the door to contact the prime minister (Yousuf Raza Gilani)," he said.
He said President Zardari should become the descendant of Benazir Bhutto, and not of former president Pervez Musharraf.
