Our Prime Minister needs Time
Your cover story on Nawaz Sharif’s win in the 2013 general elections was an informative read. The writer explained in detail the many challenges which Nawaz Sharif has to face during his third stint as Prime Minister of Pakistan. Moreover, the nation is waiting for him to take action against the US drone strikes as well as to resolve the internal crisis which has brought Pakistan’s economy at a standstill. Following the five-year rule by the PPPled government, the Pakistani nation has been looking for a change. Being a popular leader in Punjab, Nawaz Sharif has taken over the premiership of Pakistan at a time when internal and external crises are out of control and the country needs a leader who can take prompt action. Although Nawaz Sharif has lead the country twice, he should be given time before he can make tough decisions. Even if he has been on the mantle of power before, he needs breathing space to think and evaluate the consequences of the decisions that he must take. The nation is expecting Nawaz Sharif to bring economic progress and development overnight, but this cannot happen. The Prime Minister will need to evaluate all options and then take the best decision.
