Our Prime Min­is­ter needs Time

Southasia - - EDITOR’S MAIL -

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.
