Sharif seeks ‘change and revo­lu­tion’

The Washington Post Sunday - - THE WORLD -

De­posed Pak­istani prime min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif called Sat­ur­day for “a change and revo­lu­tion” to en­sure the sanc­tity of the vote as he ad­dressed a large gath­er­ing of sup­port­ers in his home town of Lahore.

Af­ter a Supreme Court de­ci­sion last month dis­qual­i­fied him for con­ceal­ing as­sets, Sharif set out Wed­nes­day with a con­voy from Islamabad, mak­ing stops along the way.

Sharif said that dur­ing his jour­ney, he saw that cit­i­zens had not ac­cepted his re­moval from of­fice, and he asked his sup­port­ers to await his next move, with­out elab­o­rat­ing.
