Lahore, July 26 (IANS) Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Thursday that the mandate has been snatched from the people of the country.
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz supremo made the remarks during a meeting with party leaders at Adiala jail in Rawalpindi.

Nawaz Sharif reiterated that he firmly adheres to his “respect for vote” stance, adding that he is standing for the restoration of civil supremacy.
