Many predict that he will bring what the nation has dreamt of for the last many decades – peace, prosperity, good governance and rule of law.

Rao Akbar Ali Saqi, Senior Vice President, PML-N, in Al Ain, says that the country has been passing through a difficult time. “He (Sharif) has the experience of of running the government twice. In the last tenure, Shahbaz Sharif (brother of Nawaz) has proved successful as chief minister in Punjab. We are hopeful and assured that Nawaz Sharif and his party will strive hard for the country’s development with their experience,” he remarks.
Responding to a question regarding the challenges the country has been facing on various fronts, the local leader of PML-N says that “there are many challenges, like law and order situation in different areas in the country from Quetta to Peshawar, scarcity of electricity resulting in the shortfall of industrial production and inability to meet the challenges of export targets and many more. But all these problems will be tackled as he has enough experience and a dedicated team to achieve the good results,” he adds.
Muhammed Javed expresses his deep satisfaction at the victory of PML-N and termed it is the result of the good character of Nawaz Sharif and his experience in galvanising the masses. “We were optimistic about the victory of Nawaz Sharif but were concerned about Imran Khan’s huge public rallies. But he had no experience and his blunt language resulted in him getting less seats as he was dreaming to be the next Prime Minister,” he remarks.
“In the last two terms, Nawaz had ruled for four-and-a-half years but in the next five years he will achieve what he could not in the past two terms. This victory will be a turning point for the country’s fate and the people of Pakistan will see the development they twere dreaming of in the last 60 years,” Javed assures.
