ISLAMABAD, Nov 3 (APP): Secretary General Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Senator Iqbal Zafar Jhagra on Tuesday said results of local government elections were validation of the transparency and fairness of general elections of 2013.

Talking to APP outside the Parliament House, he said results of elections were also validation of the government’s policies initiated for the welfare of the general masses.

He urged the opposition parties to accept the results of the elections as their all demands regarding deployment of army, rangers and police personnel were accepted by the government.

“Decision in the national interest must be accepted without wastage of time,” he added.

To a question, he expressed the hope that the PML-N would show same performance in the second phase of the Local Government Elections.

He said that healthy criticism on the government’s polices would be welcomed, however, criticism for the sake of criticism is not a healthy attitude.
