“Institutions are pillars of the state of Pakistan,” she said. “We are to stand by our institutions and support the law.”
The PM’s aide said that national interest was priority. She said the prime minister was determined with regard to the supremacy of law.
Awan said Pakistan Muslim-League-Nawaz leader Maryam Nawaz’s wish to travel abroad would be examined in accordance with the law.
She also mentioned liberating “the law tied in wishes and desires.”
Regarding the extension in army chief’s tenure, the PM’s aide said a decision in this regard would be made through a vote in the parliament.
“Politics should not be done on a key institution relating to the national defence,” she added.
Awan further said that the PTI core committee strongly disapproved the enactment of a controversial citizenship law India.
She noted that the prime minister recently showed India’s evil tactics to the world in Geneva.
