Islamabad, Feb 23: Pakistani rights activist and former president of Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) Asma Jahangir has said she had no desire to become the caretaker prime minister.
Jahangir said certain people come into power in the name of the people and then refuse to party with it.
According to the Dawn, the activist also expressed apprehensions that certain forces were trying to create chaos in the country, but added that elections would happen on time.
Jahangir also said the country’s current situation was a result of the actions taken by regimes of the past.
According to the paper, she further said it would be better if retired judges did not join the caretaker set-up.
Earlier in January, Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan had said his party would oppose the nomination of Jahangir for caretaker prime minister. (ANI)
