Shehbaz Sharif considers contesting elections from 3 constituencies in Karachi

LAHORE: PML-N President and Punjab CM Shehbaz Sharif on Tuesday apologized for misogynist remarks made by leaders of his party against female workers of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.
The veteran politician, during a meeting with the Council of Pakistan Newspaper Editors (CPNE), issued an apology to ‘anyone hurt by Sanaullah’s remarks.’
The Punjab CM, in a tweet, said any statement demeaning women was ‘highly irresponsible.’
“We have to maintain decency and element of respect in political discourse,” wrote Shehbaz.
“I apologize for anti-women remarks made by some party leaders.”
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) lawmaker Murad Raas earlier today had submitted a resolution in the Punjab Assembly condemning provincial Sanaullah’s remarks. The resolution called for Sanaullah’s immediate dismissal from the Law Ministry and demanded an apology over his ‘derogatory’ remarks towards female participants of a PTI rally in Lahore on April 29.
