Karachi, Jan. 6 (ANI): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif has said that the abolishment of the 17th Amendment is much more important than removing the ban on becoming prime minister for a third time.

Answering a question whether he was demanding the abolishment of 17th Amendment to ensure that the ban on becoming prime minister for a third time is removed, he said: "I do not know what were the reasons for linking other issues to the repeal of the 17th Amendment."

Asserting that he has not given any deadline to the government to repeal the 17th Amendment, Sharif hoped the issue would be resolved soon

"Let us see how much time it will take. It seems that it is a matter of a few days now," the Daily Times quoted him, as saying.

Speaking on the ongoing war on terror, Sharif said he believed other suggestions of parliament's resolution should also be implemented besides the launch of military operations. (ANI)
