London, Mar.13 (ANI): Notwithstanding the reconciliatory policies of President Asif Ali Zardari, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif has said he still considers the President as the biggest threat to democracy.

Rubbishing reports regarding the PML-N playing the role of a 'friendly opposition', Sharif said Zardari is 'on his knees' and that his party would continue to play the pressure tactics that had worked wonders in restoration of judges belonging to the higher judiciary and the repealing of the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO).

Speaking during a community meeting here, Sharif targeted Zardari saying the President has breached the Charter of Democracy (CoD).

"Otherwise, my views about the president will not change. It's about time for Asif Zardari to think about everything. We want to move ahead only in light of the CoD," The News quoted Sharif, as saying.

He said that the PML-N victories in the recent by-polls were a reflection of the national mood, and that the country does not need 'retrogressive politics'.

"We don't need traditional and retrogressive politics in Pakistan. If someone thinks he is all in all, he should understand there is no space for this. We are popular because the nation trusts us," Sharif said. (ANI)
