Islamabad: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Saturday that he firmly believes that democracy is the future of Pakistan.

Pakistan came into being through a democratic process, Radio Pakistan quoted Sharif as saying while voting in civic elections in Lahore.

Sharif said the massive participation in the democratic process is proof of the Pakistan Muslim League-N’s (PML-N) belief in the constitution and law.

He said there is no other road to progress and development but adherence to democratic values.

Sri Lanka’s president is ordering Parliament to reconvene Nov. 14, when lawmakers will get the chance to hold a confidence vote on the nation’s former strongman who has been named prime minister.

The announcement made in a decree Sunday comes amid a political crisis in the South Asian island nation.

President Maithripala Sirisena dismissed Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and his Cabinet and replaced him with former strongman Mahinda Rajapaksa last month. He also suspended Parliament in an apparent attempt to give Rajapaksa time to muster support to survive any no-confidence vote.

Political opponents, rights groups and foreign governments including United States have urged Sirisena to summon the houses immediately and end the crisis.
