Karachi: Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif left for the United Kingdom after proper court and government permission, not as a result of a jailbreak, Caretaker Federal Information and Broadcasting Murtaza Solangi said on Saturday.

Murtaza Solangi emphasized that upon his return to Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif would be treated in accordance with the law and constitution.

The minister remarked that some individuals appeared to be intentionally creating uncertainty, but the caretaker government had a clear stance on the matter.

He made these remarks while talking to the media at Karachi Press Club on Saturday.

Solangi stated that Nawaz Sharif, a three-time former prime minister, had not disclosed which court he would approach upon his return. When questioned about the specifics of Nawaz Sharif's legal actions upon return, Solangi declined to speculate, emphasizing that it was Nawaz Sharif himself who would address such inquiries.

Regarding election-related questions, Solangi reiterated that the caretaker administration would ensure equal opportunities for all registered political parties to participate in the electoral process.

Solangi reaffirmed the caretaker government's commitment to fulfilling its constitutional obligations and providing all necessary resources to the Election Commission to conduct the elections.

On the topics of rupee appreciation and fuel prices, Minister Solangi clarified that the current administration did not influence pricing mechanisms, which were linked to global market rates. He suggested that there was a possibility of reduced petroleum product prices due to the strengthening local currency, which would benefit the public in terms of lower prices. Solangi also highlighted concerns about power theft and the burden it placed on other consumers, advocating for a change in the current recovery mechanism.

Solangi emphasized that the interim government's primary goals were to stabilize the national economy, prevent a default situation, and reduce political tensions. While legislation was not within their purview, they were committed to addressing current issues to the best of their abilities.
