I am not interested in becoming Prime Minister: Ch Nisar

ISLAMABAD: In an interview to Saleem Safi on Geo News programme 'Jirga,' PML-N Stalwart Ch Nisar said he is certain that he can continue to peacefully coexist with both Nawaz Sharif and his brother, Shehbaz, in the Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N).

"I was repeatedly offered a position in the newly formed cabinet but I declined the proposition," he said. 

"I am the senior-most member of the PML-N after Nawaz and was many times given the option to become the prime minister but I don't have any interest in designations," he said, adding that he doesn't have the temperament or tendency to make the kind of 'compromises' required for the job.  

Responding to a question about his friendship with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan, he said he has never unduly favoured PTI or Imran. 

"I was never included in the consultations about allowing the PTI to enter the red zone," he said. "It was a decision taken by the government which added to my differences with the party."
