Pak PM Ashraf says democracy ‘only solution’ to ensure country’s progressIslamabad, Jan 3 : Pakistan's Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf has said that the democratic system, protected by the constitution is the best system to ensure progress and prosperity of the country.

He said that the democratic process is only controlled by the constitution and the elected parliament is custodian of this process, the Daily Times reports.

While addressing a function in Islamabad, Ashraf also said that those who are giving lecture on democracy and reforms, should prove their worth and show what had they done for democracy in the past in Pakistan.

According to the paper, he said that it was to the credit of the PPP that its leaders Zulfikar Ali Bhutto gave the right of vote to the people and started the democratic process in the country.

Ashraf also pointed out that the present elected government restored real democracy in the country after a nine-year-long dictatorship following 2008 elections, the report added. (ANI)
