Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Thursday that the mandate has been snatched from the people of the country.

The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz supremo made the remarks during a meeting with party leaders at Adiala jail in Rawalpindi.

Nawaz Sharif is currently completing his jail sentence after he was convicted by the accountability court in a case pertaining to the Sharif family's Avenfield properties in London.

During the meeting, the three-time Prime Minister also rejected the results of the general election 2018, in which Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has taken a lead.

Despite the poor performance of PTI's government in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Imran Khan was handed victory on a plate.

Sharif said that Khan no longer holds the same position that he did in 2013.

Nawaz Sharif reiterated that he firmly adheres to his "respect for vote" stance, adding that he is standing for the restoration of civil supremacy.
