“The Muslim League has won and established Pakistan and it is the Muslim League whose duty it is now, as Custodian of the sacred trust, to construct Pakistan.”
Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah
Our vision is shaped by Pakistan and Pakistan alone, and the interests of Pakistan and its people always come first. Pakistan is paramount for us all, as the country created by the Muslim League under the great leadership of the Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. As inheritors of this legacy of the freedom struggle, we have to promote the vision of our founding fathers, Quaid-i-Azam and Allama Muhammad Iqbal.
Promoting pride in Pakistan, projecting history of its Freedom Movement and respect for its Founding Fathers is the corner stone of our vision.

· The PML also feels that the President and the Secretary General should not hold more than two successive terms of their respective elected offices, and both have voluntarily announced their decision to step down upon expiry of their term.
