LAHORE: PML-N Senior Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Friday reiterated her demand for accountability of former premier Imran Khan and uniform standards of justice before elections are held in the country.

Addressing a PML-N workers convention in Faisalabad on Friday, Maryam complained how the women's enclosure was set up far from the stage.
