Pakistan Supreme Court Strikes Law Allowing Nawaz Sharif To Chair Party

Pakistan Supreme Court Strikes Law Allowing Nawaz Sharif To Chair Party

Earlier, the Supreme Court (SC) of Pakistan disqualified Nawaz Sharif as president of the ruling PML-N in the verdict regarding petitions against Election Act of 2017.

(Dunya News) - Speaking to Dunya News following annulment of Election Act-2017 by the apex court, Federal Minister of Information and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz's (PMLN) leader Marriyum Aurangzeb stated that such verdicts would only strengthen narrative of Nawaz Sharif.

Sharif, 68, was disqualified by the apex court in the Panama Papers case in July 2017 under Article 62 for failing to declare a receivable salary as an asset.

Faisal Chaudhry, a lawyer for one of the 17 petitioners who sought Sharif's removal as party head, said the court decision includes Sharif-nominated candidates for the Senate election.

The former Prime Minister asserted his family would remain steadfast in the pursuit of its mission despite the use of underhand tactics by opponents, Geo News reported. As a result, the Elections Act 2017 was passed by Parliament. It also pleaded that direction issued in Panamagate verdict to the NAB regarding filing the three reference should be declared null and void.

Sharif has said his removal from office was part of a political conspiracy against him, and in recent weeks he and his party have waged a war of words against the judiciary.

"Nawaz Sharif will devise the strategy of the PML-N and he will take all decisions", she said.

The video message came shortly after a three-judge Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar barred Nawaz Sharif from heading the PML-N.

"He will also become Prime Minister of the country".
