Nawaz Sharif becomes lifetime leader of PML-N

"PML-N bigwigs on Tuesday, during a meeting called to choose an interim party president, elected Nawaz Sharif as "[the party's] Quaid (leader) for life".

In 1997, he first became the chief minister of Punjab in 1997 and bagged the seat twice in 2008. Nawaz was removed from the post of PML-N president by the apex court on February 22.

The Central Working Committee of the PML-N met in Lahore to elect Shehbaz Sharif as party's acting president.

The CWC also elected the former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif as the "PML-N's Quaid for life". "Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif is a "favourite" to become the party's interim president on Tuesday", he confirmed.

Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb said the PML-N will announce the name of its new party president tomorrow, state-run Radio Pakistan quoted her as saying.

"It elicited a resounding approval from the CWC", the ex-premier's daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif tweeted. Vow to work day in and day out to come up to the expectation of the party leadership & workers.

"The party constitution allows committee members to appoint an acting president of the party who would then overlook the election of the party president within 45 days of his/her election".

The Sharif clan and their supporters have repeatedly denied allegations of corruption, suggesting Nawaz is the victim of a conspiracy driven by Pakistan's powerful military establishment.

Elections Act 2017 was pushed through the upper and lower houses of the parliament earlier and had paved the way for Nawaz to resume his position as party president after being disqualified in the Panama Papers case. She said that the PML-N stands united today and not a single member has parted ways with it.

The apex court's verdict was in response to 17 petitions challenging the controversial Elections Act 2017, which had been bulldozed through parliament past year to pave the way for Nawaz's return to the PML-N's helm as party president.

If appointed, Shahbaz will lead the PML-N in the 2018 parliamentary polls.

The petitioner submitted that a political party can not be registered under the name of a person who stood disqualified as a member of parliament.
