Pakistan: ECP asks PML-N to replace Nawaz Sharif as party leader

The opposition has decried Sharif's continued role in the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) after his disqualification by the apex court in the Panama Papers case.

Pakistan's former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif continued a slow, defiant procession down the ancient Grand Trunk Road Thursday, inching closer to his eastern stronghold of Lahore in a bid to rally supporters after his ouster. However, he had to review the decision due to fears that Punjab, which is the power house of the country, would face problems in the absence of Mr Shahbaz as Chief Minister, according to sources in the PML-N.

Pakistan's ousted premier Nawaz Sharif said on Wednesday that he wants Shahid Khaqan Abbasi to continue as Prime Minister till the completion of the PML-N government's tenure.

The Punjab law minister said that Nawaz Sharif lived in hearts of workers and this spirit to be remembered for decades.


Tehmina Durrani, the fourth wife of Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif, has voiced her protest over her husband being given the responsibility of tightening security measures for former prime minister Nawaz Sharif two-day's rally from Islamabad to Lahore. PML-N leaders are in the process of making arrangements for more supporters to attend the rally, and as the convoy sets off towards Lahore once again.

Sharif had stepped down after the Supreme Court disqualified him for failing to declare "receivable" salary from a UAE-based company of his son in his 2013 nomination paper. He added, 'A divide is being witnessed in the ruling party'. He said Sharif will address the crowd and then spend the night at a lodge. He asked the people to make a pledge to guard their mandate so that elected representative are not removed through undemocratic ways. The Afghan leader expressed satisfaction over the smooth transition and said that it was good for democracy of Pakistan, the statement said.

Several intelligence agencies issued a threat alert that terrorist organisations were planning an attack at the rally.

The cavalcade of Nawaz Sharif accelerated while heading to the town of Jhelum on the GT Road on Thursday leaving the ousted prime minister much ahead of his followers.
