Pakistan poll panel asks PML-N to appoint new party leader


Nawaz Sharif last month stepped down from the post after the Supreme Court disqualified him from holding public office.

Though Kalsoom Nawaz successfully led the party's movement for the release of her incarcerated husband after a military coup by Gen Musharraf in 1999, she never contested election to actively part in Pak politics.

Addressing Nawaz Kaira said that he was sent home by a bench of the apex court that comprised five judges. Though Nawaz still holds sole authority to appoint anyone to any post but he consults party before major decisions.

Islamabad: A huge convoy of deposed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif leaves Islamabad, Pakistan, Wednesday, Aug. 9, 2017. "It is the people's trust that inspires Nawaz Sharif".

The court also ordered Pakistan's anti-corruption watchdog to register cases against Sharif, three of his children and several aides, including Finance Minister Ishaq Dar.

Sharif spewed fire as he addressed large groups of supporters gathered on the rally route. The Afghan leader expressed satisfaction over the smooth transition and said that it was good for democracy of Pakistan, the statement said. "Promise me you won't allow your prime minister to be humiliated this way", he said.

Not everyone who braved the sweltering heat at the rally in Islamabad supported Sharif, however.

The ECP asked the PML-N to elect a new party leader and then inform the body.

He has also planned to deliver speeches at important places where even bigger crowds of supporters are expected to turn up.

"I was not allowed to complete my third term", he said from a bomb-proof vehicle specially designed for the journey.

The general elections in Pakistan is due next year.

The guessing game regarding the law maker ended when he arrived at the Lower House of the Parliament at a time when the rally of ruling party was set to start the second leg of its journey towards Lahore.

Sharif's travel plan has upset his rival Imran Khan, who in a press conference, has alleged that Sharif was disgracing the court by challenging its decision through the roadshow.
