According to Geo News, Nawaz Sharif will lead the party’s political campaign in the upcoming elections. He has called his daughter Maryam to London.
The news of Nawaz Sharif’s return to Pakistan has also been confirmed by his brother Shahbaz Sharif. Let us tell you that this statement of Nawaz returning to Pakistan has come after a meeting of the top leadership of PML-N under the chairmanship of Nawaz in London. Meanwhile, the question is arising whether Nawaz will be arrested as soon as he comes to Pakistan or not.
Was disqualified in 2017
Nawaz Sharif has been living in exile in London since November 2019. In 2017, he was disqualified for life by the Pakistan Supreme Court for not declaring the salary received. After this he went to London. According to Geo News report, the London meeting was attended by Suleman Shahbaz, Hasan Nawaz, former federal minister Khawaja Asif, Malik Mohammad Ahmed Khan and Nasir Janjua. During the meeting in London, the party’s strategy regarding elections, Nawaz’s return and the stand of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) on elections were discussed.
Maryam can go to London next week
Last week, the former prime minister himself had confirmed during an interaction with his party workers and supporters at Stanhope House that he was returning to Pakistan in October. At the same time, Nawaz Sharif has called his daughter Maryam Nawaz to London before returning to Pakistan. According to the report, Maryam can go to London next week and will stay there for a week. During this, she will talk with Sharif on all political and constitutional aspects.
So can Nawaz contest elections now?
Nawaz can also contest elections after returning to Pakistan. Actually, Article 62 (1) (f) was amended recently. It has also been passed in the Parliament and the President has also given his approval on it. Article 62 (1) (f) has reduced the punishment of disqualification to five years. In such a situation, Nawaz Sharif can also contest elections. This has also been confirmed by former Finance Minister Ishaq Ishaq Dar.
