Nawaz Sharif elected PML-N president after six-year hiatus

Published May 28, 2024
Live: Nawaz Sharif addresses PML-N’s general council meeting after being elected party president

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was elected on Tuesday as president of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Aaj News reported.

It may be noted Nawaz was removed as the party president in 2018 after a Supreme Court bench headed by then-chief justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar ruled that an individual disqualified under Articles 62 and 63 of the Constitution could not serve as head of a political party.

Meanwhile, 11 individuals obtained nomination papers for the election of the PML-N president, including Bashir Memon, Anwar-ul-Haq Siddiqui, Ishaq Dar, Raja Muhammad Farooq, Hafiz Hafeez-ur-Rehman and Shah Ghulam Qadir.

Nawaz was elected in the meeting of the PML-N general council. Nawaz will now take over the party presidency from his younger brother Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who had earlier resigned saying that the “time has come” for his brother to “resume his rightful place” as the party president.

Unfortunate state of affairs n dismal future of country. These dynasties are deadlier than COVID, while no one mentions their NRO medals nor their attempts at destruction of judiciary. Suffer we will.

Quite a farce foisted on a hapless population. His next step should be to proclaim himself King of Punjab, and why not. Idiots will applaud.

It is a mother of surprises that Nawaz Sharif self appointed himselff as the president of his personal party. A true upset!
