From Nov 10, Nawaz Sharif will lead PML-N’s election campaign

4 min read

In advance of the upcoming general elections, Nawaz Sharif, the three-time former prime minister and supremo of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), will lead his party’s election campaign starting on November 10.

A grand welcome was organized by the party in Lahore’s Minar-e-Pakistan on October 21 for the former premier, who returned to Pakistan following a four-year self-imposed exile to seek medical treatment after the Lahore High Court’s approval in November 2019. He had left for London for medical treatment in November 2019.

As a three-time former prime minister, he will supervise the party’s parliamentary board that will distribute tickets, as well as leading the party’s election campaign via his countrywide tours, according to sources that spoke to Geo News.

During the first in-person meeting of the PML-N for the first time in four years held at his Jati Umra residence today, the PML-N supremo said, according to sources, that if elected, they would strengthen the judicial institutions.

In a separate statement, Ashan Iqbal, the General Secretary of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), expressed his wish that Nawaz Sharif would become the next Prime Minister of this country.

A deliberate plot and a false case have been orchestrated against Nawaz Sharif in order to remove him from electoral politics.

Earlier in the day, Geo News reported that PML-N members were planning on discussing the current state of politics, general election results, and other issues as part of the Jati Umra meeting.

Additionally, the purpose of the huddle was to discuss the upcoming general election campaign for the party, as well as the launch of the party’s manifesto.

I think it is pertinent to point out that Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) members have been roundly criticized by their political rivals for allegedly receiving ‘undue relief’ in relation to various legal cases in which they claim that the PML-N supremo has been involved.

Upon his return to Pakistan, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) has restored the former prime minister’s plea against the conviction verdicts he received by the accountability courts in the Avenfield and Al-Azizia cases, which were imposed on him prior to his return to Pakistan.

In the aforementioned cases, the ousted premier was sentenced to an accumulative 18-year jail term in connection with his removal from office.

Nawaz’ conviction in the Al-Azizia case had also been suspended by the Punjab government last week.
