Sharif's wife files nomination to contest his seat

Sharif's wife files nomination to contest his seat

The wife of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif might not be able to contest upcoming elections in NA-120 on the symbol of "lion" despite representing Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz.

Shahbaz is now likely to replace his brother as party chief because Pakistani law bars convicted or disqualified persons from leading a political party.

Addressing a big gathering at Gujranwala city on his rally to Lahore, 67-year-old Sharif asked his supporters to pledge to come out on the roads with him to ensure the elected prime ministers of Pakistan are not humiliated anymore.

"There is no charge of corruption or embezzlement. Did you not vote for me as your prime minister?"

Pakistan will celebrate 70 years of independence from British rule on August 14 but the country has never had a full term prime minister with numerous governments being interrupted by either military coups, judicial disqualification, or presidential decree. "Some were executed, some jailed, some handcuffed, and some exiled", he said. That has been said by the judges who disqualified me.

"Is there any court in the country to hold a dictator accountable? The people should ask them why they ousted Nawaz Sharif when he had done no corruption", he said.

Sharif in his defence said that he would personally visit the boy's home "and try to help his family for life".

Donald Trump's threat to sabotage Obamacare would generate a huge backlash for him and Republicans, according to a new poll . While around 6 in 10 overall say Trump should not use such disruptive tactics, a majority of Republicans back that approach.

"This country can not go like this". While naming Nawaz Sharif, he should tell everyone who is conspiring against him. "We would have to make sure that your vote is respected". "I was removed in a minute", he said.

Sharif, also nicknamed the Lion of Punjab, addressed the crowd from a makeshift stage behind bulletproof glass, his voice hoarse but bold as he insisted his conscience was "clean".

Sharif launched the so-called "caravan" procession from Islamabad to his eastern hometown of Lahore, despite the concerns of advisers about security.

Sharif addressed a huge rally in downtown Rawalpindi, after starting his journey from Islamabad to Lahore to project his political strength.

As news of the boy's death made national headlines, Nawaz Sharif's daughter, Maryam Nawaz, took to Twitter to express grief over the incident and said that the local PML-N leadership had been asked to provide assistance to the grieved family. He also criticised PML-N's GT Road "homecoming rally" saying no senior leader of the ruling party took part in it.

According to DawnNews, the child was among a crowd of supporters gathered to greet Nawaz Sharif as his motorcade passed through Lalamusa. That is why he reached Jhelum before the expected time. Someone tell me why I was ousted. "I would not allow anyone to trample your right to elect leaders of choice", Sharif said.
