The former prime minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif is ready to return to his own country after the fall of Imran Khan’s government. It is likely that his brother Shahbaz Sharif will be coronated as the new Prime Minister of the country today around 8 pm
It is expected that Sharif will return from London after Eid, which will fall in the first week of May.
Charges against Nawaz Sharif
Mian Javed Latif said a decision on PML-N supremo and the three-time Prime Minister Sharif’s anticipated return will be discussed with the coalition partners.
Several corruption charges were launched against the former PM of Pakistan. The Supreme Court’s decision in the Panama Papers case forced Nawaz Sharif to leave the office in July 2017.
He moved to London in November 2019 after the Lahore High Court granted him a four-week permission allowing him to go abroad for his treatment.
In the Al-Azizia Mills corruption case, Nawaz got a clean chit. In that case, he was sentenced to seven years in Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat jail.
Election only solution
The coalition doesn’t like to last longer than six months. The only solution to the current political upheaval in Pakistan is to hold a fresh election.
The country has been facing several difficulties regarding elections, such as the operation of electronic voting machines (EVMs) and overseas voting rights. These are the two issues to be addressed at the earliest.
The possibility of Sharif’s return to Pakistan is being discussed after Imran Khan became the country’s first prime minister to be deposed in a no-confidence vote early Sunday.
The PML-N played a vital role in the ousting of Imran Khan. The return of Nawaz Sharif will definitely boost the morale of the PML-N and its allies. The former PM of Pakistan must share his experience after his return to the country to strengthen his party and allies. His advice would be invaluable in dealing with difficult situations and successfully running the government.
Elections are on the card. But the democratic government in Pakistan always derails in the midterms. The return of Nawaz Sharif may change the fortunes of his brother Shahbaz Sharif, who is likely to take an oath as prime minister of Pakistan tonight.
