Pakistan poll panel asks PML-N to appoint new party leader

Pakistan poll panel asks PML-N to appoint new party leader

Mr Sharif, 67, resigned during his third stint as prime minister after the supreme court ruled on July 28 that he should be disqualified. Sharif has repeatedly said he never received any of that money. "The honorable judges sent me home". The roadshow via the iconic Grand Trunk Road, which links a large part of South Asia from Bangladesh to Afghanistan, came despite security threats and drew thousands of Sharif supporters on their way to the provincial capital of Punjab. In a show of strength, Sharif was accompanied by hundreds of his supporters.

Ahmed said police were still investigating who was behind the Monday bombing.

Security has been heightened in Lahore ahead of the arrival of Sharif as PML-N members believe that the Sunday explosion of a fruit-laden parked truck here was meant to target the former Prime Minister's convoy that was scheduled to pass on way to Lahore.

Sharif has a history of rocky relations with the military, but since his removal he has exercised restraint in commenting on the sensitive issue of civil-military relations.

"You will know the answers to these questions soon", he said.

"Nawaz Sharif is still our prime minister", said worker Niaz Ahmad, who wore a lion look-alike costume, and chanted, "Lion, Lion!" referring to the election symbol of Sharif's political party. However, he had to review the decision due to fears that Punjab, which is the power house of the country, would face problems in the absence of Mr Shahbaz as Chief Minister, according to sources in the PML-N.

After around four months, a verdict was reserved by the top court in February and was delivered on April 20 that ordered for formation of a six-member Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to probe the first family.

"God willing, I will remain active".

Qamar Zaman Kaira of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) said that there could be around 10,000 people with Sharif. He has vowed to get justice for eight of his supporters killed in anti-government rallies in 2014.
