  1. SARGODHA: Maryam Nawaz, daughter of deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif, urged party supporters to join social media platforms to support and defend her father in the virtual space. The former first daughter told crowd on Saturday that she has brought Pakistan?s trial, not Nawaz Sharif?s, to the court of the public. Maryam Nawaz addressing public gathering in Sargodha Addressing a social media workers? convention here, she lamented that the recent decision by the Supreme Court disqualifying Nawaz Sharif as the president of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) ridiculed the people's vote. "This joke does not just ridicule PML-N, or Nawaz Sharif. It [ridicules] you, the public," she said. "This is a dictatorship. First, [they] disqualified Nawaz for not taking salary from his son, then [they] stripped him of party presidency." The former first daughter reiterated her earlier rallying call and asked the people to not follow or believe those who hatch conspiracies against democracy or the government. "Nawaz Sharif is fighting your war. He is fighting for the sanctity of your vote." She added that the people have to fall behind Nawaz and participate in his struggle as that "is the people's struggle". The gold crown presented to Maryam Nawaz in Sargodha Maryam was earlier presented with a gold crown weighing 20 tolas by Sargodha Mayor Malik Aslam Naveed, as a gift from the people of Sargodha. She later said she would donate the crown to an organisation working for orphans.

The party had a high-level meeting at the Punjab House to discuss the situation after Nawaz?s disqualification by the Supreme Court on Wednesday. Maryam Nawaz has ?the best Chanay ever? in Lahore?s Malipura ?This is the best chanay pathooray I?ve ever tried,? she said, and handed Rs1000 to the stall owner While important discussions were held, the former premier telling a joke to his workers and party leaders was also a highlight of the meeting. ?Listen to a joke about horses by Mian Saheb,? tweeted daughter Maryam Nawaz.
  3. LAHORE: Pakistan People?s Party Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto on Thursday said that the law is not person-specific, adding that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and former military ruler Pervez Musharraf will both have to face accountability. The PPP chairman was addressing workers in Lahore, where he criticised Nawaz's statements following his disqualification as the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz chief. The PPP chairman further said that the decisions of the Supreme Court will have to be considered but added that it reflects poorly if decisions are taken against politicians and not against military dictators. While reflecting on the turmoil ruling PML-N is facing due to back-to-back disqualification of Nawaz, the PPP leader said that the system is in no danger only the ruling party is facing issues. Nawaz Sharif, who was disqualified as the head of his party by the Supreme Court on Wednesday, has said that the recent decisions of the apex court are "person-specific". Talking to the media outside the accountability court hearing corruption cases against him and his family on Thursday, Nawaz said yesterday's decision was not an unexpected one for him. "You know they first paralysed the executive and snatched its authority," he said, adding that Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said the same in Parliament recently. "Now with yesterday's decision, they?ve done the same with Parliament," said the three-time premier. In the aftermath of the apex court's verdict, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) earlier today said the PML-N's nominees can contest the upcoming Senate polls as independent candidates. The apex court announced its verdict on petitions challenging the Elections Act 2017 on Wednesday, ruling that a person disqualified under Article 62 and 63 cannot serve as the head of a political party.
  4. 'PML-N made Nawaz party president when he was supposed to answer for money he has invested abroad,' Imran said-Photo: File LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan said on Thursday that Nawaz Sharif had already been disqualified by the Supreme Court, hence it is no surprise he had to quit as president of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). "Nawaz had to go," said Imran while addressing the media, adding that whether the PML-N crumbles or not is not the real issue. Imran further mocked Nawaz by saying that he is complaining and crying after being removed from his post. ?PML-N made Nawaz party president when he was supposed to answer for money he has invested abroad,? the PTI chairman said, alleging that Nawaz invested Rs300 billion in 15 companies abroad. Instead of answering for his investments abroad, Nawaz produced a letter from the Qatari prince, Imran lamented. Nawaz terms recent Supreme Court decisions person-specific Addressing the media, former PM said Wednesday's Supreme Court decision disqualifying him as PML-N president was not unexpected Slamming other PML-N leaders and aides of Nawaz, the PTI chief said all of them know Nawaz?s money is actually looted money. The incumbent prime minister also helped former finance minister Ishaq Dar escape, Imran claimed. Vowing to rid the country of ?corrupt elements?, Imran reiterated the country is being controlled by a mafia which appoints similarly corrupt people to serve them. Imran?s comments come in response to the Supreme Court decision, which on Wednesday struck down a specific clause of the Elections Act 2017. As a result, Nawaz was de-notified as the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz president.
  5. The Federal Judicial Complex in Islamabad where the hearings take place. Photo: Geo News ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and daughter Maryam will be appearing before the accountability court shortly for the hearing of the corruption references against them. Nawaz's son-in-law MNA Capt (retd) Safdar is already present at the court. Following his disqualification by the Supreme Court in the Panama Papers case on July 28, 2017, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) filed three references ? Al-Azizia Steel Mills, Flagship Investment Ltd and Avenfield properties in London ? against the Sharif family. At the last hearing of the case on February 13, Accountability Court-I Judge Mohammad Bashir had rejected the suspects' request to be exempted from appearance owing to a visit to London. Relatedly, on Wednesday, the Supreme Court struck down a specific clause of the Elections Act 2017, which led to Nawaz's re-ascent as party president following his disqualification. As a result, Nawaz has been de-notified as the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz president.
  6. ISLAMABAD: Maryam Nawaz, the daughter of the former prime minister and the leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), said late Wednesday she is surprised at the wisdom of those who consider themselves wise. Responding to the verdict by the Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP) over petitions challenging the Elections Act 2017, wherein Sharif, a person disqualified under Article 62 and 63, was disqualified to serve as the head of a political party, she asked: "Should I call this a pigeon that closes its eyes or fooling oneself?" The ex-First Lady stressed the position and importance that Nawaz Sharif holds in his party, the PML-N. "Will the party members stop thinking of Nawaz Sharif as their leader after this ruling?" Highlighting that the decision would do nothing other than to strengthen Sharif's story, Maryam Nawaz noted that negative issues such as this ruling would only boost upwards the popularity of Sharif and PML-N. Nawaz Sharif is still the prime minister of [his party member's] hearts, she said.
  7. ISLAMABAD: A key meeting of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has been summoned at Punjab House Islamabad on Thursday, party officials confirmed, which would be presided over by former premier Nawaz Sharif. Sources said the meeting would ponder over the party's strategy after Wednesday's verdict by the Supreme Court in the Elections Act case, ruling that a person disqualified under Article 62 and 63 cannot serve as the head of a political party.

  9. Nawaz Sharif will no longer remain the party?s president after SC verdict-Photo: File ISLAMABAD/KARACHI: A three-member bench of the Supreme Court of Pakistan headed by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar on Wednesday ruled that a disqualified individual cannot head a political party. Nawaz disqualified as PML-N president: SC announces verdict in Elections Act case All decisions taken by Nawaz as PML-N president stand null and void The decision by the three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar is considered another blow to the ruling Pakistan Muslim League?Nawaz (PML-N) as Nawaz Sharif will no longer remain the party?s president. As a result of the verdict, all decisions taken by Nawaz Sharif as PML-N?s president stand null and void. Analysts and politicians shared their views with Geo News on the verdict, what lays ahead for the PML-N and whether Senate elections could be delayed. 'Bigger verdict than Panama' Awami Muslim League Chief Sheikh Rasheed said the verdict in the Elections Act 2017 case is bigger than the Panama Papers verdict. Rasheed added that in light of Nawaz?s disqualification as PML-N president, Lodhran's election can be challenged and it remains to be seen ? who will be Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi?s replacement?. ?Nawaz Sharif?s politics has come to end now,? claimed the AML chief. 'PML-N shouldn't have elected disqualified person' Lawyer Farogh Naseem said that according to points in the verdict being announced by the media, the apex court has not said anything regarding Senate elections and whether they will be delayed. When asked if the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) will have the right to decide on Senate elections, Naseem said the ECP doesn?t have any right to delay elections. It remains to be seen whether their party tickets are cancelled or the candidates withdraw [from elections], he added. ?They shouldn?t have elected disqualified person,? the lawyer said when asked what lies ahead for the ruling party. Asked whether Lodhran by-election will also stand null and void, he said he can?t comment on it before reading the judgment. 'Don?t think SC will disenfranchise an entire province' Analyst Muneeb Farooq said it is unlikely that the Supreme Court will disenfranchise an entire province by declaring all Senate tickets awarded to PML-N null and void. ?I don?t think Supreme Court will deprive a whole province and a huge party from contesting Senate elections,? he said. Farooq said that there is still time in Senate elections and a delay might not be needed [for PML-N to contest elections]. This remains a question whether another round of candidate list will be submitted by PML-N or not, he added.

The remarks by Nawaz came as the Supreme Court concluded the hearing of several petitions against the recently-passed Elections Act 2017. A three-member bench had been hearing several petitions challenging specific clauses of the act that led to Nawaz's appointment as party president following his dismissal as prime minister last year. SC concludes hearing against Elections Act, may announce short order today Chief Justice of Pakistan observed that the bench will reconvene shortly and either reserve the judgment or announce short order Appreciating the judiciary's stance regarding the Constitution, the PML-N president said that institutions earn respect through their performance. However, he said the Constitution would be brought in question if the courts start to verify laws and added that the Constitution is formed by the public's elected representatives. The former premier further said that the parliament and the institutions stay within their ambit due to the Constitution. During Wednesday's hearing, the chief justice remarked that the country's leadership is respectable, adding that the media misreported the court's remarks. Chief Justice Nisar also observed that there is no reason for the apex court to use words like thief, adding that the fallout of the issue is unacceptable. Disqualification to party president Following Nawaz's disqualification as prime minister in July 2017 in the Panama Papers case, the ruling party managed to amend the Constitution to allow the former premier to retain his chairmanship of the PML-N. As a result, the Elections Act 2017 was passed by Parliament bringing Nawaz back as the party president despite his disqualification from the National Assembly. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan, Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rashid, MNA Jamshaid Dasti, National Party and the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), among others, challenged the law for allowing a disqualified parliamentarian to become a party head. The petitions, challenging specific clauses of the Elections Act 2017, state that Nawaz's appointment as party president is in violation of Clause 5 of the Political Parties Order 2002 and Article 17 of the Constitution.

Justice Khosa made the remarks while heading a three-member bench hearing a contempt case. He observed further that several statements are being attributed to the apex court these days that were not made by the judges. Addressing Additional Attorney General (AAG) Amir Rehman during the hearing, Justice Khosa inquired if he has read the Panama Papers judgment and if it includes the use of these terms for Nawaz. The AAG replied that he has read the verdict and confirmed that it does not use these terms for the former prime minister. Justice Khosa observed that during the contempt hearing against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Senator Nehal Hashmi, the court had responded to Hashmi?s remarks that ?we will not let them live on this land? by stating that the Sicilian Mafia used to murder judges? children. Justice Khosa remarked further that the Supreme Court asked if a smuggler, killer, their or robber can head a political party, adding that certain comments of the bench are played up by the media. He remarked further that comments not uttered by the bench should not be attributed to it, adding that opinion should not be printed as news. Justice Khosa headed the five-member bench that disqualified Nawaz in its July 28 judgment in the Panama Papers case. In several public rallies following his disqualification, Nawaz and other party leaders have criticised the use of the terms ?Godfather? and ?Sicilian Mafia? for the former prime minister.
  12. Former PM Nawaz Sharif outside the accountability court hearing corruption references against him - File ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar once again rejected on Wednesday former prime minister Nawaz Sharif's plea to club the three corruption cases against him into one. Nawaz, disqualified by the Supreme Court on July 28 last year in the Panama Papers case, had filed a petition in the apex court seeking to merge the three National Accountability Bureau (NAB) references against him. That petition had been rejected by the Supreme Court registrar, after which Nawaz filed an appeal before the chief justice. Hearing the appeal in his chamber today, Chief Justice Nisar rejected the plea. Nawaz had first petitioned the apex court with the request on October 13. However, the registrar had rejected the petition, after which an appeal was filed with the chief justice. Nawaz petitions SC to again consider clubbing NAB references Nawaz in his petition stated that if a verdict is challenged, then the court has to restart proceedings on the matter Chief Justice Nisar, in an in-camera hearing on November 16, had dismissed the appeal. On Dec 2, Nawaz petitioned the Supreme Court to again consider the clubbing of the three references. The petition appealed to the apex court to consider the objections raised by the registrar and create a new bench to hear the petition. It had stated that if a verdict is challenged, then the court has to restart proceedings on the matter and pleaded the court to consider void its ruling on clubbing the references. NAB references CJP dismisses Nawaz Sharif's appeal on multiple references petition Former PM's plea had been rejected by the registrar office after which he appealed the decision In light of the Supreme Court's verdict, NAB filed three corruption references ? Al Azizia Steel Mills and Hill Metals Establishment, Avenfield properties, and offshore companies including Flagship Investment Ltd ? against Nawaz and his family in the accountability court. The accountability court on November 8 had again dismissed Nawaz's plea seeking the clubbing of three references into one, which was later challenged in the Islamabad High Court. However, the appeal was dismissed by the high court as well. The petition Nawaz's petition, submitted in October last year, pleaded the Supreme Court to halt the accountability court proceedings of the three references against the Sharif family until a single reference is filed. Nawaz Sharif pleads SC to file one corruption reference instead of three Petition terms illegal filling of three similar corruption references; calls on SC to halt trials until single reference is filed The plea was filed by Nawaz's legal team under Article 184 (3) of the Constitution. It stated that Section 9 (a) (5) of the National Accountability Ordinance holds that the reference against possession of assets beyond known sources of income should be one and not spread over several references. The petition pleaded that the Supreme Court's July 28 direction to the NAB to file three corruption references be declared illegal. The petition added that holding of several trials based on one allegation is against the basic rights of the petitioners.
  13. The PPP leader also condemned Nawaz and daughter Maryam Nawaz for ?jumping on the bandwagon of hurling abuses?-Geo News ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Aitzaz Ahsan on Tuesday slammed former prime minister Nawaz Sharif for trying to get his way by hook or by crook. ?Nawaz is standing in the middle of the city, wearing a suicide vest and threatening [everyone] to agree to do what he wants,? Ahsan said while talking to media here. The comments by the PPP leader come a day after the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz announced to debate ?conduct of judges? in the parliament stressing that every institution must work within its constitutional ambit. Better to debate in Parliament to avoid confrontation among institutions: PM Elected representatives are termed 'thieves, robbers and Godfather' in courts, Abbasi laments in his NA address ?Nawaz Sharif wants the whole building to collapse,? Ahsan said, in an apparent reference to the nascent democracy in the country. The PPP leader also condemned Nawaz and daughter Maryam Nawaz for ?jumping on the bandwagon of hurling abuses?. Addressing the National Assembly on Monday, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that to avoid confrontation among institutions it was better for the House to debate on the matter. The prime minister's comments followed his directives to members of PML-N parliamentary party that the conduct of judges will now be discussed in the Parliament. He had said that elected representatives are termed "thieves, robbers and Godfather" in the courts, lamenting that government officials are humiliated. "Does this House not have the right to legislate," Abbasi questioned. "Or will we have to seek permission to legislate.
  14. Former president General (retired) Pervez Musharraf. Photo: Geo News file KARACHI: Former president General (retired) Pervez Musharraf on Monday claimed that Shehbaz Sharif could prove to be a better prime minister than his brother and deposed premier. In an interview to a private television channel, Musharraf adviced Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz's (PML-N) President Nawaz Sharif to end his career in politics. Predicting Maryam Nawaz's future in politics, the former president claimed that her future was bleak. "Her [Maryam's] own party will not accept her as a politician," he said. "Her political future is hopeless." In a comment on the country's political situation, Musharraf said that under the present circumstances, the ruling party, Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz, will be elected in the centre in the upcoming elections, while the Pakistan Peoples Party will form the government in Sindh. The former president is facing a treason trial for clamping emergency in the country on November 3, 2007. He was barred from travelling abroad after his name was placed on the exit control list (ECL) on April 5, 2013. However, he had left for Dubai on March 16, 2018, hours after the interior ministry issued a notification to remove his name from the exit control list (ECL). He had stated that he was going abroad to get "medical treatment of a decade-old illness which has now developed several complications." In his interview, Musharraf said that he was likely to come back to Pakistan after the tenure of the present PML-N-led government ends. 'MQM does not fit in my vision' Refuting rumours of joining Muttahida Qaumi Movement - Pakistan (MQM-P), the former president said that his vision was broad and the party did not fit into it. "To think MQM-P is the representative of muhajirs is a shallow notion," he said. Jibing at the splinter groups of MQM-P, Musharraf said that none of the party's factions possesses the required leadership quality. "Dr Farooq Sattar lacks leadership qualities and the public welfare mindset and so does Mustafa Kamal," he said. He also criticised the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan for lacking a vision. "Imran also does not have a vision, but he has a charming personality."

While congratulating political rival Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan, Marriyum said: ?I hope this marriage brings peace in his life as he needs peace the most in his life.? Late on Sunday, PTI had confirmed party chairman Imran Khan?s third marriage with Bushra Riaz Wattoo, known to be his spiritual guide. "Wishing Chairman PTI Imran Khan and his wife a happy married life . May Allah bless the couple," read a tweet on PTI's official Twitter account on Sunday. The party issued pictures of Imran's nikah with Bushra Bibi, in which close relatives of the bride could be seen. Imran?s political secretary Awn Chaudhry can also be seen in the images.
