LAHORE: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif is holding a meeting with his brother Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif at the latter's residence in Model Town.

Sources said the two are discussing the ongoing political situation in the country, the corruption cases being heard against Nawaz and his family, as well as affairs of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz.

Sources said Shehbaz is attempting to convince Nawaz to adopt a less confrontational approach, be it with the judiciary or the establishment. 

Moreover, the matter of appointing the party's next president will also come under discussion. Reports had stated earlier that Shehbaz would be made the PML-N president but the government recently managed to add an amendment to the new Electoral Reforms Bill which will allow even a disqualified MNA [Nawaz] to become a party president.  

Nawaz reached Lahore yesterday after residing in Islamabad for two days following his arrival in Pakistan from London on Monday morning. 

Addressing a press conference at Punjab House, Islamabad on Tuesday after his appearance at a NAB court hearing corruption cases against him, Sharif said he is not the one to flee judicial proceedings

He once again questioned the grounds of his disqualification as well as the way the corruption cases against him are proceeding.  

Sharif was disqualified by the Supreme Court on July 28 for possessing a foreign work permit which made him liable to receive a salary from a private company in UAE.
