Lahore. Pakistan’s ruling Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz has claimed that the party will win the upcoming general elections with a thumping majority and emerge as an effective parliamentary force. Maryam’s statement came at a time when it emerged that her father and PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif may return from London and lead the party’s election campaign.
The PML-N will win the upcoming elections with a thumping majority and the party will emerge as an effective parliamentary force, the newspaper ‘The News’ quoted Maryam as saying in its report on Saturday. He called upon the party workers to start a mass contact campaign. According to reports, top leaders of the PML-N leadership are likely to meet Sharif in London soon. According to the news, the possible date of next elections, political situation in Pakistan and other issues will be discussed in the meeting.
Meanwhile, Pakistan’s Senate on Friday passed a bill to ensure that no parliamentarian is disqualified for life. The move has been described by the opposition as an attempt to clear the way for former prime minister Sharif to return to the country and participate in the elections. Sharif (73) was disqualified by a five-judge bench of the Supreme Court in 2017. Sharif was disqualified from holding public office for life following a Supreme Court ruling in 2018. Pakistan’s lower house, the National Assembly, will complete its five-year term on August 12 this year and new general elections are required to be held within 60 days, as stipulated in the Constitution of Pakistan.
