Nawaz Sharif re elected head of ruling PML-N

Only inquired about Kulsoom's health during meeting with Nawaz

Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has been reelected as president of Pakistan's ruling party despite his dismissal from office by the Supreme Court.

Sharif's papers for party president in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) were submitted by PML-N leader Dr Tariq Fazal Chaudhry, while no other candidate from the party contested the election.

The achievement of United Kingdom visa becomes nearly impossible for a person who was allegedly involved in money laundering case or theft of national wealth or court has declared him disqualified as per International Law.

However, the ruling party introduced an amendment in the Election Bill 2017 allowing any disqualified legislator to hold party office.

The ousted Prime Minister was addressing PML-N's Central General Council after being elected head of the party for four years.

His political adversaries accused Sharif and his family of laundering money from Pakistan and using the sums to buy real estate in London.

The 67-year-old politician continues to face multiple corruption cases after he was rendered ineligible as prime minister and head of his party when the Supreme Court announced a controversial verdict against him.

Hadiya case: SC to examine if HC can annul marriage
The National Investigation Agency (NIA ) has submitted all the up to date details of the investigation in the Court. The bench also wondered whether the 24-year-old woman could be forced to live in her father's custody .

Nawaz Sharif said PML (N) is still the largest and the most popular party in the country.

The National Assembly of Pakistan passed the Election Reforms Bill 2017 on Monday amid protest by the opposition. Under The Representation of The People Act of 1976, a disqualified person can not hold office of a party.

Until the bill stands as law "a disqualified person will continue to control the basic business of the National Assembly", which can be unsafe for the country, the petitioner, Advocate Zulfiqar Bhutta, has argued. Talal Chaudhry said it is PML-N which has always ensured amendments in laws included by dictators. If acquitted, however, expect Mr Nawaz to use his position as party president to become the puppet master of PML-N politics.

According to PML-N sources, the new bill would be signed by the President tomorrow after which it would become a law and enable Sharif to be elected as the party chief.

Pakistan's National Accountability Bureau is set to indict former prime minister in the accountability court in three corruption and money laundering cases involving his family's offshore properties on Monday.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Sheikh Rasheed-led Awami Muslim League have also made a decision to challenge the law.
