SC ruling against Nawaz Sharif to make him stronger, say political analysts

Nawaz to hold ‘mammoth’ public meeting in city

The court said that anyone who is unable to fulfil the requirements of Articles 62 and 63 of the Constitution - which state that a member of the parliament should be "truthful" and "righteous" - can not hold any public office, including the post of a party head.

"This is Pakistan. Nawaz Sharif will run PML-N even if he is in a jail cell", said a government official from Sharif's party, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The verdict in immediate terms will affect disqualified prime minister Nawaz Sharif, who was re-elected the head of the PML-N after lawmakers bulldozed the Elections Act 2017 through parliament past year. The Panama Papers judgment had also made Sharif ineligible to head his party.

The much-awaited Election Act verdict is finally out.

"Sharif can not be pulled out of the people's heart through court decisions", he also said.

Similarly, when former military ruler Pervaiz Musharraf imposed restrictions on the PPP, a new party called PPP-Parliamentarians was created, but the decisions for that party were also taken by Benazir Bhutto.

At least 16 petitions were filed by different political parties and individuals, including the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, Awami Muslim League and Pakistan People's Party, against the parliament's legislation that allowed a disqualified person to lead a party.

"The bill was passed in the NA by the vote of all parties and can only be annulled if is contradictory to basic rights", he said.

Trudeau 'assures' India Canada won't support Khalistan
Indeed, from the moment the Canadians arrived in Amritsar , signs were evident that the chief minister wanted to reduce tensions. Trudeau, Sajjan at his side, promised to look into it, which is good news since Singh has previously refused to meet Sajjan.

While it was somewhat an expected outcome, the verdict has left many questions unanswered about the fate of decisions taken by the former three-time premier since being disqualified by the apex court on July 28, 2017.

The decision will likely force Sharif to step down as president of Pakistan's ruling Muslim League-N party and possibly end his career in politics.

Sharif is also being tried by a separate anti-corruption court on other charges - proceedings ordered by the Supreme Court last July - and could face jail when that trial winds up as soon as next month.

A delegation of the ruling party called on Mr Sharif at his Jati Umra residence and while addressing those present, the former PM welcomed the judges' stance of hailing the Constitution of Pakistan as a sacred and supreme document.

He said ECP had mandate to reschedule the Senate's elections and PML-N will have to distribute fresh tickets. He said the criticism of judiciary by the incumbent primer was unlawful.

The ex-PM complained that dictators had the Constitution remain in the trash bin for 32 years while legislators who followed the dictators became silent spectators.

"The verdict is biased, and only one person and family is being targeted", the minister said.
