Pakistan’ Ex-PM Nawaz Sharif to Again Head PML-N Party Amid Infighting

Pakistan’s three-time former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will again head the ruling PML-N in May to save the party from the vagaries of intense infighting.

He had left the post of the party chief seven years back after he was disqualified by the Pakistan Supreme Court.

According to the Pakistan media, 74-year-old Nawaz Sharif is expected to be elected as the president of the ruling PML-N party on May 11.

PML-N Punjab president Rana Sanaullah told Pakistani newsmen, “A resolution was passed at the party meeting today to make the elder Sharif PML-N president to undo the injustice meted out to him (Nawaz) in 2017 by the Supreme Court.”

Nawaz is currently on a five-day private visit to China.

Internal tensions and tussles continue in the PML-N party in Punjab and at the federal level, The Express Tribune newspaper said.

Several prominent leaders of the party, including Sanaullah, portfolio-less Federal Minister Javed Latif, Senator Javed Abbasi, and former Senator Asif Saeed Kirmani, have publicly criticised the present leadership of the party.
