Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz workers protest against Nawaz Sharif's disqualification

Never wished to gain power with army’s help Imran

She also added that this is a unique decision and it has had a unique procedure but the way this case has taken place is not normal.

Speaking to a Pakistani daily, Dawn, many Opposition leaders have congratulated the courts, saying that this is a true example of Pakistan's vibrant democracy.

The Pakistan supreme court also ordered a case be filed against Sharif.

The apex court asked the Election Commission to denotify Nawaz Sharif. Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafiq had earlier tweeted that "This is not accountability, it is revenge".

The PM stepped down from his post "despite reservations", according to the PM house, reported Pakistani media.

However, the court-appointed investigators in July concluded a significant disparity existed between the Sharif family's declared wealth and its known sources of income. The documents also included a portfolio of upscale London properties. He too has resigned.

The unanimous 5-0 verdict in the landmark Panama Papers case was made on Friday (28 July), bringing an end to more than a year of political drama in Pakistan.

Nisar has also held the "Senior Minister" position, equivalent to the Deputy Prime Minister position.

The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Friday disqualified Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for failing to disclose his un-withdrawn receivables constituting assets from UAE-based Capital FZE in his nomination papers for the 2013 elections.

Pakistan's national assembly will vote on the candidate Sharif chooses, but it is likely that candidate will win, because Sharif's party, the PML (N), has a strong majority. "He needs to decide by tonight to resign so he can maintain dignity".

There was heavy security around the court premises and the twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi were put on high alert in anticipation of the verdict.

The political situation in Pakistan has been bumpy ever since 1947, with four democratically elected governments thrown away by military dictators, one Prime Minister was murdered while another was hanged by the judiciary, and another dismissed by the Supreme Court.

Former information minister Marryium Aurangzeb said that Sharif would make a comeback for the fourth time soon.

The young Sharif is now chief minister of powerful Punjab province, the Sharif family stronghold.
