PAT challenges Election Bill 2017 in LHC

Pakistan's former prime minister Nawaz Sharif speaks during a news conference in Islamabad Pakistan

Pakistan's ruling party, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), reinstated him as party leader on October 3.

The PTI chief said that while the Sharif family had not submitted any evidence or money trail before the apex court during the Panama Papers case, he had done so in the disqualification case against him - a statement so far found wanting by the Supreme Court, which has directed him to establish, beyond a doubt, how a considerable sum of money was transferred to Khan's ex-wife, Jemima Khan. The vote was more of a formality as PML-N has a vast majority.

The Representation of Peoples Act 1976 bars anyone who is ineligible to become a member of parliament from holding office in a political party.

The law was passed to allow the party to re-elect Sharif as its head, on the eve of a party convention called for the express goal of electing Sharif to the post.

According to the rules of the election commission, a disqualified leader could not lead a political front however, Electoral Reforms Bill 2017 that was enacted yesterday (October 2nd) has repealed the sections.

"You are risking the country's democracy over one person", he said, adding "You have attacked the Supreme Court with a rocket launcher". He was also forced to step down as president of PML-N, though he kept control of the party and installed Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, a loyalist, as prime minister.

The premier said he is proud to be among the few people who witnessed the moment Sharif took his place as the party chairman for the first time.

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif's daughter Maryam Nawaz on Tuesday said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) head and her father Nawaz Sharif continues to dominate Pakistani politics.

Minister of State Talal Chaudhry told media that Sharif will remain chief of PML-N.

He also remarked that JI is working against corruption in the country.

Sharif's election has temporarily healed the rifts within the party which appeared on the verge of defections after his ouster.

Members of the opposition also chanted slogans against Nawaz Sharif. They have pleaded to the LHC to have the law declared null and void.
