Nawaz Sharif, the leader of the PML-N and currently living in self-imposed exile in London due to health reasons, will reportedly return to Pakistan in September, according to federal minister Javed Latif.
Speaking at a press conference in Lahore, Latif claimed that Nawaz’s absence prevented Pakistani politics from having a “fair playing field.” He said the people had expressed their opinion and now wished for Nawaz’s return.
Latif stated that the PML-N would not permit the party leader to return to prison after his release since the group believed “injustice” had been done to it.
He said that Saqib Nisar, a former chief judge of Pakistan, had ordered Nawaz to be disqualified. Imran Khan, the leader of the PTI, was criticised by Latif, who also questioned whether those who “removed” Nawaz and helped Imran become powerful had still not learnt their lesson.”Even now, some individuals are still manipulating Imran. We are fully informed.”
Latif asserted that Imran continued to receive backing from “a few people,” and that if not, Imran would not have travelled to Banigala and would have remained in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
