Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader consulted party leaders in this regard. Moreover, the pressure from party workers on party leadership to return back to Pakistan was also considered.
However, according to sources, a suggestion to have Maryam Nawaz return to Pakistan before Sharif himself is under consideration as well.
Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz have decided to lead party's election campaign for upcoming polls. Former prime minister has ordered preparations for rallies in various cities across the country pertaining to party election campaign.
But, however, before returning back to Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif will meet doctors of her ailing wife, Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, for discussing her current condition and progress and a detailed medical check-up and a computed tomography (CT) scan of Begum Kulsoom will also be carried out.
Prior to this, Maryam Nawaz had said their return depended on the condition of Begum Kulsoom, who has been on the ventilator for a few weeks now. She had explained that she would return on the first available flight as soon her ailing mother's condition improves.
