Establishment has accepted Nawaz Sharif's demands: PML-N
On Wednesday, a prominent leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) stated that the establishment had accepted Nawaz Sharif's perspective, withdrawing from active involvement in politics.
PML-N Secretary General Ahsan Iqbal, during a press conference, emphasized that the narrative of the former three-time prime minister had gained acceptance, and the establishment openly declared its intention not to interfere in politics any longer. Iqbal expressed the view that both the establishment and the judiciary should collaborate to drive the country's economy forward.
He argued that Pakistan could not endure another experiment, asserting that the solution to the nation's problems lies in electing an experienced politician like Nawaz back into power. The senior PML-N leader further emphasized the importance of all stakeholders adhering to their constitutional boundaries, emphasizing that all state institutions are assets of Pakistan.
The PML-N's previous focus on holding powerful individuals accountable, which it claimed were responsible for Nawaz's removal in 2017, has now shifted towards revitalizing the country's struggling economy. With elections scheduled for the end of January, the PML-N has initiated its election campaign, with Nawaz's anticipated return from self-exile in London since 2019 playing a significant role.
The PML-N leader, who was disqualified in the Panama Papers case in 2017, is expected to arrive in Lahore on October 21 and address a rally at Minar-e-Pakistan before facing pending court cases.
In a later rally, PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif reassured that Nawaz's return to Pakistan is not for revenge but to "rescue" the country from its current crisis. Shehbaz reiterated his brother's homecoming on October 21, emphasizing Nawaz's commitment to serving the people of Pakistan and reigniting the journey towards prosperity.
