Nawaz Sharif has said his party won’t replace PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi with his brother Shahbaz Sharif, but that decision has yet to be finalized.

Sharif did not say who will now lead his ruling Pakistan Muslim League party as last month’s court decision also barred him from participating in politics.

He said he was first removed by a president in 1993, then military dictator Pervez Musharraf toppled his government in 1999 and “now the judiciary has sent me home.”

“Does Pakistan’s elected prime minister deserve to be removed in such an insulting manner?” he asked.

He reiterated that neither he and nor any of his family members were involved in corruption.

Sharif criticized the investigators in the probe against him and his family, saying “our worst opponents were part of the JIT (Joint Investigation Team)” which was appointed by the Supreme Court earlier this year.

Sharif insisted that a larger panel in the court should hear his review petition.
