PML - N first response over the SC verdict on NAB law
Nawaz Sharif, the leader of the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N), is set to make his return to Pakistan, according to a statement by the party's spokesperson in London. This decision comes in the wake of a Supreme Court (SC) verdict regarding amendments to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
The spokesperson emphasized that the PML-N is not concerned about the implications of this verdict and has chosen to proceed with Nawaz Sharif's return as scheduled on October 21.
During a media interaction in London, PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif and Chief Organizer Maryam Nawaz's spokesperson, Muhammad Zubair, expressed their anticipation of the Supreme Court's decision on the NAB Amendments case.
Zubair underlined that the party has no objections or reservations concerning this particular judicial ruling. It's clear that the PML-N is committed to its plan for Nawaz Sharif's return despite the legal developments.
Earlier in the day, the Supreme Court of Pakistan struck down the amendments made to the NAB laws that had been introduced during the tenure of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM)-led government. This decision, made in a majority 2-1 verdict, resulted from a petition by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan challenging the amendments.
Consequently, graft cases against various political figures, including Nawaz Sharif, Asif Ali Zardari, and Yousuf Raza Gilani, will be revived and referred to accountability courts, marking a significant turn of events in Pakistan's political landscape
