Nawaz Sharif may leave Pakistan within a month, predicts top leader

*ISLAMABAD - Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif may leave Pakistan within a month, top political leader has predicted.*

*Sharif has been sentenced to seven years in prison after an accountability court convicted him in the Al-Azizia reference. However, PPP Senator Rehman Malik thinks that he won’t stay in jail for long and will soon leave the country.*

“I saw his facial reactions. He doesn’t seem well,” said PPP senator. “My prediction as a political worker is that his conviction could be overturned in a month or so and he might even leave the country for medical treatment abroad.”

Talking about Nawaz’s younger brother and PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif, Malik said, “Shehbaz is a lucky guy.” Malik said that Shehbaz was finally chosen as the Public Accounts Committee chairman after being elected the Leader of the Opposition in Parliament. “It’s a good thing, if he’s being able get things done in his favour.”

When asked if the murder of the former MQM MNA is a conspiracy to disturb Karachi’s law and order situation, Malik said, “every murder is a conspiracy, especially a political one.”
