Pakistan - Nawaz Sharif steps down as PM after Supreme Court verdict
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has resigned from his post following the verdict of the Supreme Court, a PML-N spokesman told Geo News.
The Supreme Court of Pakistan ordered on Friday to disqualify Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
Announcing their verdict in the Panama Papers case, all five judges ruled to send a reference against the premier, his three children and others to an accountability court.
The court ordered the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to file a reference against the accused in an accountability court in six weeks and directed for the trial to be wrapped up within six months.
According to sources, Nawaz Sharif is chairing a meeting to decide on the appointment of a new premier.
Sharif expressed sorrow over the Supreme Court’s decision, sources told Geo News.
Sharif is likely to make the decision to appoint a new prime minister after consulting with legal experts, sources added.
Earlier, legal aides, advisers and federal ministers were present at the PM House where Sharif heard the verdict of the Panama Papers case.
Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Governors of Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa were also present in the meeting.
PML-N leaders — before the verdict’s announcement — stated that the government wants the Parliament to complete its tenure.
