Twitter Wars: Hashtags trend on Twitter following SC's verdict against Nawaz Sharif

NAB’s new references are old wine in new bottle

Sharif, 67, who had been disqualified to act not only as prime minister but also president of his party by the Supreme Court in July past year in the whistleblower Panama Papers scandal, was however re-elected as the president of his Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz group) in line with an election reforms bill adopted by the parliament in October last.

By Z A Balti [Public domain], via Wikimedia CommonsAccording to local reports from Pakistan, the chief justice said that since a party head is powerful and political parties control the government, therefore it is mandatory for a party head to fulfill the requirements of Article 62 and 63.

Faisal Chaudhry, a lawyer for one of the 17 opposition party petitioners who sought Sharif's removal as party head, said the court decision invalidated all of Sharif's decisions since last July, including the candidates he nominated for the Senate election.

The court ordered the Election Commission of Pakistan to remove Sharif as head of the PML-N and ordered that "all steps taken, orders passed, directions given and documents issued" by him since his disqualification as prime minister previous year "are also declared to have never been taken, passed, given or issued in the eyes of the law". SC has also annulled all decisions made by Nawaz Sharif as the party head.

According to an official statement released by the FDA, kratom may not appear as an ingredient on those product labels. But she is also an advocate for stronger consumer-protection rules in regard to the substance.

Reacting to the Supreme Court's latest ruling, Talal Chaudhry, a PML-N lawmaker and deputy interior minister, said that the decision will "bring no change".

Pakistan's Interior Ministry rejected on Tuesday last week's request by anti-corruption authorities to impose a travel ban on former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family members. The final verdict in the case was announced on 28 July 2017, with the Supreme Court announcing its unanimous decision for disqualifying the Prime Minister from holding public office.

With the judgement, it is possible that the Senate elections scheduled for March 3 will have to be postponed.

Sharif has served as prime minister twice before and each time was removed from office - in 1993 by presidential order and in 1999 by a military coup that saw him jailed and later exiled before returning when General Pervez Musharraf stepped down.

The verdict will not affect the PML-Ns registration as a party.

"How can a person who cannot even become a union councilor become a party chief?" he asked, alleging that the PML-N had tried to use parliament to pass a law (the Elections Act 2017) to suit their needs.
