Cheema guarding secrets of Shahbaz says Imran

The PPP leader also said that it was easier to talk to PML-N former chief Nawaz Sharif than to Shehbaz.

THE brother of ousted Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif took a small step closer to becoming prime minister today after he was named head of the ruling party before a general election due this year. Nawaz Sharif had picked Shehbaz Sharif as acting president of the party last day.

The Express Tribune quoted well-placed sources in the party asdisclosing that the party has called for a meeting of its Central Working Committee at the PML-N Secretariat here on Tuesday, where Shehbaz will be elected as the new interim party president.

According to the election commission rules, party's electoral college/ general council has to elect the party president within 40 days.

Nawaz, a three-time premier, was elevated to post of "Quaid (leader) for life" of the PML-N.

His proposal, followed by chants of "Wazir-e-Azam, Nawaz Sharif", was endorsed by Prime Minister Khaqan Abbasi, who said: "These are the peoples' decisions". The party nominated Sharif's younger brother Shahbaz Sharif for the post of acting President of the party.

Shehbaz first became the chief minister of Punjab after being elected as an MPA in 1997.

As the NAB cases against Mian Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz are proceeding at a fast pace and in case of adverse judgement, the party would have faced serious crisis.

The Sharif clan and their supporters have repeatedly denied allegations of corruption, suggesting Nawaz is the victim of a conspiracy driven by Pakistan's powerful military establishment.

With the Senate elections are being held in one week, the party is now in the process of organising its voting strategies with a significant number of members of the electoral college busy in the process.

A three-judge bench of the top court, headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar and comprising Justice Umar Ata Bandial and Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan, issued a short order on petitions filed against Sharif holding the party position after his disqualification in the Panama Papers case in July a year ago.

The court said a person who is disqualified under the Constitution is not eligible to keep any position in a political party. "PML-N stands united", she tweeted.
