Shehbaz Sharif will be PML-N new President :Zafarul Haq

Shehbaz Sharif will be PML-N new President :Zafarul Haq

Opposition leader Imram Khan has expressed concern at Sharif's plan to travel to Lahore with a cavalcade, describing it as "a deliberate attempt to undermine the Supreme Court" and its judgement in the high-profile scandal.

Following his disqualification as the prime minister, Sharif vacated PM House on July 30 and headed to his Murree residence along with family members and close confidants. "This is not a million march this is a ten million march", he said downplaying criticism that participants in the rally were less than expected.

His removal from power plunged Pakistan into political turmoil but Sharif loyalists in the Pakistani parliament promptly elected senior MP Shahid Khaqan Abbasi as the country's new prime minister. "While PTI called off its protests once SC took up the rigging and corruption cases, Nawaz Sharif has chosen to take to streets after being found guilty and having been disqualified", he added.

The last known contact between top leadership was made when former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and Ghani met on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit in Astana about two months ago. Party sources said that Sharif feared defections as several contenders for the post of chief minister appeared in Punjab after his decision to elevate Shehbaz. The former prime minister also planned to deliver speeches at key places during the journey.

Sharif, who was staying in Murree after his ouster as Prime Minister, arrived in Islamabad with a grand welcome by scores of his followers.

Sharif was seen off in Islamabad by Abbasi, the new cabinet and other party officials, Sharif's political adviser Asif Kirmani said. He has vowed to get justice for eight supporters killed during 2014 anti-government rallies.

The poll panel stated that a disqualified legislator can not hold any position in a political party under the Political Parties Order 2002, Daily Pakistan reported.
