Sharif's wife files nomination to contest his seat

Later in the evening, while addressing a political gathering in Gujranwala, Nawaz Sharif offered his condolences over the incident and promised that he will visit the victim's family.

According to sources within the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), the deposed premier, who is on way to Lahore in a rally via Grand Trunk Road, will formally announce the name of Kulsoom Nawaz as party's candidate for NA-120 by-election during his address to workers at Data Darbar today.

Nawaz Sharif said on Friday that conspiracies were being hatched against his government for the last three-and-a-half years, and pledged to make Pakistan a great country.

Nawaz Sharif embarked on an on-the-road rally on Wednesday from Islamabad, heading to his hometown of Lahore. "We were making progress and once again it has strangled", he told his supporters amidst chants of "wazir-i- azam Nawaz Sharif" (prime minister Nawaz Sharif).

So, with the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif, ruling Pakistan Muslim league Nawaz is technically a party with no head and as per ECP rules, its symbol can not be assigned to any candidate, reported Pakistan Today.

Moreover, Sharif expressed confidence that he will be elected as Prime Minister of Pakistan for the fourth time.


"Kalsoom Nawaz is going to the parliament", son-in-law Muhammad Safdar Awan, who is also a National Assembly lawmaker, said after submitting her nomination papers at the election commission office in Lahore. He also criticised PML-N's GT Road "homecoming rally" saying no senior leader of the ruling party took part in it. "I am a patriotic Pakistani", Sharif said.

Yesterday, Nawaz Sharif said he has been ousted from the office but he remains in the hearts of the people.

"I am going home and I do not want you to get me restored. Wait for my call to join me in the struggle against such elements as have disgraced the democratic right of the people", he said. There were no charges of corruption or kickbacks on me.

Sharif said that every time the country is pulled back when it reaches at a takeoff stage. "Promise me that you would do what I tell you", he said.

The child, identified as Ahmad, was among a crowd of supporters gathered to greet Nawaz Sharif as his motorcade passed through Lalamusa.

Pointing out that gathering here serves as a referendum, he claimed that the court of the people of Pakistan has given its verdict in his favour.
