Shoe Hurled At Nawaz Sharif In Lahore

While addressing the Central General Council after his election, Shahbaz Sharif called for removing hurdles in the way of political process.

Meanwhile, a Supreme Court beach headed by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar today disposed of a number of contempt of court petitions against former prime ministers Nawaz Sharif and Yousaf Raza Gilani, Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif and former Senate chairman Nayyar Bukhari.

In his first address after officially taking the reins of the party, the younger Sharif said no one from the party can replace Nawaz Sharif - the former Prime Minister who was ousted by the country's apex court previous year.

During the hearing, petitioner stated that after court's verdict of ousting Nawaz Sharif, the former premier started carrying out political rallies and verbally disrespecting the courts.

He told a charged crowd, that the opposition leaders actions contradict their statements, calling on his supporters to make the upcoming general elections a referendum against his disqualification.

This is not the first time that the "Khadim-e-Alaa" would be serving in this capacity as he was elected president of PML-N twice - in 2002 and 2006.

Both, Aziz and Chaudhry, were rewarded with ministerial post in the cabinet of Sharif's successor, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi. "Respecting the vote is akin to respecting the public", said Nawaz, and added that he has been booked in cases for raising his voice for the sanctity of the vote and the nation.

Sharif was disqualified by the supreme court previous year for concealing assets.

But the PML-N president cautioned that today was not a day to give and receive congratulations.

The apex court ruled that a person disqualified under Article 62 and 63 can not serve as the head of a political party.
