ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s former three-time PM: Nawaz Sharif: is returning to the country after Eid to voluntarily face the judicial process in all cases against him, federal minister and PML-N leader Javed Latif said on Wednesday. He also revealed that PPP had named the party’s chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari for the vacant foreign minister’s berth and that he would take the oath for the office after returning from London:.
Nawaz, whose third term as PM ended in 2017 when he was forced to resign in accordance with the: Supreme Court:‘s decision in the Panama papers case, flew to London in November 2019 to seek treatment for various ailments.
“Nawaz Sharif will be seen in Pakistan after Eid,” Latif said in a video statement a day after new PM: Shehbaz Sharif:‘s 37-member cabinet took the oath of office.
On the cases as pending against Nawaz, the minister said PML-N believed in the sanctity of the legal process and would accept whatever verdict the courts gave.
Farhatullah Babar, PPP’s secretary-general, said party chief Bilawal was visiting London primarily to meet: Nawaz: and congratulate him on the new coalition government.
A two-member bench of the Lahore high court is scheduled to take up a petition filed by PML-N, seeking the removal of Nawaz’s name from the no-fly list. His name was put on the exit control list by the erstwhile PTI-led government after he made a long-distance comeback to politics in 2020 by breaking a two-year silence to denounce the country’s powerful military and vowing to topple Imran Khan.
