Nawaz Sharif's services are unforgettable: Punjab CM

Pak SC ejects sharif

Political uncertainty in Pakistan triggered by the ouster of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will be advantageous to its military which may now back terrorism against India more aggressively, foreign policy experts said today.

The Pakistan Muslim League (N), the country's ruling party has approved Shehbaz Sharif the next Prime Minister after his brother Nawaz Sharif had been dismissed on July 28, Dawn publication reported Saturday citing sources.

The army has not commented on Mr Sharif's departure, or on allegations they were involved.

He is now the chief minister of Punjab, the most populous province of Pakistan.

If elected, the interim leader would be in power for at least 45 days until Shahbaz steps down as the head of the Punjab government, and contests a by-election to the national assembly.

However, the 65-year-old Shahbaz Sharif, who now serves as the chief minister of the country's Punjab Province, will first need to be elected as a lawmaker to the National Assembly before he can assume the top leadership post.

Still, the corruption scandal which ultimately brought him down had been mounting for months, and it seemed like it was only a matter of time before he was either sacked by the courts or forced to resign in disgrace. He also has better relations with the military than his brother.

In 2007, Sharif returned to his homeland after his PML-N party teamed up with the Pakistan Peoples Party, or PPP, to force Musharraf out of office.

China expressed hope that various parties and sections in Pakistan could "prioritise state and national interests, properly deal with their domestic affairs, maintain unity and stability, and keep focusing on the economic and social development".

The announcement came a day after Pakistan's Supreme Court removed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif from the office, after finding that he was dishonest to Parliament and had misled the courts.

Opposition leader, and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party member, Imran Khan referred to the PML-N as a "monarchy".

Sharif was not named in the Panama Papers, but his three children were linked in the documents to offshore companies.

At the Saturday meeting, PML-N also chose to challenge Nawaz Sharif's disqualification through a review petition in the apex court.

Sharif has been banned by the court from taking part in politics for not being "truthful and honest".

Sharif's supporters have held similar small rallies in the eastern city of Lahore from where he won the 2013 parliamentary elections. He was sworn in as the chief minister of Punjab on February 20, 1997, after being elected to the Assembly for the third time.
