  • Ruling was designed for the sole purpose of disqualification claims the ousted premier

Even those judges said Nawaz Sharif didn't indulge in corruption", he thundered, and asked people to question why their leader was disqualified when he was not involved in corruption.

"It is my wish that Shahid Khaqan Abbasi remains prime minister till the end of the tenure", Sharif said while addressing senior leaders of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) at the Punjab House here.

Former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan who avoided being part of Nawaz Sharif's GT Road rally attended the session of national Assembly, here on Thursday.

Mr Sharif, in recent meetings with party leaders, lawyers and the media, has expressed his displeasure over the court ruling.

The poll panel said that Article 15 of the PML-N's own party constitution stipulates that if the seat of party President is vacant, it is to be filled within one week's time.

He termed it a dark aspect of history of Pakistan that no Prime Minister was allowed to complete his term.

He asked the people to make a pledge to guard their mandate so that elected representative are not removed through undemocratic ways.
