Shahbaz Sharif jubilant to be nominated for PM slot, thanks to SC

By Raza Ruman

(Pak Destiny) Finally Shahbaz Sharif, Punjab Chief Minister, is all set to taste the powers of prime minister, thanks to the Supreme Court for his brother Nawaz Sharif’s disqualification.

Nawaz Sharif after getting disqualification from the five-member SC bench yesterday announced the name of his successor and that is none else but his younger brother Shahbaz Sharif.

     Shehbaz is expected to run for NA-120, Lahore – the seat Nawaz has been disqualified from, sources said. Only after winning a National Assembly seat would Shehbaz be able to be appointed the next premier.

The five-judge larger bench headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa unanimously announced the verdict, disqualifying the PM for failing to disclose his un-withdrawn salary as chairman of UAE-based offshore company Capital FZE.

     For 45 days of stopgap arrangement Shahid Khaqan Abbasi or  Ayaz Sadiq may be chosen for the slot.  Shahbaz Sharif is very happy to be nominated for the slot. He will try to install his son Hamza in Punjab as its chief minister. – Pak Destiny
