Pakistan’s Supreme Court has disqualified Nawas Sharfi, who was the Prime Minister of Pakistan, from retaining a Public office. Sharif had resigned as the Prime Minister of the Muslim nation, as he was accused of having an undeclared source of income, but he has been leading the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party ever since, however, not seems that he won’t ever be able to stand in elections, or hold an office in public services. Supreme Court Justice Umar Ata Bandial has described the decision of the jury against Nawaz’s disqualification as being permanent, so he can’t challenge it in anyway, and will just have to accept it.
“Today once again, the three-time elected prime minister of Pakistan has been disqualified for life,” state minister and Sharif ally Marriyum Aurangzeb said about the decision out side of the supreme court. The party is just getting ready for an election, after Shrif’s resignation.
Even as he has been accused of corruption, Sharif has denied any claims that state he had a source of income different from his announced assets and the salary that he was being afforded as the leader of the nation. He was the 15th Prime Minister. As the Pakistani elections near, it will be the competition between the parties, PML-N and its rival Tehreek-e-Insaf, to win the support of the public and get into the position of power. The public opinion on him is divided, with some saying that if he was corrupt, then he doesn’t have the right to hold the position, while others who still support him.

We have always believed in the supremacy of law and the neutrality of its arbiters. Despite the judicial verdict, PML-N will continue to be the largest political party of the country under the guidance of Nawaz Sharif.
