Islamabad:Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President and Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif Friday said former premier Nawaz Sharif does not need any formal office to continue guiding his party and serving the people.
“Nawaz Sharif is not the name of a person. Rather he represents a philosophy and an ideology of public service, supremacy of constitution and respect of vote. A leader like him does not need any formal office to continue guiding his party and serving his people,” Shehbaz wrote in a series of tweets following the historic Supreme Court ruling that lawmakers disqualified under Article 62(1)(f) of the constitution will be unable to contest elections for the rest of their life.
“Today is a day of test for the nation when a judicial decision has barred a popular national leader from serving the country who made it a nuclear power and who has the distinct honour of being elected prime minister thrice,” he added.
