N to re-elect Nawaz as party president today

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif left an anti-corruption court Monday without being indicted after his children, who are co-defendants in the case, failed to appear.

The approval of the Election Bill 2017 with a majority vote has removed the last hurdle in the way of the three-time premier to get re-elected as the head of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz party on Tuesday.

Back in July, a five-judge Supreme Court bench had disqualified former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in the Panamagate case, thus cutting short his third stint in power.

Sharif's first term as Pakistan's prime minister, in the early 1990s, also ended abruptly when he was dismissed by presidential decree after being accused of corruption.

Criticising the Supreme Court, she said despite assuming the role of a trial court, the apex court could not indict Nawaz Sharif, but sent him packing on the issue of a work permit.

President Mamnoon Hussain is expected to sign the Electoral Reforms Bill 2017 into law immediately after it is passed in the lower house.

The court has issued non-bailable arrest warrants for the men and a bailable warrant for Maryam, likely keeping in mind that she may need to stay with her ailing mother in London.

The minister also said Sharif's children - Hassan, Hussain and Maryam and son-in-law Safdar will not come from London to appear in the court to face the graft cases.

Pakistan daily, Dawn, reported that on Monday the ruling PML-N has cleared the way for Sharif to be re-elected as the party president.

Relations between the military and civilian establishment were strained again on Monday when the paramilitary Rangers force, nominally under the control of the interior ministry, barred Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal from entering the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) courts where Sharif appeared.

Earlier, there had been reports that the ousted prime minister would fly to London on Thursday to be with his wife, Kulsoom, who has been undergoing treatment for throat cancer at a private hospital in London.
