Sheikh Rasheed demands President Mamnoon to call assembly session immediately
Following the Supreme Court`s decision to disqualify Nawaz Sharif from Prime Minister`s office, Awami Muslim League Chairman Sheikh Rasheed demanded President Mamnoon Hussain to call session of the national assembly to elect a new leader of the house.
Speaking at a public gathering, Rasheed said that the country is important not personalities, further adding that Pakistan will run better without Nawaz Sharif in the prime minister office.
He alleged that Sharif tried to bribe the judges hearing the Panama papers case. Taking a jibe at senior Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz leader Chaudhry Nisar, he said that how can he now give resignation when he is not a minister anymore.
Rasheed said that he had earlier told Nawaz Sharif that if respect is dear to him – he should immediately step down – but today Sharif doesn’t hold power nor respect.
Without naming any party he said that there are also parties present in the country who supported Nawaz Sharif secretly while remaining in the opposition.
“They presented forged documents and lied to assembly,” he said. “They dragged their deceased`s, father. Then they brought their children in the case”.
The Supreme Court on Friday disqualified Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for failing to disclose his un-withdrawn receivables constituting assets from UAE-based Capital FZE in his nomination papers for the 2013 elections.
Following the announcement of the verdict, Nawaz Sharif stepped down from the post of prime minister, a PML-N spokesman told media.
Announcing their verdict in the Panama Papers case, all five judges ruled to send references against the premier, his children Maryam, Hussain and Hasan, son-in-law and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar to an accountability court.
The court ordered the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to file a reference against the accused in an accountability court in six weeks and directed for the trial to be wrapped up within six months. The process will be overseen by a single-member implementation bench of the apex court.
The judges also ruled that the prime minister failed to disclose his role in the Dubai-based FZE Capital company in his nomination papers, saying that this meant he was not ‘honest’ and ‘truthful’, as per the Constitution.
