N to elect interim president today

Shehbaz Sharif elected as acting president of PML-N

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz's (PML-N) central working committee on Monday named Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif as an interim president of the party.

His proposal, followed by chants of "Wazir-e-Azam, Nawaz Sharif", was endorsed by Prime Minister Khaqan Abbasi, who said: "These are the peoples' decisions".

Nawaz was removed from his position in PML-N after Supreme Court announced its verdict on petitions challenging the Elections Act, 2017 ruling that a person disqualified under Article 62 and 63 can not serve as the head of a political party.

The PPP leader also said that it was easier to talk to PML-N former chief Nawaz Sharif than to Shehbaz.

"Nawaz proposed Shahbaz's name for the party's interim president and all more than 100 CWC members approved his name unanimously".

A PML-N insider said that Nawaz Sharif had finalised his younger brother's nomination for the slot of party president after consulting his wife Kulsoom, daughter Maryam Nawaz, former finance minister Ishaq Dar, former information minister Senator Pervaiz Rashid and a few others.

Boris Johnson, the UK's foreign secretary, also said no country has come up with a "better idea" to replace the agreement. Araqchi further said, "The deal would not survive this way even if the ultimatum is passed and waivers are extended".

Under the party's rules, the PML-N's CWC is supposed to elect an acting party head within a week of its chief's removal.

He was first elected as the PML-N president during exile in 2002, due to the registration of cases against Nawaz.

Nawaz Sharif had already put his weight behind his younger brother for performing well in Punjab and keeping the party united by dint of his "exceptional qualities". Then the party's general council is required to elect a president within 45 days. He has said the top court had no business making the decision to oust him from the party position.

The court said a person who is disqualified under the Constitution is not eligible to keep any position in a political party.

On Feb 21, a three-member bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar gave this verdict on a number of petitions challenging the controversial amendment to the Election Act 20117, which allowed Sharif to head his party.
