  • Imran Khan believes that Nawaz Sharif is protesting against the Supreme Court verdict against him

On July 28, a five-member Supreme Court bench disqualified 67-year-old Sharif for dishonesty and ruled that corruption cases be filed against him and his children, forcing the embattled leader out of office.

Later in the evening, while addressing a political gathering in Gujranwala, Nawaz Sharif offered his condolences over the incident and promised that he will visit the victim's family.

The wife of Pakistan's former prime minister Nawaz Sharif will contest the parliamentary seat left vacant after her husband was deposed by the country's top court last month, a party official said Friday.

"Nawaz Sharif's lions have defeated you in the elections in Azad Kashmir, Gilgit-Baltistan besides local government and cantonment board elections in recent years", Kirmani said while speaking to media and party workers after filing the nomination papers.

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif continued a slow, defiant procession down the Grand Trunk Road on Thursday, inching closer to his stronghold of Lahore in a bid to rally supporters after his ouster.

Sources in Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) said that Sharif was unhappy with the turnout and asked party leaders to make more targeted efforts to bring out the supporters.

Following Kulsoom's nomination, it is taken for granted that Pakistan's current Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will continue as head of the cabinet until next year's general election, when Shehbaz would launch his candidacy.

Thousands of PML-N supporters thronged the GT Road to express solidarity and love for their ousted leader whereas camps have also been formed all along the way. Sharif asked. To make sure that their vote is respected, he asked people to stand by him. "The people should ask them why they ousted Nawaz Sharif when he had done no corruption", he said. "I was removed in a minute", he said.

De Blasio said the wounded cop had a "great attitude" as he lay in his hospital bed and even made light of his situation. Police say a man walked into Mike's Heavy Duty Towing and forced a female employee on the ground as he simulated a gun.

Observers say with Kalsoom's nomination for the parliament seat, Sharif intends to seek the dominant role of his family in politics and try to retain his traditional parliament seat in Lahore. "Promise me that you would do what I tell you", he said. "If you hold these people accountable for their deeds now then Pakistan will surely survive", he said.

Mr Sharif added: "I want to ask why they ousted me".

Sharif's political caravan slowly made its way into the rural areas of Punjab province en route to his hometown of Lahore.
