On the trail of Pakistan's ousted Prime Minister

Nawaz GT road trip will begin on Aug-9

Kulsoom Nawaz will contest the seat that was left vacant after her husband was disqualified from office by the country's Supreme Court for concealing assets.

Nawaz Sharif has continued to protest his innocence in the wake of corruption allegations.

Kulsoom, who has been married to Sharif for 46 years, has largely stayed out of politics.

He further added that if any candidate files nomination papers without bringing a letter signed by the party head, they will not be given an election symbol.

The ex-leader has been rallying crowds since Wednesday as he makes his way down the major road from capital Islamabad to his party's stronghold in the eastern city of Lahore, weeks after he was deposed by the Supreme Court. While naming Nawaz Sharif, he should tell everyone who is conspiring against him.

According to the schedule of Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz (PML-N), Sharif is expected to spend the night in Gujranwala.




It is the second time in Pakistan's 70-year history that the Supreme Court has disqualified a sitting prime minister.

Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said that millions of people had voted to elect their leader, but unfortunately a few had conspired to overthrow the democratic government. However, key leaders from Sharif's ruling PML-N party were conspicuous by their absence, with some commentators suggesting this could be a reflection of disagreements within the party. "The people should ask them why they ousted Nawaz Sharif when he had done no corruption", he said.

"We have to make sure that the mandate of the people is respected in the future". "If I was corrupt then I would have been ashamed", he said. "I need your support to ensure respect of the people's vote and civilian supremacy", he said.

Sharif said in his Gujrat speech he would personally visit the boy's home "and try to help his family for life".

The child, identified as Ahmad, was among a crowd of supporters gathered to greet Nawaz Sharif as his motorcade passed through Lalamusa. "Promise me that you would do what I tell you", he said. While Pakistan Peoples Party's Faisal Mir, Zubair Kardar, Azizur Rehman Chan and Sajida Mir, PPP Shaheed Bhutto Group's Shakeel Gilani, Jamat-e-Islami's Zikrullah Mujahid and Pakistan Awami Tehreek's Ishtiaq Chaudhry submitted their nomination papers.
