Former premier's wife to stand in Pakistan parliament

Sharif has been addressing crowds along the route that connects the capital to his party's eastern stronghold after Pakistan's top court deposed him last month following a corruption investigation

On July 28, the Supreme Court of Pakistan investigating the Panama Papers case had disqualified Nawaz for not declaring complete assets in 2013 when he ran for the National Assembly.

"Why was Nawaz Sharif ousted?"

But last week, the ruling party elected Sharif loyalist Shahid Khaqan Abbasi as prime minister.

In a message posted on Twitter, Nawaz Sharif's daughter Maryam Nawaz expressed sorrow over the incident, stating that local authorities have been directed to provide assistance to the affected family.

"I became the prime minister of Pakistan through votes, whereas five honourable judges sent me home".

On Friday, he told his audience: "Every prime minister in this country was given a tenure of one-and-a-half years, on average, to govern". He said the nation had a right to decide about their future and urged people to stand united for progress, peace and stability in the country and ensured that their mandate was respected as he sought their support for a strong Pakistan.Diverging briefly from his line of thought to talk about his opponents, their attempts to thwart his government, and the circumstance surrounding his ouster, Nawaz Sharif also asked the crowd: "Is there any law to tackle dictators in this country?"

The people had great attachment with their leader Nawaz Sharif and PML-N, he said adding that the party would come again in power in 2018 election. "Tell me, will you hold them accountable?" he asked his followers.

"NA-120 will prove to be Waterloo for (Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chief) Imran Khan and other opponents of Nawaz Sharif", Kirmani was quoted as saying by the report. "I leave this for history to determine", noted the three-time premier.
