Ousted Sharif pre­pares for po­lit­i­cal come­back

The Washington Times Daily - - WORLD -

IS­LAM­ABAD | Pak­istan’s ousted Prime Min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif on Tues­day in­sisted that his re­moval from of­fice did not mean his fu­ture in pol­i­tics was over, as he plans to go ahead with a rally this week and fight a le­gal bat­tle to re­verse his dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion.

“I don’t want re­in­state­ment for my­self. I am strug­gling to en­sure the rule of law in Pak­istan,” he said in a meet­ing with a se­lect group of jour­nal­ists in Is­lam­abad.

Mr. Sharif said his le­gal ex­perts will soon file a re­view pe­ti­tion against the July 28 Supreme Court or­der that ousted him from power for con­ceal­ing as­sets — specif­i­cally, that his son’s Dubai-based com­pany listed a monthly salary for him. Mr. Sharif has re­peat­edly said he never re­ceived any of that money.
