Ousted Sharif prepares for political comeback
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.
