PM asked not to use office until Panama verdict


LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League leaders Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and Pervaiz Elahi have asked Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif not to use ‘powers of his office’ till the decision of the Panama Papers case.

Speaking at the Iftar dinner they hosted for Jamaat-i-Islami chief Senator Sirjul Haq, Opposition Leader in Punjab Assembly Mian Mehmoodur Rasheed and Pakistan Awami Tahreek secretary general Khurram Nawaz Gandapur , Mr Shujaat said it was not the joint investigation team (JIT) but the Supreme Court which would decide the Panama Papers case.

“Nawaz Sharif should not use the power of his office (of prime minister) till the decision of SC on Panama case,” he said and added the PML-N wanted to make the JIT probing the offshore holdings of Nawaz Sharif and his children controversial. “Now the time has changed as this time, the PML-N can’t attack the SC,” he said.

Pervaiz Elahi said some opposition parties had agreed to form an electoral reforms committee, headed by Sirajul Haq, as electoral reforms were need of the hour.
