Attempts to banish ex-Pak PM Nawaz Sharif from politics have failed: Maryam


Attempts to banish Pakistan’s former prime minister Nawaz Sharif from politics have miserably failed, his daughter and senior leader of the PML-N party Maryam Nawaz has said as she voiced hope that after the swearing-in of the new top judge, the judiciary will now uphold justice.
Reacting to the swearing-in of Justice Qazi Faez Isa as the 29th Chief Justice of Pakistan on Sunday, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party Senior Vice President Maryam expressed her hope that now the courts will prioritise justice.
The PML-N party’s chief organiser claimed that attempts to banish her father Nawaz and his brother Shehbaz from politics have miserably failed, as the judiciary will now uphold justice. Maryam, 49, had been a vocal critic of Isa’s predecessor Justice (retired) Umar Ata Bandial, accusing him of partiality and giving undue favour to the ousted prime minister Imran Khan’s party (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf) in some cases. ‘’The scales of justice would be balanced for each citizen, and PML-N supremo, along with other party leaders, would get rid of injustices done to them by ‘Project Imran’
activists,’’ The Dawn newspaper quoted her as saying. Meanwhile, former prime minister Shehbaz Sharif, Nawaz’s younger brother, also underlined the possibility of the dispensation of justice after the new CJP’s appointment.
