Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif has threatened to quit party leadership, reports Daily Jang.
Shehbaz has shown anger after his strategy for the Azad Kashmir elections was ignored, resulting in the party’s loss.
Leader of the Opposition in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz has reportedly stopped his father from stepping down.
“Hamza has also assured Shehbaz of taking up this matter with PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif.”
It is also being said that PMLN-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz will remain inactive for at least one year.
When contacted for a comment, senior PML-N leaders, chairperson Raja Zafarul Haq, secretary-general Ahsan Iqbal, spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb, and Ata Tarrar, did not attend phone calls.
In May, senior anchorperson Shahzeb Khanzada revealed that Shehbaz Sharif wants Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz to take a backseat from political activities and stay quiet. The focus should only be on the 2023 general elections. If Nawaz agrees to give full control to Shehbaz, then he will take all Opposition parties on board. He will then also hold a dialogue with the establishment. If Nawaz does not agree, Shehbaz will quit politics. He will not take part in any political activities after that.
