Shehbaz in a series of tweets commented on the historic Supreme Court ruling that lawmakers disqualified under Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution will be unable to contest elections for the rest of their life.
The verdict seals the political fate of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
“Nawaz Sharif is not the name of a person. Rather he represents a philosophy and an ideology of public service, supremacy of constitution and respect of vote. A leader like him does not need any formal office to continue guiding his party and serving his people.
Shehbaz stated that despite the SC verdict, PML-N will “continue to be the largest political party of the country under the guidance of Nawaz Sharif”.
“We have always believed in the supremacy of law and the neutrality of its arbiters. Despite the judicial verdict, PML-N will continue to be the largest political party of the country under the guidance of Nawaz Sharif,” he said.
