SC of Pakistan disqualifies Nawaz Sharif from heading his own party

A three-judge Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar of Pakistan’s Supreme Court gave a ruling that a person disqualified under Article 62 and 63 of the Constitution cannot serve as the head of a political party.By this ruling, Nawaz Sharif will have to give up his position as the chief of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz.

Justice Nisar, while reading out the verdict, said that it is mandatory for a party head to fulfill the requirements of Articles 62 and 63 as a party head is powerful and political parties control the government.

It will be pertinent to inform the reader here that Sharif, 68, was disqualified by the Pakistan SC in the Panama Papers case last year under Article 62 of the Constitution for failing to declare a receivable salary as an asset.
