Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah on Friday hinted that the party’s supreme leader Nawaz Sharif might return and personally choose candidates for the elections. The PML-N is anxiously anticipating his approaching homecoming to help the party’s electoral campaign.
The interior minister informed reporters following the second day of discussions at Stanhope House that the last legal steps for the party leader’s return are almost complete and that he will personally interview PML-N candidates.
“With great excitement, PML-N will take part in the upcoming election. The first steps have been taken, and [Sharif] has consulted with people in Pakistan and the UK,” the minister stated.
He stated that the details of a parliamentary board are being finalized, and candidates would be invited to apply.
Sharif, according to the minister, will preside over board sessions held in Pakistan and will conduct personal interviews with each contender in the upcoming election, just as he did in the ones in 2013 and 2018.
He added that when Sharif runs the election campaign, several federal ministers will step down to work with him and his daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif.
According to the legislation, serving federal or provincial ministers are forbidden from taking part in political campaigns.
Maryam Nawaz, who was just named the party’s chief organizer, is due to leave London for Pakistan on January 27 and begins her political operations there on February 1, according to the ministry.
