Former finance minister Dr Miftah Ismail has resigned from the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and announced his exit from active politics due to the party’s restructuring. In a letter to PML-N General Secretary Ahsan Iqbal, Ismail stated that it is time for him to officially acknowledge and move on. He resigned from his position as General Secretary of PML-N Sindh and all party committees. Ismail expressed gratitude to party leaders, Mian Nawaz Sharif and Mian Shehbaz Sharif, for their support and trust. He also thanked senior PML-N leaders such as Ahsan Iqbal, Khawaja Asif, Ayaz Sadiq, Pervaiz Rasheed, and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi for their kindness. Although no longer involved in electoral politics, Ismail shares the desire to see a socially just, economically stable, and well-governed Pakistan. Ismail has been advocating for various reforms in Pakistan, including the privatization of state-owned entities, improvements in the education sector, and population control. He served as the finance minister in 2018 and presented the budget for that year. During his second tenure as finance minister in 2022, Ismail oversaw the resumption of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) programme, which has since been stalled.
