The federal government disagreed with a writ petition filed in the Lahore High Court that sought to disqualify Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif. The petition claimed that Shehbaz did not fulfill his promise to ensure the return of his brother, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, as pledged in an affidavit to the court. The Assistant Attorney General argued that the petitioner had no legal standing to bring the case and that Nawaz Sharif had received permission to travel abroad from the previous government. He also stated that the petitioner should have approached the appropriate forum if he believed there was any offense. The judge asked the petitioner’s counsel if they had approached the federal government during the past three and a half years, and the counsel requested that the court decide based on the merits of the petition. The judge adjourned the hearing and asked for further documents to support the arguments. The petitioner claimed that Shehbaz Sharif had promised to bring back his brother after his medical treatment abroad but failed to do so. The petitioner urged the court to disqualify Shehbaz under the Constitution’s provisions.
