“Report: Shehbaz Sharif Resigns From PML-N Presidency”

Shehbaz Sharif Steps Down as PML-N President: Party to Elect New Leader

In a significant development in Pakistani politics, Shehbaz Sharif has resigned from his position as the President of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). This decision, reported by ARY News and confirmed by party sources, marks a pivotal moment for the PML-N as it prepares to elect a new leader.

According to sources, Shehbaz Sharif submitted his resignation to Nawaz Sharif, the PML-N supremo, signaling a shift in the party’s leadership. In response to Shehbaz Sharif’s resignation, the PML-N has scheduled a general council meeting in Lahore on May 28, where members will convene to elect a new president.

This development comes after earlier announcements of a general council meeting on May 11, indicating the party’s readiness to address leadership changes. Notably, Rana Sanaullah, in a recent press conference, revealed that the Punjab chapter of the PML-N had urged Nawaz Sharif to reassume the party presidency. The resolution passed during the PML-N Punjab meeting emphasized Nawaz Sharif’s leadership as crucial to the party’s future endeavors.

It’s essential to highlight that Nawaz Sharif faced legal restrictions after his conviction in 2018, which prevented him from holding public office. However, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) acquitted him in the Avenfield and Al-Azizia references in late 2023, clearing the way for his return to active political participation. Subsequently, Nawaz Sharif contested the General Elections 2024 and secured victory from NA-130 Lahore, marking a significant political comeback.

The upcoming general council meeting in Lahore holds immense significance for the PML-N as it navigates through this period of transition and prepares to elect a new leader to guide the party forward. Stay tuned for updates on the outcome of the meeting and the new direction the PML-N leadership will take.
