ISLAMABAD: PML-N leader Mian Javed Latif Wednesday revealed that the party’s supremo Nawaz Sharif is expected to return to Pakistan after Eidul Fitr, Geo News reported.
In a video statement, Latif said: “Nawaz Sharif will be seen in Pakistan after Eid.”
He claimed that Nawaz will face the cases as per the law and the Constitution, reiterating that PML-N believes in court and will accept its verdict.
Speaking about the newly appointed cabinet, he revealed that PPP had named Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari for the slot of foreign minister and he will take the oath for the office after returning from London.
It is noteworthy that Latif took oath as the member of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s cabinet on Tuesday.
Petition seeking removal of Nawaz’s name from ECL
Meanwhile, a two-member bench of the Lahore High Court (LHC) is scheduled to take up a petition seeking the removal of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s name from the Exit Control List (ECL). The PML-N had filed the petition in the LHC.

Confirming Bilawal’s departure, PPP Secretary-General Farhatullah Babar told The News that the PPP chairman is meeting Nawaz to congratulate him on the coalition government.
“The main purpose of meeting Nawaz Sharif is to congratulate him on the coalition government and discuss the current political situation,” he said.
