Opposition demands Nawaz Sharif’s resignation after SC ruling in Panama Leaks

Opposition demands Nawaz Sharif’s resignation after SC ruling in Panama Leaks
April 20, 2017

ISLAMABAD, 20 April: Major opposition political parties on Thursday demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif after Supreme Court ruling in Panama Leaks that ordered to form a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to investigate Sharif’s family.
Addressing a press conference, PTI chairman Imran Khan said that Nawaz Sharif should resign immediately as he has lost moral authority to run the government affairs.
“I demand resignation of PM till completion of JIT investigation,” he said adding that it was not possible that a free and transparent investigation was carried out when the accused Nawaz Sharif was holding the premiership. He can take his charge as prime minister again if cleared in investigation, he explained.
Meanwhile Pakistan Peoples Party Asif Ali Zardari also asked Nawaz Sharif to resign from premiership. He, however, rejected the decision of the larger bench of the apex court saying setting up a JIT was tantamount to allowing Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to flee.
Zardari appreciated two senior judges of the Supreme court for their dissenting notes in the decision, who had disqualified the prime minister.
“I salute the two senior judges as they have given the finest decision”, said Former president. Justifying his position, he said that a decision which the Supreme Court could not make, how will the Grade-19 officers under the PM decide the case? He said majority of junior judges have joked with the people of Pakistan.
