According to the news sources, the Muslim League (N) has prepared a strategy to deal with potentially imposing decisions against the Supreme Court, and to deal with potential political disadvantages. As an alternative prime minister, Khawaja Asif is emerging as a strong candidate, but there are many other names, including Ahsan Iqbal, Sardar Ayaz Asadq and Khurram Dastgir.
According to sources, a comprehensive strategy has been set up in the recent consultation of the ruling party, which has two aspects of the Panama case, a legal and second is political. The ruling party has decided that legally, any Supreme Court decision will be accepted by all parties and there will not be any case of confrontation, but despite accepting the legal decision, it will be competition on a political front, and the opposition will be able to compete against the allegations.
Sources said that the ruling party has decided and given the mandate of selecting a new Prime Minister to PM Nawaz. For nomination, PM Nawaz would be considering following 4 aspects:
- The nominee should have a long term commitment to the party and should also be experienced in politics
- Loyalty with Sharif family & PML-N
- Should be well reputed & should have clear acceptance within the party
- And the most important, should have been in good books of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
PML-N has decided that whatever the Supreme Court’s decision may be about Panama Case, the party will support Nawaz Sharif and whatever he’ll decided for the future of the party.
