Sharif may extend his stay in London, summons PM, PML-N leaders after review pleas' rejected

Lahore: Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and senior leaders of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) are in London to hold an important meeting with the ex-premier, Nawaz Sharif, on Monday to deliberate on the options and his future prospects after the Supreme Court rejected the review petitions of the his family in the Panamagate case.

Some PML-N circles believe the political environment is not conducive for Sharif's return and hence, he has been advised to stay in London for some time.

"In case we manage to win this poll with a huge margin, this would imply that Mian Sahib's vote bank is still intact. And if things do not go as per plan, there are options," The Express Tribune quoted a PML-N MNA from Punjab, requesting anonymity, as saying.

He added that Sharif might decide to land in Pakistan soon, in case his wife won the NA-120 contest with a thumping majority.

The prime minister's political advisor Ameer Muqam said that the plan to fly to London was on the cards, but insisted that it had not been finalised.

PML-N chairman and the leader of the House in Senate, Raja Zafarul Haq, expressed ignorance when asked whether any meeting between the incumbent and former prime ministers was taking place.

"Not to my knowledge," he said, adding that Sharif's return to Pakistan depended on his wife's health.
