ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) is expected to field Sardar Mehtab Abbasi for the office of Prime Minister on June 22, SAMAA quoted reliable sources say Wednesday.
The sources The N-League is likely to take all political parties in confidence over election of Sardar Mehtab for the premiership.
The PML-N’s top leadership is in the crunch meeting at Punjab House over the freshly churned up political turmoil triggered by Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani’s toppling from his office in the wake of Supreme Court’s conviction of him over contempt charge.
It should be mentioned here that Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) yesterday de-notified Yousuf Raza Gilani from his office in the wake of court’s three-judge bench verdict of his disqualification.
