Former military ruler and All Pakistan Muslim League chief General (retd) Pervez Musharraf expressing his joy over the top court’s decision to disqualify Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif congratulated the nation on the verdict.

“I think it’s a very good decision. The entire nation is jubilant. Sweets are being distributed everywhere,” he added. “It’s a historic day.”

The former president went on to maintain that the verdict would have positive effects in the coming days. He said there should be an interim government of technocrats to run the country for the time being.

Early elections, he added, would would not be a wise move in the current circumstances.

Panama Papers case: SC disqualifies PM Nawaz Sharif

He said the credit for Nawaz’s ouster from his post went to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Friday resigned from his post, his office said, hours after the Supreme Court disqualified him over corruption claims against his family.

The apex court said Nawaz was not fit to hold office and ordered a criminal investigation into him and his family.

The Prime Minister’s office said in a statement that Sharif has “stepped down” despite having “serious reservations” about the judicial process. The federal cabinet also stands dissolved.

    I laugh at people who rant against Musharraf. He is the best ruler Pakistan ever had and saved Pakistan when America was ready to turn Pakistan into another Iraq.Recommend

    Does this tinpot has any shame? He became president through the backdoor, always said “Pakistan first” but worked for foreign government agencies. How did he get a flat in an upscale neighborhood. Everytime his time came up, the military stood behind him. Recommend
