LAHORE: Ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif is expected to return from London to Pakistan on November 2 so that he can attend a court hearing on November 3, a senior PML-N leader revealed.
Nawaz, who was currently in Saudi Arabia, is expected to leave for London on Sunday (today), he said.

Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif is also leaving for London for two days on Sunday. Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif are expected to leave for London from Islamabad soon.

They are expected to hold important meetings in London to discuss the current political scenario. Sharif’s return to Pakistan would also be discussed in the meeting.

He further disclosed that according to the plan, Sharif will return to Pakistan on November 2 and will attend the court proceedings on November 3.

The CM office confirmed that Shehbaz may leave for London on Sunday. They did not, however, confirm how long the trip would be or the purpose of the visit.

Sharif was earlier expected to return to Pakistan on October 23 to attend court proceedings, but those plans changed and he proceeded to Saudi Arabia.

Later, there were suggestions from party officials that he would fly back by October 25 to attend the previous accountability court hearing, but that plan was also scrapped.
