LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif’s nomination papers for NA-119 were accepted by the Election Commission of Pakistan, Express News reported on Friday.

The objection on Sharif’s papers for NA-119 was filed by Mohammad Ashfaq from Muslim League – Qasim claiming the PML-N head had illegally occupied the Pakistan Muslim League house located on Davis Road Lahore.

On April 3, a Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) member filed an objection to the nomination papers of (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif for NA-120.

In his objection, PPP member Sohail Malik said that Nawaz was a defaulter in the Asghar Khan case.

The verdict for this case is to be delivered on April 7.

    the loan default exists after he surrendered hudaibiya paper mill to the government authorities before leaving pakistan at the time of his exile. hence technically he is not a defaulter, as the company was not in his ownership …..

    @Ch. Allah Daad:
    How unfortunate that we still have people in this country who like an ostrich keep voting same people again and again.
    They ruled Punjab for 5 years have they solved your energy problem in Punjab? If not then which of the problem have they solved, electricity, education, over population control or security? Guess none. Their patronage for banned org is exemplary.
    We are facing many problems but they will only keep doing road works only … In KPK even ANP did a lot of “developments” aka road works but one should be wise enough to know that has not solved our real problems.

    PTI and PPP supporters should not day dream to disqualify PML-N leadership in these cases. None of these is proven and Sharif brothers are not declared guilty. Grow up PTI kids. Have courage PPP cowards. Learn to face PML-N in the political field.

    Its a shame that even after supreme court verdict on Asghar khan case, Sharif’s papers are accepted. It blows my mind seriouly.

    Writing columns is a crime and the person cannot contest elections. Stealing and defaulting billions is not a crime. Even after stealing the money and elections as the SC determined, Sharif brothers are still Ameen and Sadiq. Petty criminals (like fake degrees) are going to jail but big defaulters are safe. The close contacts with the PCO judges have paid off for Sharifs!
