  • PM attended King Charles III’s coronation in London.
  • Marriyum says Shehbaz and Nawaz will discuss political issues.
  • Says PM Shehbaz will now leave for Pakistan on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has extended his stay in London to hold “consultations” on the political and national issues with his brother and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb said on Tuesday.

The premier is currently in London for an official visit to attend the coronation of King Charles III, which was held last week.

Marriyum, while taking to Twitter, said that the visit had been extended on Nawaz’s advice and PM Shehbaz will now leave for Pakistan on Wednesday.

The premier had reached the United Kingdom last Wednesday to represent Pakistan at the monarch’s coronation. 

In London, he met UK’s Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and Pakistani-origin Scotland’s First Minister Humza Yousaf on the sidelines of his visit.

The visit was criticised by PTI chief Imran Khan, who said it was a “waste of nation’s money”.

Pakistan has been reeling from an ever-intensifying political crisis as the incumbent coalition government and opposing PTI stay at odds regarding the conduct of elections. Despite the Supreme Court’s orders, the two sides have not yet made any significant progress in the ongoing election dialogue.

PM urges institutions to stay in constitutional roles

Last Friday, PM Shehbaz Sharif said that all institutions of the country need to perform their constitutional duties while staying within their ambit of power, and that “double standards” are harmful to any society.

Speaking to the media outside Avenfield apartments, the premier said that the “double standards” of the judiciary had harmed Pakistan in an irreparable way and the only way forward is equality of justice, and are not acceptable.

The prime minister further said that such trends of courts having “likes and dislikes” are harmful to any society.

Information suggests that court magistrate Malik Muhammad Imran exonerated Imran Khan, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, and Sheikh Rasheed, the chief of AML, in addition to announcing the reserved verdict.

Acquittal of Sadaqat Abbasi and Ali Nawaz Awan from the Azadi March case was also ordered by the court.

It should be mentioned that numerous prominent members of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), like as Shah Mahmood Qureshi, former prime minister Imran Khan, and others, were apprehended by the police in separate complaint letters pertaining to the Azadi March.

Following unrest between police and the PTI leader in the provincial capital, 42 charges were filed against PTI senior leaders and workers for agitation.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) had previously found former prime minister Imran Khan and PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi not guilty in a case involving ciphers.

Decisions on appeals from the cipher case’s conviction were announced by Chief Justice Aamir Farooq and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb of the IHC.

The party’s vice-chairman and founder, who was convicted in a similar case in January of this year, received 10-year prison sentences apiece.

On the other hand, Qureshi’s arrest in the crimes that occurred on May 9th and Imran’s sentences in the Toshakhana and Iddat cases mean that they are unlikely to be released from prison anytime soon.
