Pakistan's deposed PM to resume rally amid tight security

Imran Khan believes that Nawaz Sharif is protesting against the Supreme Court verdict against him

The National Assembly seat fell vacant after 67-year-old Sharif was disqualified by the Supreme Court in the Panamagate case on July 28.

The top court sacked him last month after an investigation into corruption allegations against him and his family, briefly plunging the nation into political uncertainty.

It might sound silly as to why Kulsoom Nawaz would not be able to use the election symbol of the party that nominated it as its candidate but a legal formality bars usage of "lion" symbol after the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif as prime minister.

The by-poll is scheduled to be held on September 17.

Nawaz Sharif embarked on an on-the-road rally on Wednesday from Islamabad, heading to his hometown of Lahore.

Nawaz Sharif, who was ousted by Supreme Court (SC) under Article 62 (1)(f) of the Constitution in Panama Leaks case, on Friday resumed his "homecoming rally" towards Lahore via Grand Trunk Road after a stopover in Jhelum.

The other Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) candidate who has submitted nomination papers is Hafiz Noman and from PTI the other candidate is Andaleeb Abbas.

In Syracuse, the moon's shadow will cover about 85 percent of the sun. "It's a very handsome and interesting sight", Walter said. I hate to think that kids - or anyone, really - missed out on the eclipse because they thought it was something to fear.

Following Kulsoom's nomination, it is taken for granted that Pakistan's current Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will continue as head of the cabinet until next year's general election, when Shehbaz would launch his candidacy.

Meanwhile, the Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs Khawaja Muhammad Asif departed from Sialkot with a huge gathering of PML-N workers and supporters to join the mammoth rally of Nawaz Sharif.

Yesterday, Nawaz Sharif said he has been ousted from the office but he remains in the hearts of the people.

Sharif said that across his journey he saw that citizens had not accepted his disqualification and asked his supporters to await his next move, without elaborating. "If I was corrupt then I would have been ashamed", he said.

"We will have to make sure that the mandate of the people is respected in future; we have to make sure no conspiracy against an elected prime minister succeeds now".

"I am going home and I do not want you to get me restored".

Sharif said in his Gujrat speech he would personally visit the boy's home "and try to help his family for life". "Will you stand with Nawaz Sharif in revolution", he further asked. He said until the mandate of the people was respected, Pakistan couldn't make progress. Someone tell me why I was ousted.
