According to a Dawn report, the London meeting of the PML-N top leadership has chose to put forward Shehbaz Sharif as prime ministerial candidate after the 2018 elections if party president Nawaz Sharif remains ineligible to run for office.
National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has sought access to the flight of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who arrives in the country tomorrow to appear before an accountability court. According to the survey, conducted by a little known USA institute Global Strategic Partner in September, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chairman Imran Khan was the choice of 47 per cent of total 4,540 respondents from across the country. An accountability court in Islamabad issued bailable arrest warrants for Sharif and directed to produce him on the next hearing on November 3.
Talking to media after his arrival at Heathrow Airport on Sunday night, Sharif said he will soon return to Pakistan. He had previously served as the Prime Minister twice in the 90s (1990-93 and 1997-99) and the Chief Minister of Punjab from 1985 to 1990. "Prime Minister Shahid Abbasi has been involved in the corruption of almost Rs 200 billion in this project", Rashid added.

He said the arrested person was immediately turned over to the police and military for proper disposition. Authorities said they recovered a gun, a grenade and an undisclosed sum.
Denying any differences within the ruling PML-N, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said on Wednesday that there was no need for a decision about the party's candidate for the post of prime minister in next year's elections.
Shehbaz, 66, is the younger brother of Sharif and now the chief minister of the country's largest province of Punjab.
