A Plea seeking removal of N from PML N was filed in the Peshawar High Court
The plea filed by Khanzada Ajmal Zeb states: “Nawaz is convicted by the NAB court and he has no right to name a party after him.”
The petitioner prayed the court to declare the word ‘Noon’ or ‘Nawaz’ with PML illegal and unconstitutional and “therefore, it should be expunged from the Pakistan Muslim League.” The petitioner told the court that Nawaz was convicted in corruption charges and sentenced for 10 years. He asked how can the name of former prime minister is still attached to a political party despite being banned from participating in politics for life?
“Nawaz has hijacked the PML and has introduced his own group, which is against the policy of party’s original ideology and public interests,” he claimed.
