Earlier, the Punjab chapter of PML-N had passed a unanimous resolution a couple of days ago requesting the elder Sharif to lead the party once again.

“Mian Nawaz Sharif ceased to be the president of the PML-N as the result of a controversial judicial order. All obstacles of suppression are over and he stands vindicated. The PML-N will move forward under his leadership,” PML-N Punjab president Rana Sanaullah had said after the passage of the resolution.

“Nawaz Sharif had been requested to reassume the charge of the PML-N,” he has said.

He added that the former prime minister had been forcibly separated from the party in 2017.

According to insiders, it was decided to separate the organisational and government offices in order to make the party more vibrant.

“Nawaz Sharif will visit all the four provinces to reorganise the party after becoming the president once again,” said a senior PML-N leader.

The change of provincial leadership is also on the cards across the country.

The general council meeting would be attended by the members of central executive committee, MNAs, Senators and councillors from all the four provinces including Gilgit Baltistan and Azad Kashmir.
