Nawaz Sharif entered the electoral fray

Nawaz Sharif News: Former Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif has become active as soon as he came to his country Pakistan. After his statements, he is now in the headlines because of the news of his nomination. They can file nomination today. According to the information, former Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif can contest elections from Mansehra region of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.

The constituency from which Sharif is contesting is his party’s stronghold.

In this regard, his son-in-law Captain Muhammad Safdar said that Mansehra will submit his nomination papers for Mansehra-cum-Torghar constituency on Thursday i.e. 21st December. He returned to Pakistan in October after 4 years of self-exile to lead his party in the general elections. Actually, Mansehra is part of Hazara division, which is considered the stronghold of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).

It is believed that apart from Mansehra, Sharif will also contest elections from his home constituency Lahore. Nawaz Sharif is the only Pakistani leader who has become the Prime Minister of a country which has experienced coups a record three times. Sharif, who was acquitted by the Islamabad High Court in the Avenfield and Al Azizia cases, is eyeing a record fourth term as prime minister in the next elections. However, Sharif could face a major hurdle.

When Atal ji’s government was in India, Nawaz was the PM of Pakistan.

Nawaz Sharif has held the reins of Pakistan for a long time. She was the Prime Minister of Pakistan even during the time of Atal ji’s government. During his tenure, relations between India and Pakistan were in good times as well as bad times. Because before the Kargil war, Atal ji had gone to Lahore by bus as a goodwill gesture and Nawaz Sharif had given him a grand welcome and the dignitaries accompanying him from India. However, after some time, the Kargil war took place during Nawaz’s tenure. In this way India-Pakistan relations turned sour. The then Pakistan Army General Pervez Musharraf had a big role in starting the war.
