LONDON – Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has accused former Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar of being a “agent” of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), claiming that he worked as an activist for Imran Khan’s party during his tenure on the Supreme Court.

The Prime Minister claimed that the Najam Saqib, son of the former Chief Justice of Pakistan, audio leak revealed a scheme to install PTI’s Khan in power. According to reports, Najam Saqib and PTI candidate Abuzar Chadhar were overheard discussing the distribution of party tickets for the upcoming Punjab elections.

While attending King Charles III’s coronation in London, where he was speaking with journalists, PM Shehbaz made these remarks. He also had a meeting with Nawaz Sharif, the PML-N leader and his brother, during his visit.

According to the Prime Minister, Nisar was instrumental in getting PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif removed from office due to unfounded and unproven accusations. He then oversaw a targeted campaign against their party to install Khan through a rigged election.

The former Chief Justice was charged by PM Shehbaz with using suo motu notices more for private and political gain than for the good of the public. Additionally, he asserted that the audio leak involving Nisar’s son was proof of a plot to assassinate the PTI leader, in which Nisar himself was involved.

The Prime Minister also mentioned that the ex-chief justice and his son had been called before a House committee to answer inquiries about their role in the sale of tickets for Rs120 million.

PM Shehbaz emphasized that the upcoming elections would take place on the same day and that parliament would assert its dominance. He claimed that Punjab elections should not be held on a different day because it would not be in Pakistan’s best interests because all provinces are equal. The Prime Minister also reaffirmed that the constitutional rights of the parliament would be protected, and that the entire parliament is united in claiming its authority within the bounds of the law.
