Nawaz set to become PML-N chief again with legal hurdle overcome


After being cleared by the National Assembly, clause 203 of the Elections Reforms Bill, 2017 was passed by the Senate as well, paving the way for ousted premier Nawaz Sharif to become the chief of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) again.

The upper house of the parliament approved the bill on Friday, Express News reported.

Pakistan Peoples Party’s Aitzaz Ahsan had suggested an amendment in clause 203 stating that someone who was no longer a member of the National Assembly could not become the chief of a party either.
