Post JIT: Is Nawaz Sharif mulling to resign?

 

Top PML-N officials met at PM House on Tuesday to discuss the party’s legal and political strategy following the submission to the apex court of a damning inquiry report probing the Sharif family’s wealth a day earlier.

 

 

 

The ‘unofficial’ meeting was held to review the Supreme Court-sanctioned joint investigation team’s report, according to DawnNews.

Sources said the PML-N’s legal team briefed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on the JIT report. Participants of the meeting also discussed points of argument regarding the report that could be raised in court.

 

The JIT report, spread over 10 volumes, declared that the prime minister’s sons ─ Hussain and Hassan Nawaz ─ were used as proxies to build family assets.

 

 

The report said the financial structure and health of companies in Pakistan that are linked to the Sharifs do not substantiate the family’s wealth and a significant disparity exists between the wealth declared by the Sharifs and the means through which they generated income.

 

 

The JIT pointed out a failure on the part of the Sharifs to produce the required information that would confirm their “known sources of income”, saying that prima facie, it amounted to saying that they were not able to reconcile their assets with their means of income.

 

The JIT report has made it untenable for the prime minister to stay in power despite his party’s majority in the National Assembly and control over Punjab. His options are becoming increasingly limited.

 

 

The choices are whether steps down now and face the charges or wait for the decision of the Supreme Court.

 

 

The damning indictment by the JIT has left him politically damaged. His defiance could further aggravate the crisis and could derail the political process as we have seen the past.

 

He can still save his party government by getting some one else as the prime minister. That way the government would complete its term and go into the elections next year.
