The EPC had removed the name of Nawaz Sharif on February 21 as the President PML-N from the list of its enlisted political parties after the Supreme Court in its ruling related to Election Act 2017 Case declared him ineligible to head a political party in the light of Panama verdict announced on July 28, 2017.

The Supreme Court’s ruling against Nawaz Sharif prompted the ruling PML-N to elect its new President within seven days.

Eventually the PML-N’s Central Working Committee (CWC) held its meeting in Lahore on February 27 under the Chairmanship of its Chairman Raja Zafar-Ul-Haq in which it elected Shahbaz Sharif un-opposed as the party head.

The PML-N CWC’s decision was later endorsed by the Party’s Central General Council meeting held on March 13 at Jinnah Convention Centre in Islamabad.
