PPP to Discuss Nawaz Concessions at CEC

Lahore: The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), previously cautious about criticizing the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), will convene a meeting of its Central Executive Committee (CEC) to plan its future actions in response to the unprecedented concessions granted to its former ally. As Pakistan approaches its upcoming general elections scheduled for late January 2024, the political landscape is intensifying. PPP to Discuss Nawaz Concessions at CEC.

The former prime minister’s departure for medical treatment abroad, with the promise of returning to serve his sentence, was not the triumphant homecoming it initially appeared to be. Speaking to The Express Tribune, PPP spokesperson Faisal Kareem Kundi expressed, “If the intention is to hold elections to bring a specific party, the PML-N, to power, it would be more practical to hand them power directly, avoiding the wastage of billions of rupees on a futile electoral process.” PPP to Discuss Nawaz Concessions at CEC.

In the ongoing legal arena, one former prime minister, Imran Khan, is currently facing trial on charges of leaking state secrets, while another former PM, Nawaz Sharif, has just made a triumphant return home, temporarily escaping his legal troubles. Sharif has returned four years later to a grand reception with VVIP protocol, symbolizing the evolving dynamics of Pakistani politics. Despite being declared an absconder, Sharif was granted bail by the court before landing at Islamabad airport.

Kundi noted that PML-N leader Khawaja Asif has openly acknowledged that they have “managed things.” Nevertheless, he believed that the people of the country would reject this selection process if it were to happen. PPP to Discuss Nawaz Concessions at CEC.

However, the political maneuvers at the elite level do not align with public sentiment. Khan remains widely popular, while Sharif’s PML-N is held responsible for the severe economic crisis affecting the country. Sharif’s speech at Lahore’s Minari-Pakistan was noticeably lacking in defiance and anti-establishment rhetoric; it revolved more around the personal hardships he endured during his detention.

There was no mention of ‘vote ko izzat do’ (respect the vote) as long as he was back in good terms with the establishment. Referring to Nawaz Sharif’s return and the suspension of his sentence in a corruption case, Kundi remarked, “One favored individual has been replaced by another.”

For a comprehensive analysis of the intricate dynamics within Pakistani politics, The Diplomat’s Shannon Tiezzi conducted an interview with Michael Kugelman, the director of the South Asia Institute at the Wilson Center. While the crowd gathered from across the province was impressive, the overwhelming enthusiasm seemed to be missing. It was not the typical reception reserved for popular leaders. Sharif has returned to a country that has undergone significant changes over the past few years.
