ISLAMABAD: Scores of supporters have welcomed former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on his arrival to the outskirts of the capital, Islamabad from a nearby hilltop resort.
He was staying at the resort after last week’s dismissal from office by the Supreme Court for concealing family assets.
Sharif was replaced by a lawmaker from his party, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, this week.
Sharif will travel to his home city of Lahore on Wednesday to address a rally there. It will be the first show of political strength from Sharif’s ruling party since his removal.
