Nawaz Sharif alleges In 2017, Ex-Chief Justice Conspired To Remove Him As Pakistan’s Prime Minister

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif claimed to have an audio recording of former head Justice Saqib Nisar suggesting he should be removed and replaced by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf head Imran Khan. Demanding action against Supreme Court judges involved in his removal as prime minister in 2017, the 74-year-old three-time former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo also expressed disappointment with Pakistanis’ attitudes towards him and his party. He spoke during a party gathering in Lahore, when it was resolved that he will be re-elected as party president on May 28.
