Sharif's wife Kulsoom will be running for the seat vacated by the former prime minister after his disqualification by the Supreme Court in July over an omission in his parliamentary wealth declaration. The Sharif family and Dar will now face corruption cases filed by the National Accountability Bureau in the accountability court.

In reply to a question, she said the leader of the ruling party is Nawaz Sharif and "all of us" are united under his leadership.

Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has finalized all arrangements to hold by-election in NA-120 Lahore in a free, fair, transparent and peaceful manner on Sunday (today).

However, Maryam claimed that Nawaz Sharif and his politics did not suffer of the verdict in Panama case. However, he has taken the hard path of going to people and now the debate about the sanctity of peoples' mandate has become a public debate. "Such representative can't be disqualified on the basis of a joke like Iqama [work permit]". "Do you accept this unjust verdict?" she asked her supporters, adding, "If you are against the verdict, then vote for lion on 17 September".

"Support Nawaz, support progress", Maryam said to PML-N supporters.

Speaking to media, Khan said Nawaz Sharif attempted to pressure the apex court through political moves like GT Road Rally after he was ousted by the Supreme Court. They had challenged the decisions of the returning officer and an election tribunal whereby nomination papers of Kulsoom Nawaz were accepted.

Another PML-N leader, Talal Chaudhry, said: "Even a terrorist have the right to appeal, but in this case a Prime Minister has been denied that right and was disqualified from his office". "Nisar calls me his daughter", she said.
