Next PM to complete 5-year term, says Jemima


LONDON: As Supreme Court of Pakistan announced verdict in the Panama Case scandal and disqualified Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Imran Khan’s ex-wife Jemima Goldsmith has appeared to be very pleased

In a series of tweets, Jemima said no civilian Pakistani PM has ever completed its five-year term, but she adds: “InshaAllah the next one will.”

Rephrasing a popular political slogan used by opposition in Pakistan ‘Go Nawaz Go’, she called it “Gone Nawaz Gone’ – indicating expulsion of sitting PM after court orders.

A five-judge Supreme Court bench has disqualified Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in a unanimous verdict in the Panamagate case, thus cutting short his third stint in power.

Soon after the SC judgement, the PM House issued a terse statement saying that Nawaz Sharif, despite having reservations on the SC’s verdict, has stepped down from his post as the premier.
