News Time

The bail of PML-N president and opposition leader in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif from the Lahore High Court is being seen as a significant change in Pakistan’s political landscape. Unlike his brother and former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif is more convinced of the politics of reconciliation. Analysts believe that the release of Shahbaz Sharif from jail on bail in a money laundering case could change the political strategy of Pakistan’s largest opposition party, which could change the national political landscape and the opposition coalition PDM. It will have a profound effect on the future.

On the other hand, the government may be hoping that differences in the political strategy of Shahbaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz could lead to internal divisions within the PML-N. That is why government ministers have been predicting an exit from N for a long time, which means that Shahbaz Sharif and his recently released son Hamza Shahbaz will split from the PML-N. Shahbaz Gul, the special assistant to the prime minister for political media, in a tweet on Tuesday pointed to Shahbaz Sharif’s bail and called it bad news for Maryam Nawaz. He wrote without mentioning the names of Shahbaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz. Today someone is checking his phone again and again. It is feared that some of them may get out of jail because if they do, they will have to take a completely silent mode. Just as he had to disappear from the scene in Daska, so he will have to disappear politically from everywhere.

Shahbaz Sharif’s arrest and Maryam Nawaz’s political rise:

Although Shahbaz Sharif has been arrested for a few months in NAB’s Ashiana housing scandal in October 2018, but on September 28, 2020, NAB arrested him again when the Lahore High Court granted him bail in another case was rejected. This time he was charged with money laundering, in which other family members were also named. His arrest weakened the PML-N’s rhetoric of reconciliation, and his niece, Maryam Nawaz, rose to prominence by adopting a statement of resistance. Meanwhile, the PML-N not only won the by-election in Daska but also in the government stronghold of Nowshera. However, for the past few weeks, Maryam Nawaz has not been seen as politically active, although her tweets have surfaced from time to time. However, her silence on Twitter has been noticed by government advisers like Shahbaz Gul. He also declared Dell’s personal status.

On the other hand, according to PML-N spokesperson Maryam Aurangzeb, the reason for Maryam Nawaz’s temporary distance from politics was due to ill health. Now that Shahbaz Sharif’s bail has been granted and he is being released, can there be differences in his party? Talking to Urdu News in this regard, senior journalist and analyst Mujeeb-ur-Rehman Shami said that neither Shahbaz Sharif nor Nawaz Sharif can afford differences in PML-N. The two brothers have different political views and approaches and this has been going on for a long time but still they go hand in hand because Shahbaz Sharif knows that the power of vote is with Nawaz Sharif so the differences are within the boundaries. It will remain the same and there is no question of any revolt in the party. According to Mujeeb-ur-Rehman Shami, despite the release of Shahbaz Sharif, the Muslim League will continue to move one step forward and two steps back, but if Shahbaz Sharif gets a chance, it will improve. He says it is now clear that change will not come through consensus but through votes. After the resignations of the PPP and ANP from the PDM, the opposition movement has become very weak and now the possibility of removing the government through any movement is almost gone. The power of Shahbaz Sharif is the vote and if he succeeds in getting the demand for a fair election passed, it will be good news for the PML-N and also for all the forces that intend to remove Prime Minister Imran Khan. ‘

The release of Shahbaz Sharif will make a difference on the national scene:

Arif Nizami, editor of the English newspaper Pakistan Today, believes that the release of Shahbaz Sharif will make a difference on the political scene. Obviously, he is the PML-N president and has his own point of view and he will now express it. This will indirectly weaken Maryam Nawaz’s hard line statement and strengthen the PPP’s reconciliation statement. According to Arif Nizami, the PDM alliance may not be restored to its former glory, but relations with the PML-N’s PPP may gradually improve. According to Sohail Warraich, a senior journalist and analyst with Urdu newspaper Jang, the release of Shahbaz Sharif will change the political horizon and reduce the PML-N’s hostile rhetoric. “Shahbaz Sharif will have a conciliatory relationship with the Establishment because he is an open supporter of dialogue and openly pursues the politics of reconciliation.
