Nawaz Sharif’s return after four years of exile marks a turning point for the troubled nation. It starts a new political shadow play in which the army plays puppeteer
Nawaz Sharif returns to Pakistan from self-exile after securing 'blessings' of military establishment: Experts
Sharif ended his self-imposed exile in the UK and returned home after his party secured the "blessings of the powerful military establishment," said a political commentator.
Nawaz was declared a proclaimed offender in Al-Azizia and Avenfield corruption cases for his continuous absence from the proceedings on appeals against the sentences.
Sharif is accused of obtaining luxury cars from the treasury house by paying just 15 per cent of the price of these vehicles.
Insiders said that it was decided that Sharif and Zardari would "talk directly" on these issues instead of allowing a prolonged debate "at the lower level", which would be a waste of time.
