PM Shehbaz Takes a Private Flight to London

PM Shehbaz Takes a Private Flight to London

PM Shehbaz Sharif depart’s for London after COP27 summits in Egypt.

Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb tweeted the update, stating that the PM Shehbaz had boarded a private aeroplane for a “private visit via the British capital.”

The PML-N eldest brother Nawaz Sharif has lived in London since November 2019, and Maryam Nawaz joined her father there in October. As a result, there has been conjecture that the premier’s journey to the city will result in significant choices.

Shahbaz has made three trips to London Since becoming PM

PM Shehbaz has visited London three times since taking office as prime minister of the nation in April. This trip was planned to coincide with the appointment of the next army leader because General Qamar Javed Bajwa’s term as chief of army staff is slated to expire on November 29.

In fact, Power Minister Khurram Dastgir confirmed the earlier claims that PM Shehbaz would discuss Nawaz on the nomination.

Violating The Official Secrets Act

Imran Khan, the leader of the PTI, reacted angrily to the accusations by denouncing the PM for violating the Official Secrets Act and breaking his oath of office by talking about the next army chief’s nomination with his older brother.

Previously, in September, the premier had been to London, principally to represent Pakistan during Queen Elizabeth II’s burial.

Additionally, at the time, it was claimed that PM Shehbaz had spoken with Nawaz about a possible appointment in November, which was probably the choice of the next army chief.

He returned with PML-N leader and current finance minister Ishaq Dar, as well.

Dar, who had been living in self-imposed exile in London for over five years, took Miftah Ismail’s place as the nation’s finance czar after months of rumors that he was being favored for the position by some of the party’s top executives.

Early Elections

Before that, he had initially visited his brother in May with a group of federal ministers. At the time, it was claimed that the team led by the PM had asked Nawaz for advice on several important choices, including whether to call early elections or not.

In the end, the ruling coalition refrained from calling for immediate elections and gave in to Imran Khan, the leader of the PTI.
