Maryam will meet with Abbasi while the PML-N verifies the ‘rumours’ of her resignation.
An aide to Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has denied the “rumours” that he has resigned from party post and has stated that he is still the senior vice president of the party.
ISLAMABAD: PML-N Chief Organiser Maryam Nawaz and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi are scheduled to meet “soon,” after Muhammad Zubair, a spokesperson of Maryam Nawaz, confirmed on Wednesday that Shahid Khaqan Abbasi had submitted his resignation as the party’s senior vice president.
After the newly designated party Chief Organiser Maryam Nawaz returned to the nation earlier today, media sources indicated that the top party leader had decided to step down from the position.
Zubair confirmed the accusations and informed reporters that “Senior PML-N member and leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi. I don’t think it will have any effect on his status at all for him to leave his position as senior VP “.
He is a very important politician who has served as prime minister, and the party really needs him.
Zubair claimed that Miftah Ismail was a party member and that his replacement, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, has “a larger position” but avoided “bringing up intra-party issues in public.”
Tensions are reportedly rising within the PML-N as a result of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) giving the party until March 14 to hold internal elections.
The conflicts appear to be especially pronounced in relation to Maryam’s advancement, the position of finance minister, and economic policy.
In her first statement following her homecoming, Maryam Nawaz gave the country the reassurance that she and her father, party chief Nawaz Sharif, were fully aware of the inflationary tempest and that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf was to blame for the issues.
Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, in contrast, had asked all political forces to work together just a week prior to her speech at a different gathering to put an end to the politics of demonising one another and to the nation’s ongoing economic problems.
“People’s issues persist when politics degenerates into hostility. The economic crisis and political incompetence have unfortunately reached a height, Khaqan had stated, highlighting the need for governments to genuinely carry out their duties.
Abbasi will meet Maryam
The former premier was referred to as a “asset to the party” during a crucial meeting that Maryam presided over at the party’s headquarters in Model Town. She also promised the audience that she would meet him “soon.”
Maryam has committed to address Khaqan’s concerns and has asked leaders for suggestions on how to make the party stronger, according to party sources.
It was also resolved during the conference that the party will create its own narrative in contrast to Imran Khan’s, the leader of the opposition party.
Zubair was among the leaders present at the conference, along with others including Anusha Rahman, Uzma Bukhari, Malik Ahmad Khan, Talal Chaudhry, Abid Sher Ali, and Mian Javed Latif.
Hafiz Usman Abbasi, a spokeswoman for Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, refuted the “baseless rumours” of his resignation earlier in the day by stating that Khaqan “is the Senior VP of the party.”
“He didn’t leave the party during hard times, so why would he leave now?” Inquiring as he recalled that the previous premier had run for office in 1988 as an independent, joined the PML-N, and never looked back, he questioned the media.
He emphasised, “He went to jail, but never wavered from his purpose.
“Nawaz Sharif appointed him as prime minister, and even then, he declared that Nawaz Sharif is his leader,” Abbasi continued.
