Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has urged his elder brother and the supremo of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) to return from London and lead the poll campaign of the party in the general election and become the premier of the nation for a record fourth time, a media report said on Saturday.

Addressing a meeting of the central general council meeting of the party on Friday where he was re-elected as the president of the PML-N, Shehbaz, 71, indicated that Nawaz Sharif would return to the country soon, Geo News reported “I was waiting for my elder brother — who has been in self-imposed exile in London since November 2019 owing to health reasons — to return to Pakistan and then hold the party meeting so he could hand over the PML-N’s presidency back to him,” he said during the meeting.

Nawaz Sharif, 73, has been living in London since November 2019 for medical treatment after a Pakistani court allowed him a four-week reprieve.
