Sharif won’t resign…or be sent on leave!

The meeting sparked speculations in the electronic media with some television channels claiming that the army chief had asked the premier to go on leave or tender resignation for at least three months so that a Supreme Court commission could probe into the election rigging allegations.

However, soon after the speculations started to make their space, the PM House as well as the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the media wing of the armed forces, strongly contradicted the rumours.

Nevertheless, an official statement issued by the PM House quoted the premier resolving not to tender resignation or go on leave under “any pressure”.
