Nawaz Sharif stepped down as Pakistan's prime minister Friday, after the Supreme Court ordered his removal over accusations of corruption in a ruling that is likely to shift the country's tumultuous political balance.
On Friday, Pakistani Supreme Court chose to remove Sharif following corruption investigation into his family. "This is not good news for India", said Sharif's "departure from the political scene is nearly certain to herald a period of volatility within Pakistan and, therefore, greater risk in relations between India and Pakistan". "Sharif has also responded wisely by announcing to step down even before the Election Commission issued a notification to remove him from his post, following the court verdict".
While Khan would now feel vindicated in centring his politics around one man's dismissal, he has always been outed as a stooge for Pakistan's all-powerful military establishment by, among others, his own party's former president.
The former prime minister said that you (PML-N's members) should be proud that corruption was not the reason for his disqualification.
The ruling plunged Pakistan into political turmoil, although judges asked the country's figurehead president to "ensure continuation of the democratic process".
