New Delhi:

Former Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif is all set to return as chief of country's ruling party Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on October 3.

The PML-N has convened a meeting of its general council on October 2 and 3 to initiate the process of Sharif’s re-election as party chief.

Pakistan’s Minister for Climate Change Mushahidullah Khan who is also the central information secretary of PML-N said on Friday that separate meetings of party’s CWC and general council have been summoned to decide central leadership.

Zawaz Sharif had been disqualified from holding public office by the apex court of Pakistan after conviction in Panama Papers case.

After Sharif was named in the Panama Papers investigation, a unanimous verdict by the Supreme Court of Pakistan has dethroned him from the post of Prime Minister.

The 67-year-old leader was also rendered ineligible to act as the president of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party under the landmark verdict.

Earlier last month, Pakistan’s PML-N party-led government had passed a key clause in the Elections Reforms Bill in the Senate, paving the way for Nawaz Sharif to become the chief of the ruling party again.
