  • PTI candidate Yasmin Rashid met Imran Khan after extensive door-to-door political campaign

Sharif, 67, resigned during his third stint as prime minister after the Supreme Court ruled on July 28 that he should be disqualified and ordered a criminal probe into his family over allegations stemming from the "Panama Papers" leaks of worldwide offshore companies.

But Sharif, who was disqualified by the Supreme Court last year for not being honest about his assets, remained unfazed by any of this and insisted the rally was the first step to bringing his party back to power in next year's general elections.

Speeding cars accompanying Nawaz Sharif's "homecoming" motorcade crushed a nine-year-old child to death in Lalamusa on Friday, DawnNews reported.

After being driven 12 hours surrounded by supporters showering his vehicle with rose petals from capital Islamabad to the neighbouring city of Rawalpindi, normally a 30 minute drive, Sharif addressed the crowd shortly after midnight. While naming Nawaz Sharif, he should tell everyone who is conspiring against him.

Lawmaker Shahid Khaqan Abbasi replaced the three-time prime minister Sharif after the Supreme Court's July 28 ruling.

Her nomination for the key seat comes days after Nawaz Sharif had proposed that his younger brother Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif should succeed him as Prime Minister - after contesting from NA-120 to become a National Assembly member. Similarly, PML-N leader Musaddiq Malik expressed sorrow over the child's death and sent his condolences to the family.

At a speech during a stop in the town of Jehlum, Sharif noted that he was voted into office by the people but judges ousted him. "There are no allegations of corruption against me".

Sharif in his defence said that he would personally visit the boy's home "and try to help his family for life".

Sharif's political caravan slowly made its way into the rural areas of Punjab province en route to his hometown of Lahore.

Mr Sharif added: "I want to ask why they ousted me. Promise me that you would do what I tell you", he said.

According to the rules set forth by the Election Commission of Pakistan, the electoral symbol could not be assigned to a candidate affiliated with a "headless" party. "Wait for my call to join me in the struggle against such elements as have disgraced the democratic right of the people", he said.
