Former Prime Minister of Pakistan Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz plan to return to Pakistan within a week, Pakistani media outlet Geo News reported on Monday, citing reliable sources.
According to the report, the decision to return was taken after consultation with some of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) most senior leaders. It was also reported that Maryam Nawaz may return to Pakistan before her father.
The PML-N former president and her daughter intend to lead their party’s much hurdled election campaign. In this regard, Sharif had said that he had ordered huge rallies to be held in different cities of the country.

However, prior to his flight back to Pakistan, a detailed medical check-up and a computed tomography (CT) scan of Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, Sharif’s ailing wife, will be carried out, following which the PML-N supremo will meet her doctors for a comprehensive discussion on her health, current condition, and progress.
Earlier, Maryam Nawaz had said their return depended on the condition of Begum Kulsoom, who has been on the ventilator for a few weeks now. She had explained that she would return on the first available flight as soon her ailing mother’s condition improves.
