Pakistan's Supreme Court has barred former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif from running in elections for life, ruling on a petition asking the tribunal whether the disqualified premier could ever run again. Sharif and his family have called the corruption proceedings a conspiracy but opponents have hailed them as a rare example of the rich and powerful being held accountable.

The Pakistan SC, in February, disqualified Sharif from the post of ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party chief, saying all decisions made by him now stand "null and void".
