Nawaz Sharif of PML-N (Pakistan Muslim League) is himself the life long leader of his party. This is not a constitutional office he holds. Democracy which he claims he is fighting for, is not even an issue with him or his family who hold all important offices in the party. His younger brother Shahbaz Sharif is the Chief Minister of the biggest province, Punjab and the President of the party. The sons of Nawaz Sharif are all in the sprawling family business (in Dubai and England) and therefore have not been bestowed upon with offices of the party but his nephew, Hamza Sharif who is politically orientated is a member of National assembly. His in law, Mr. Ishaq Dar is a senator and a member of his kitchen cabinet. Husband of one of his cousins, Sohail Zia butt is the member of Central executive committee of PML(N). A sister’s son, Omar Sohail butt was chosen to become a MNA and another sister’s son, Khurram Sohail is ‘serving’ the nation in the capacity of member Punjab assembly. His wife’s nephew Mohsin Latif was made member provincial assembly and another near relative Bilal Yasin a MNA. Mian Nawaz Sharif made his son in law, Captain (retired) Safdar, got elected from Rawalpindi as MNA and when a seat of national assembly got vacant in the Mansehra district of NWFP, he gave the ticket to his brother Tahir Ali. But the guy who suffered in the hands of government agencies and was victimized, Siddiq ul Farooq was neither given a ticket for Rawalpindi or Mansehra. Even though his services for the party were commendable but he is not the part of the “family” and neither belongs to the ‘elite’ rich industrial / feudal group within the party.
