Ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif held a meeting at Punjab House for consultations on the new leader of the party a day after he was removed as PML-N head following a Supreme Court judgement that also nullified all official party decisions taken by Sharif since his disqualification in July past year.
Mr. Sharif appeared before an accountability court in Islamabad on Thursday and said the ruling was not unexpected.
Earlier, PML-N Chairman Raja Zafarul Haq accompanied by party leaders Anusha Rehman and Tariq Fazal Chaudhry called on the chief election commissioner (CE) to re-issue tickets to the party's Senate candidates.
The PPP chief termed Nawaz Sharif's ongoing campaign of "Mujhe Kiyun Nikala" a drama like his previous acts of plane hijacking and attack on the Supreme Court. "They are trying to oust me from politics".
"You know they first paralysed the executive and snatched its authority", he said, adding that Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said the same in Parliament recently.
"It has created a serious crisis for [PML-N]. and it has also created uncertainties about the direction of [the] Pakistani political system", analyst Hasan Askari told AFP.
The judgment also hung the fate of the Senate elections scheduled to be held in March, in the balance, local broadcaster Express News reported quoting constitutional experts.
Sindh chapter activists on Thursday held a protest demonstration outside Karachi Press Club (KPC) against disqualification of Nawaz Sharif from heading his party.
The minority said there was no law to answer such questions, but the parliament through legislation or the Supreme Court (SC) through its wisdom could provide the answers.
"Nawaz Sharif is likely to gain more sympathy and his party more votes in the coming elections", Rumi wrote on Twitter.
PML (N) which holds majority in the Parliament bulldozed a legislation previous year following Mr. Sharif's disqualification as the Prime Minister.
A three-time prime minister, Sharif has denied allegations of corruption.
