Pakistanis react to historic Supreme Court ruling disqualifying Nawaz Sharif
The unbelievable has finally happened. The Supreme Court verdict is out. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has been disqualified.
The Supreme Court announced that the prime minister was disqualified from holding his office as he had been dishonest to parliament and the courts and could not be deemed fit for his office.
The resignation of Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif erupted a Twitter storm in Pakistan.
The #PanamaVerdict was the top trending hastag worldwide on Twitter. Half of the top 10 trends worldwide were related to Pakistan: Nawaz Sharif (No 3), Gone Nawaz Gone (No. 8), Pakistan’s Supreme Court (No. 9) and Panama Papers (No. 10).
