The petition against Maryam Nawaz’s assent to PML-N’s vice president position was filed in on 27th May, by the ruling PTI lawmakers challenging the appointment of Maryam Nawaz, the daughter of former premier Nawaz Sharif, as a PMLN vice president.
The petition contended that Maryam could not hold any party position as she was convicted by a court of law on 6th July 2018, in a corruption case (Avenfield reference), filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
