Nawaz Sharif was on Wednesday disqualified as Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) president by the Supreme Court, as reported by Pakistan media.

While #MujhayKyunNikala trended on Twitter following the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif as Prime Minister of Pakistan past year, this recent verdict stirred Twitteratis to generate several hashtags to express their opinions over the recent political development. The decision was made by 3 member bench headed by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar passed the decision against the Elections Act 2017 passed by the parliament of Pakistan.

Despite the fact that the Supreme Court's short order consists of only nine paragraphs, it has already put the upcoming Senate elections in jeopardy.

New Horizons is not as far from Earth as Voyager 1 , but this spacecraft is also on track to leave the solar system. With its latest wake-up, it broke the record for the farthest image humanity has ever taken away from Earth.

The ruling by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, heading a three-judge penal, was in response to petitions from opposition parties who challenged a constitutional amendment pushed through parliament by Sharif's party a year ago, after he resigned as premier over corruption charges.

Similarly, when former military ruler Pervaiz Musharraf imposed restrictions on the PPP, a new party called PPP-Parliamentarians was created, but the decisions for that party were also taken by Benazir Bhutto.

In the court order Wednesday, Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar directed the Election Commission of Pakistan to remove Sharif as party head from all relevant records.

However, the court's decision could throw the vote into disarray, with opposition figures and constitutional experts saying the ruling invalidates candidates who were nominated by Sharif. However, decisions taken by Sharif will be nullified, including tickets issued by him for the Senate elections.
