"It is my wish that Shahid Khaqan Abbasi remains prime minister till the end of the tenure", Nawaz said in his brief remarks after a high-level party meeting before departing for his GT Road rally.

Sharif Wednesday morning left the Punjab House in Islamabad and arrived at D-Chowk, the first stop of his procession, where the former premier's supporters greeted him.

Deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif will carry on with his "homegoing" rally on Thursday from Rawalpindi's Ketcheri Bazar. Sharif began two days of rallies aimed at demonstrating his political strength, making stops from the capital Islamabad to his hometown of Lahore, ignoring security threats and drawing thousands of supporters.

The two leaders also agreed to work together to address the challenge of energy in the region and improve the economic condition in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Sun and only a small chance for rain
Most stay dry, but a couple of showers and thunderstorms may bubble up in peak daytime heating, mid afternoon to early evening. Skies will stay mostly cloudy to overcast and winds will remain light out of the northeast around 5 to 10 miles per hour .

Sharif, 67, said that it was pity that none of the prime ministers in the 70-year history of the country have been allowed to complete their tenure.

Leader of Pakistan Peoples Party Qamar Zaman Kaira has asked ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif to inform the people about the name of the conspirator that planned his removal from the office. "The Supreme Court's judgment to disqualify him is disputed, so people have not accepted it", said Sharif supporter Arshad Iftikhar, a retired government official.

Sharif sought the people's promise to get their mandate respected.

In the subsequent tweet, Imran said that Sharif is to realize people getting discontented after repeatedly hearing "poor umpiring" excuses. "Around 50 percent of the people here are those who have just come to watch the scene", said bystander Nazakat Ali.

Ashamed of Boy Scout speech
Scouting is about bringing young men together to learn how to be a good citizen of the United States and the world. Following the speech, the President of the scouts issued a formal apology for those who took offense from it.

Qadri has asked his supporters to wait for his call for a rally along the same Grand Trunk Road that Sharif chose for the path of his rally.

On July 29, Pakistani Supreme Court chose to remove Sharif following corruption investigation into his family.

Sharif's governing Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz party, which has a solid majority in parliament, elected Abbasi as his replacement within four days of the court decision.
