PML-N leadership decides to remove Finance Minister Ishaq Dar

LONDON: The leadership of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has decided to remove Finance Minister Ishaq Dar in the wake of inquiry into corruption allegations against him, Samaa reported.

According to our correspondent, the decision to take resignation from Ishaq Dar was taken at a high-level consultative meeting chaired by ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in London.

The development came three days after National Accountability Bureau (NAB) seized bank accounts and properties of Ishaq Dar, amid calls for his resignation.
