Top leaders of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) – Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and his father Asif Ali Zardari – have arrived in Dubai on a special plane, sources said. Geo news on Sunday.

The sources inside PPP said Zardari would stay in Dubai for a few days during which he is likely to meet Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif, who arrived in the UAE a day early.

Bilawal, who is also the country’s foreign minister, and Zardari’s visit to the UAE came amid reports that Nawaz plans to return to the country.

The PML-N supremo has been living in London since November 2019 after being allowed to travel to the UK on medical grounds by a court.

The top lords of the PML-N-led coalition government are likely to discuss important issues, including the prevailing economic challenges and upcoming general elections in the Dubai gang.

Nawaz reached Dubai from London on Saturday afternoon, while his daughter and PML-N Senior Vice President Maryam along with her son Junaid Safdar and other members of the family arrived from Lahore.

The three-time former prime minister resides at the Emirates Hill residence of Finance Minister Ishaq Dar’s son and Sharif’s son-in-law Ali Dar, who is married to Asma Sharif, Maryam’s younger sister.

Earlier today, PML-N chief Nawaz and his daughter Maryam met members of Dubai’s royal family after reaching the country in the Middle East.

Video obtained by Geo news showed Nawaz and Maryam leaving Ali Dar’s residence in a retinue of cars, with the protocol of the Dubai authorities. The PML-N supremo traveled from London with Hussain Nawaz, Asma and Dr. Adnan Khan.

According to sources, Nawaz held several key meetings in Dubai where the roadmap for his return was discussed in detail, including Pakistan’s economic and political future.

The PML-N sources said that the former prime minister will return to Pakistan in the near future.

Sources have revealed that a Sunday afternoon meeting had the longest discussion, but those in attendance have not been disclosed so far.

Discussions focused in particular on resolving legal entanglements that could prevent Nawaz’s return, with the expectation that a solution would be found soon.

On the other hand, there are reports that the PML-N supremo will spend Eid ul Adha with his family in Dubai in the first week of July. In addition, he has special meetings with the royal family in Saudi Arabia.

Hopes for Nawaz’s return to Pakistan increased after the National Assembly earlier today amended a law limiting an MP’s disqualification to a maximum of five years, paving the way for those barred for life from holding public office.
