President Ghani wishes ailing Sharif speedy recovery
KABUL: President Ashraf Ghani on Sunday wished Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif a swift recovery from his heart problem.
Currently in London for an open-heart surgery, Sharif’s absence has triggered calls from his political foes for the nomination of a new prime minister.
In a message on his Twitter account, Ghani wrote: “We pray for his speedy recuperation.” The prime minister is scheduled to undergo the surgery on Tuesday (tomorrow).
Sharif is supervising government affairs from London. Critics, including former chief justice Iftikhar Chaudhry, want the premier to be sacked.
