The decision was taken in a meeting of ECP to look into the implications of the verdict announced by the Supreme Court on Wednesday.

However, "the party has issued its stance that Nawaz Sharif is our leader", he said, adding that the masses themselves would respond to the verdict in the election or even before.

Sharif was barred from office last July by the top court following a corruption probe into his family's finances, but was then re-elected by his party as PML-N president last October.

The decision was made through analysis of Articles 62, 63, and 63-A of the Constitution of Pakistan [text].

The Court has also declared null and void all decisions taken by Mr. Sharif as party chief after his disqualification as Prime Minister.
