Pakistan hunts for new PM as Sharif's ousting divides countryPakistan's ruling party was to meet with parliamentarians Saturday to begin nominations for an interim prime minister after the Supreme Court ousted premier Nawaz Sharif, a polarising move which plunged the country into political uncertainty. Sharif became the 15th prime minister in Pakistan's 70-year history, which it has been under military rule for roughly half of, to be ousted before completing a full term when he was disqualified from office by the Supreme Court Friday. The decision removed Sharif from the leadership as well as his parliamentary seat with no clear successor in place.
