The government has decided to remove Nawaz Sharif from The Exit Control List (ECL). The former prime minister’s London departure is expected next week, according to local media reports.
According to sources, after the cabinet approval, the former prime minister may depart abroad next week.
The petition has been submitted by Shahbaz Sharif which states that Nawaz Sharif wants to go abroad for treatment.
Sources say that the application submitted by Shahbaz Sharif has been received by the Interior Secretary and Interior Ministry officials are reviewing the application from legal aspects.
According to sources, Shahbaz Sharif has also given up all the political engagements and he is also likely to depart abroad with Nawaz Sharif.
The Interior Ministry had named the former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz in the ECL in Federal Cabinet meeting in August this year.
Earlier, Pakistan Muslim League-N vice president Maryam Nawaz has said that former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s health is bad, he should go out of the country immediately for treatment.

During the hearing of Chaudhry Sugar Mill case in Accountability Court, Maryam Nawaz said that her passport is in custody of court so she cannot travel with her father despite her wishes.
Maryam Nawaz said, “This is a serious problem of Nawaz Sharif’s health. I lost my mother last year. Therefore, Nawaz Sharif should take advantage of this bail and go wherever he gets better treatment facilities in the world.”
On the question of mobilization in politics, Maryam Nawaz said that she was more concerned about her father’s health than politics.
She says she spends 24 hours looking after her father instead of nurses and staff. Politics will continue to happen, but parents will never meet again.
Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has shifted from services hospital to Jati Umra a few days ago. Special treatment arrangements have been made at his home.
