Ishaq Dar, a former finance minister and top leader in the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, recently disclosed that he will be returning to Pakistan in accordance with the instructions of Nawaz Sharif, a previous prime minister of Pakistan.
Ishaq Dar, when speaking to journalists in London, stated, “On the directives of the previous prime minister Nawaz, I will be traveling to Pakistan during the fourth week of July.”
The PML-N stalwart went on to disclose that he has been issued a new passport and that his physician has given him clearance to travel. Ishaq Dar has stated that his legal team will petition the court for protected bail prior to his return to Pakistan, referring to the cases that have been lodged against him as “political victimization.”
The former minister of finance has stated that upon his arrival he will take the oath of office required to become a senator, and the party will decide whether or not he should be appointed minister of finance.

In 2018, Dar won a technocrat seat in the Senate for Punjab, where he will represent the state. Because he was still in London at the time, he was unable to take the oath. On the other hand, due to the fact that he did not show up in court on May 8, 2018, his membership in the SC was suspended.
It is important to point out here that the former finance minister of Pakistan fled the country four years ago, but he is still wanted in various instances in Pakistan.
