Sharif stepped down after being disqualified by the Supreme Court on July 28 and after staying in Murree and Islamabad, embarked on road journey to his home in Lahore in the company of thousands of his supporters.

As at previous stops along the route, Sharif railed against the court's decision, insisting his conscience was "clean" against allegations of corruption.

On Friday a party official said Sharif's wife would contest the parliamentary seat left vacant after his removal.

"Nawaz Sharif's lions have defeated you in the elections in Azad Kashmir, Gilgit-Baltistan besides local government and cantonment board elections in recent years", Kirmani said while speaking to media and party workers after filing the nomination papers.

Nawaz Sharif said that he didn't receive any salary from his son, and how can someone disqualify him on receiving money from his son.

A five-member Supreme Court bench last month disqualified Sharif for dishonesty and ruled that corruption cases be filed against him and his children over the Panama Papers scandal, forcing the prime minister to quit for the record third time.

Pakistan's sacked premier Nawaz Sharif said today he will strive hard to replace the country's old and "flawed" system with a new law which will put an end to the unceremonious ouster of the prime ministers. He also criticised PML-N's GT Road "homecoming rally" saying no senior leader of the ruling party took part in it. "The people should ask them why they ousted Nawaz Sharif when he had done no corruption", he said.

He asked people to stand by him to make sure that their vote is respected. "If I was corrupt then I would have been ashamed", he said. "I have never seen such crowd in Muridke", he said.

Nawaz asked the people, "I don't expect you to reinstate me, but I want you to support me for the betterment of this country".

Sharif in his defence said that he would personally visit the boy's home "and try to help his family for life".
