Nawaz Sharif has resigned as PM of Pakistan, Twitter Exploded with Hilarious Trolls

Nawaz Sharif has resigned as prime minister of Pakistan following a decision by the country’s Supreme Court to disqualify him from office.

The ruling came after a probe into his family’s wealth following the 2015 Panama Papers dump linking Mr Sharif’s children to offshore companies.

Mr Sharif has consistently denied any wrongdoing in the case.

The five judges reached a unanimous verdict in the Islamabad court, which was filled to capacity.

“Following the verdict, Nawaz Sharif has resigned from his responsibilities as prime minister,” a spokesman for Mr Sharif’s office said in a statement.

On social media, however, the news was treated with the usual levity and humour when the verdict came out. While some discussed the ramifications of the verdict for Sharif’s opponents like Imran Khan, others joked that Indian politicians can perhaps form a stable government in the country.

Here’s a look at some of the tweets.
