The PML-N observes October 12 as a black day in commemoration of Musharraf's coup against the Sharif's government in 1999. Sharif was first elected prime minister in 1990 but was sacked three years later on corruption charges. He returned to power in 1997, but was ousted in the 1999 coup by Musharraf, who brought criminal charges against him for hijacking, terrorism and attempted murder.
