Shahbaz Sharif to be new Prime Minister of Pakistan


Srinagar, March 3: In a significant political development, Shahbaz Sharif has been appointed as the Prime Minister of Pakistan following a period of intense negotiations and parliamentary proceedings.

The seasoned politician and brother of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif, is believed to have been installed by the Pakistan Army.

His ascension to the premiership comes at a crucial juncture for Pakistan, with pressing economic challenges and regional dynamics shaping the nation’s agenda.
Pakistan is also facing internal challenges with people at large in Pakistan accusing Pakistan of rigging polls.

Sharif’s tenure is anticipated to be marked by efforts to revitalize the economy, address social issues, and navigate Pakistan’s complex geopolitical landscape.

“Congratulations to @CMShehbaz on being elected as the new Prime Minister of Pakistan. Wishing you all the best as you embark on this important journey of leadership. May your tenure bring prosperity, progress, and unity to our beloved nation. Amen” posted caretaker Prime Minister of Pakistan on X.

Sharief is likely to take oath to the office shortly.


Shehbaz’s challenger Omar Ayub Khan of jailed former prime minister Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) secured 92 votes.
National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq announced the results appointing Shehbaz as the 24th prime minister of Pakistan.
Shehbaz will be administered the oath of office on Monday at the Presidential mansion, Aiwan-e-Sadr.
The session of the new parliament convened amid ruckus and sloganeering by PTI-backed lawmakers.
The PTI-backed lawmakers shouted slogans of ‘Azaadi (freedom)’ and Qaidi #804′, a reference to incarcerated Imran Khan. Some of the PTI-backed lawmakers also held posters of Imran Khan.
In response to the pro-Imran slogans, PML-N lawmakers shouted ‘long live Nawaz’ and waved wristwatches at the opposition benches — referring to the Toshakhana corruption case against Khan.
The PML-N party supremo Nawaz Sharif was the first person who voted for Shehbaz in the race for the election of the prime minister.
Before the vote, the PTI said the graceful thing that PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif could have done was to accept defeat.
“..but he chose to live his life in shame. Every day will be worse than the previous one for these Coalition Of Losers, especially Nawaz Sharif & Maryam!” the party said in a post on X.
