Nawaz Sharif recommends Shehbaz Sharif’s name as Pak PM

In Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif has recommended his younger brother Shehbaz Sharif’s name to be his replacement as the Prime Minister.

Shehbaz Sharif is currently the Chief Minister of Punjab province.

According to a media, after the Supreme Court disqualified Nawaz Sharif over the Panama Papers scandal yesterday, he met the senior leaders of his party, Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz), and recommended Shehbaz Sharif’s name, after an interim premier has served the 45-day period.

A name has not been announced for the interim Prime Minister, who will fill the 45-day vacuum until Shehbaz Sharif is elected to a National Assembly seat.

According to reports, two names have surfaced for the interim Prime Minister, Khawaja Asif and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi. Sources said, a final decision will be made during the party’s consultative meeting today.
