Islamabad: The Pakistan Muslim League-N had decided that Shahbaz Sharif, ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s brother, will be the country’s new PM.

PML-N leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has been tapped as the interim Prime Minister till Sharif is elected by the parliament.

Shahbaz’s ascension to the Prime Minister’s office was considered to be a foregone conclusion, as the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) continues to hold a hefty majority in Parliament and can independently vote him into office.
