Nawaz Sharif will be Pakistan PM if PML-N gets majority: Shehbaz

Shehbaz Sharif has said that his brother Nawaz will be the next prime minister of Pakistan if their party wins the elections

Nawaz Sharif will be Pakistan PM if PML-N gets majority: Shehbaz

Pakistan's former premier Shehbaz Sharif Wednesday said that his elder brother Nawaz Sharif would become prime minister if his party gets majority in the parliamentary elections but in case of a split mandate, the decision about a new leader would be taken after talks with coalition partners.

Shehbaz, who is also president of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), made the comments while talking to the Geo News. He was asked who would be the next prime minister.

"Nawaz Sharif will be the prime minister if we get a simple majority. But in case of a split mandate, the decision will be made after talks with coalition partners," he said.

Shehbaz was also asked if he would prefer to become the prime minister instead of putting the burden of the top job on his brother who may not be able to discharge responsibilities properly due to advanced age and health issues.

"My response to this question is the same that I gave to dictators on different occasions: that Nawaz Sharif is my leader and prime minister,” he said.

Shehbaz already revealed in different interviews that the powerful establishment on different occasions offered him to become the prime minister instead of his brother but he always rejected the offer.

The apparent reason for the offer could be that Shehbaz always maintained good ties with the establishment.
