New Prime Minister Of Pakistan
Shehbaz Sharif was elected by Pakistan’s parliament as the 23rd Prime Minister of Pakistan on Monday. The decision was made possible as the majority of lawmakers from Imran Khan’s party walked out.
Shehbaz was the only candidate suited by the parliament to be the Prime Minister. He is the brother of dishonoured former PM Nawaz Sharif and it is doubtful that under his supervision the country will move forward towards peace. Major economic problems of Pakistan such as high inflation and energy crisis need to be taken care of first.
Sharif was Elected With 174 votes
Over 100 lawmakers of the Pakistan Justice Party walked out of the national assembly in protest against Imran Khan. Then with 174 votes, Shehbaz Sharif was elected to be the 23rd PM.
Announced by the acting speaker, Asad Sadiq, “Mohammad Shahbaz Sharif is declared to be the prime minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.”
