Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday officially nominated his younger brother Shehbaz Sharif for the Prime Minister's position, saying he is the "best choice" for the post and the priority of the upcoming six-party coalition government would be to "fix" Pakistan's beleaguered economy. The nomination was filed at the parliamentary members' meeting of the PML-N in Islamabad with Nawaz in the chair.

“Nawaz officially nominated his younger brother Shehbaz Sharif and party loyalist Sardar Ayaz Sadiq for the posts of prime minister and speaker of the National Assembly. The parliamentary

party endorsed Shehbaz’s name and also reposed its full confidence in the leadership of Nawaz,” PML-N central deputy secretary Attaullah Tarar said in a statement after the meeting.

Shehbaz had led a coalition government till August 2023 after the ouster of jailed cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan before a caretaker government took over following the announcement of general elections. His nomination for the PM post came as a surprise for many within and outside the party as Nawaz was expected to return to the role after coming back to Pakistan from a four-year exile and managing to get prior convictions removed.
