Pakistan PM Shehbaz Sharif resigns as PML-N president, elder brother Nawaz Sharif set to take over post

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Monday resigned as the president of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). After the resignation, his elder brother and former premier Nawaz Sharif is set to become the next chief of the ruling party amid internal strife.

“The tumultuous events of 2017, which resulted in the “unjust” disqualification of Nawaz from the Prime Minister’s Office and the presidency of the party, and said he was entrusted with the responsibility of assuming the presidency of the party,” Shehbaz in his resignation letter addressed to the PML-N secretary general, said.

Shehbaz Sharif said that his brother had entrusted him with the responsibility of assuming the party presidency in the face of adversity and added that it was a duty he had “upheld with utmost dedication and sincerity”.

“However, I am cognisant that this role has always been viewed as a trust … bestowed upon me by our revered leader,” the 72-year-old said.
