Shahid Khaqan Abbasi is Pak PM till Sharif Jr. becomes MP

Islamabad : Pakistan’s ruling PML-N party on Saturday named former petroleum minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi as the interim Prime Minister until ousted premier Nawaz Sharif’s younger brother Shehbaz is elected as a Member of Parliament to succeed him as his eventual successor.

The decision was taken at a meeting headed by Nawaz Sharif and attended by the top party leaders who rallied behind the Sharifs, the country’s most powerful political family. The Supreme Court on Friday had disqualified 67-year-old

Nawaz Sharif for dishonesty and ruled that corruption cases be filed against him and his children over the Panama Papers scandal, forcing the embattled leader out of office.
