This man may be Pakistan's next Prime Minister



New Delhi: After ignominious departure of Nawaz Sharif from the Prime Minister's chair of Pakistan, the most common question on everyone's mind is: What holds for the future of Pakistan? Will democarcy prevail or it will be a military coup?



 

Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif resigned on Friday after the Supreme Court disqualified him from holding the post following a probe that revealed illegal family wealth stashed abroad.

A five-judge bench unanimously disqualified Sharif from his post after an investigative panel linked his children to offshore companies, showing that their wealth was far above their legitimate earnings.

The sources in the corridors of power of Pakistan suggest that Nawaz Sharif's younger brother Shahbaz Sharif is the front-runner for the vacant post. As the head of the Pakistan Muslim League, Pakistan's ruling party, Nawaz Sharif has the power to nominate his successor.

But the party has to get an interim PM until Shahbaz Sharif gets elected to the National Assembly. 

It is an open secret that Nawaz wanted his daughter Maryam Nawaz to be his heir. But there are two stumbling blocks: Her name also appears in the Panama Paper Case and she does not hold any elected office.
