Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is set to take the reins of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) today once again after more than six years.

Nawaz Sharif will be elected the president of the party through intra-party polls rescheduled from the second week of May to May 28 aka Youm-e-Takbir.

In 2017, Nawaz lost both the prime minister’s office and the presidency of PML-N after the ruling of the Panama Papers case. Hence, the catchphrase “Mujhy Kyun Nikala” (Why was I removed?) used by the party at that time.


Rana Sanaullah previously stated that party leaders had a complete consensus on Nawaz being the leader of the party.
