Pakistan: Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Monday resigned as the President of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), as reported by the media reports. 

Shehbaz Sharif has submitted his resignation as party president to Nawaz Sharif, the PML-N supremo.


In light of the senior politician's resignation, the PML-N has decided to call a general council meeting in Lahore on May 28 to elect a new president.

The PML-N had earlier announced to hold general council meeting on May 11, reported media sources. 

In a recent presser, Rana Sanaullah stated that the Punjab chapter of the PML-N has asked Nawaz Sharif to take up the party presidency once more, stressing the importance of his leadership to the party's achievements.

He stated that a resolution asking Nawaz Sharif to lead the party once more through this trying time was passed during the PML-N Punjab meeting.

It is significant to remember that the former prime minister was prohibited from holding any public position after his conviction in 2018.

On November 29 and December 12, respectively, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) cleared him in the Avenfield and Al-Azizia matters. 

The former prime minister ran in and was elected from NA-130 Lahore in the General Elections of 2024 following his acquittal.
