who can be the prime minister of pakistan
Opposition parties have said that they will not contest the bypolls. But, three of these names are such that most people are looking at. Some reports have suggested that the Leader of the Opposition in the Pakistani Parliament Shahbaz Sharif, former President Asif Ali Zardari and former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi may become Prime Ministers of Pakistan. However, so far no one’s name has been publicly sealed by the opposition.
Shahbaz Sharif is the Leader of the Opposition in the Pakistani Parliament. Apart from being the brother of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, he is also the head of the main opposition party PML-N. Shahbaz Sharif has also been the Chief Minister of Punjab. Mostly, he is chosen by the opposition for the post of Prime Minister. But, there are serious allegations of corruption against him. Presently he is out on bail.
Asif Ali Zardari
Asif Ali Zardari is second in the race for the new prime minister of Pakistan. Asif Ali Zardari has been the President of Pakistan. He is also the husband of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto and chairman of the main opposition Pakistan Peoples Party. He has also faced serious corruption charges. Imran Khan has described Asif Ali Zardari as his number one enemy.
Shahid Khaqan Abbasi
Senior PML-N leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi is also in the race to become the new Prime Minister of Pakistan. Abbasi had previously been the Prime Minister of Pakistan. He is considered very special for Nawaz Sharif. Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was made the prime minister when the Supreme Court sent Nawaz Sharif to jail. He has experience and a clean political career.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is at the last position in the list. He is the son of former PM Benazir Bhutto and former President Asif Ali Zardari. He has fought street fight on behalf of Pakistan Peoples Party. It is very popular among youth in Pakistan. However, lack of experience can get in their way.
