The Pakistan Muslim League (N), the country's ruling party has approved Shehbaz Sharif the next Prime Minister after his brother Nawaz Sharif had been dismissed on July 28, Dawn publication reported Saturday citing sources.
Shahbaz Sharif has controlled Punjab for much of the last decade and has seen massive development on Pakistan's most populous province, which is a stronghold of the Sharif led PML-N.
Abbasi, the 58-year-old loyalist of Sharif, is expected to serve for 45 days and will resign to let Shehbaz succeed as permanent premier, party sources said.
The final nomination will be recognised in the party's parliamentary meeting.
Shehbaz Sharif, The Chief Minister of Punjab and the brother of ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, will replace Nawaz as the Prime Minister of Pakistan. "His departure would have an adverse effect on Pakistan's foreign relations", said Farooqi.
The decision was taken in Islamabad during a meeting headed by Sharif and attended by the top party leaders who support the country's most powerful political family.
"Not a single penny (of) corruption has been proved in this decision against Nawaz Sharif and the people of Pakistan also know it", information minister Maryam Aurangzeb told reporters after the decision.
Shahbaz will likely seek election to the National Assembly from Nawaz Sharif's constituency, which is a PML-N stronghold.
Shehbaz is not a member of the National Assembly or Senate, and in order to be appointed as the Prime Minister of the country, he will have to get elected to the Senate. The election of the interim Prime Minister will take place on Tuesday.
Following the court verdict, Sharif quit.
No civilian prime minister in Pakistan has ever completed a full term in office.
The ouster of Nawaz was politically controversial, with opposition figures celebrating publicly in the capital city of Islamabad, handing out candy in the streets. It angered his party leaders who note that their party enjoys a majority and will stay in power until general elections are held in June 2018.
Sharif was later sentenced to an additional 14 years in prison on corruption charges, but he was released after six months when Saudi Arabia brokered a deal to allow him to go into exile there.
The move comes amid a serious political crisis that has gripped Pakistan, with constitutional experts and lawmakers wondering who is running the government after Sharif's disqualification.
