The people of Pakistan have been congratulated on the peaceful transfer of power, according to Prime Minister (PM) Shehbaz Sharif.
“I want to express my heartfelt congratulations to the people of Pakistan on the peaceful transfer of power,” Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said on Twitter.
“It is a source of national pride that today, all of our institutions adhere to the Constitution as their guiding principle. If the stock market and the strengthening of the currency are any indicators, the journey towards our objectives has already begun.”
“We also look forward to continuing to create connections with other countries on the basis of mutual respect, equality, and peace.”
“Our first priority is on offering as much assistance as possible to all Pakistanis by addressing rising inflation and reviving the country’s stagnating economy,” the prime minister stated. Insha’Allah, we shall work together to transform Pakistan into a great nation. “Pakistan Zindabad!” exclaims the crowd.
Shehbaz Sharif elected as PM:
A National Assembly session boycotted by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) earlier in the day ended in the election of Shehbaz Sharif (PML-N) as Pakistan’s 23rd Prime Minister.
The session was presided over by Ayaz Sadiq, a member of the Panel of Chair, who stated that Mian Shehbaz Sharif had received 174 votes, while his opponent, PTI’s Shah Mahmood Qureshi, had earned zero votes due to the boycott of the session by the PTI.
The session was being presided over by Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri when it began, but shortly after PTI’s prime minister candidate Shah Mahmood Qureshi’s speech, the Deputy Speaker left, and PTI MNAs announced that they would not only boycott the election for prime minister but that they would also resign from their positions in the National Assembly. The reciting of the Holy Quran was followed by the playing of the national anthem, which marked the beginning of the session.
