Pakistan: Shehbaz gets walkover to PM’s office as PTI bails out of poll


Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Shehbaz Sharif was elected the 23rd Prime Minister unopposed on Monday after the candidate nominated by his predecessor Imran Khan’s PTI, former foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, announced in parliament that his party was boycotting the election and resigning en masse from the National Assembly.
