Nawaz Sharif, the former premier of Pakistan, reclaimed his position as president of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-N party in a recent election.

This marks his return to a leadership role he had held in 2017, prior to being embroiled in corruption allegations that led to his ousting from office.

The February 8 elections saw the PML-N ascend to power, a victory contested by Sharif’s political rival, former premier Imran Khan, who alleged electoral misconduct. Despite the controversy, Sharif’s younger brother, Shehbaz Sharif, now heads a coalition government while Nawaz Sharif serves as a member of Parliament.

In 2017, Nawaz Sharif faced disqualification from public office by the Supreme Court over allegations of concealing financial assets, which he vehemently denies. However, last year saw a significant turn of events as his conviction and sentences were overturned, paving the way for his return to active political and party roles.

After a period of self-imposed exile in London for medical treatment, Nawaz Sharif made a highly anticipated return to Pakistan in October, during the tenure of Imran Khan’s government. Khan’s subsequent ousting via a no-confidence vote in 2022 resulted in his imprisonment on multiple counts.

Recently, there has been an increase in insecurity in Pakistan due to attacks by several militant groups, including the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). These groups have intensified their activities, leading to growing concerns about the stability and safety of the country.
