'Cannot even think of replacing Nawaz': Shahbaz Sharif appointed PML-N president
Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif was elected the PML-N president unopposed at a convention of the party's General Council on Tuesday.
Addressing the council's meeting in Islamabad after his election, Shahbaz said he was honoured to have been chosen as the party president but that no one, including himself, could even think about taking the place of Nawaz Sharif, who was removed as party president by the Supreme Court but was later rechristened as the party's 'leader for life'.
"I believe Nawaz Sharif is the only Pakistani politician and leader that can be called Jinnah's political heir," he told a roaring crowd chanting party slogans. "We are lucky to have been blessed with a Quaid [leader] like Nawaz Sharif."
Nawaz made Pakistan's defence "invincible" through atomic weapons, rejected $5 billion aid from the US and built motorways, he said. History will also remember Nawaz for eliminating terrorism through the sacrifices of armed forces and nearly eliminating load shedding, he added.
