Shehbaz Sharif given guard of honour at PM House


Newly elected Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Tuesday was given a guard of honour at the Prime Minister’s House as he assumed the office of the top slot.

PM Shehbaz Sharif reviewed the guard of honour as contingents of the armed forces presented a salute to him.

The prime minister was introduced to the officials and staff of the PM House.

Shehbaz Sharif was sworn in as the country’s 23rd prime minister a day earlier after he won a no-confidence vote from the National Assembly after his predecessor Imran Khan was ousted through a vote of no-confidence by the joint opposition.

Shortly before the election, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf announced to boycott the assembly session and tendered their en masse resignations.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Maryam Nawaz Sharif along with Hamza Shehbaz Sharif also witnessed the National Assembly proceedings from the guest gallery.

On Saturday night, the joint opposition passed the no-confidence resolution against Imran Khan after a lengthy session stretching over 14 hours.

The Cabinet Division de-notified 52 members of the federal cabinet including 25 federal ministers and four ministers of state after Imran Khan lost the majority following the no-confidence motion against him sailed through the lower house of the parliament.
