Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who is under pressure to quit following the Panama Papers leak, was today unanimously re-elected as president of his party Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz. The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in an intra-party election re-elected 66-year-old Sharif unopposed as no one contested his leadership. Senior party leader Raja Zafarul Haq, an old loyalist of Sharif, was elected PML-N chairman.
He was also elected unopposed. Senior party leaders Sartaj Aziz, Sir Anjam Khan, Yakoob Khan and Mir Changez Khan Marri were elected senior vice presidents. A five-member election committee headed by Chaudhry Jaffar Iqbal organised the election.
