LAHORE: A pair of twins – born in Raiwind, Lahore on the election day – were named Nawaz and Shahbaz Sharif, Express News reported on Friday. 

Parents of the twins, Siraj and his wife Zahida, were all set to vote in the May 11 elections when the wife felt unwell.

Standing in the voting line, Zahida had to be then shifted to a hospital immediately.

The couple decided to name their newborn children Nawaz and Shahbaz Sharif to commemorate the historic day and Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz’s (PML-N) win.

    Typically people use to choose the names of their ancestors as the last name. Ironic to choose someone else’s.

    @Usman Lakhani!
    How ironic it will be, if this little Nawaz Sharif became Chairman of PTI later on? :)

    hope they become good entrepreneurs and deal makers. The best thing about twins is “buy one get one free,” for the peril of one labour they get two babies :) best wishes fore the mom dad and the boys.
