LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif has nominated his brother Shahbaz Sharif for the post of chief minister of Punjab, Express News reported on Thursday.

Shahbaz had served as Punjab CM in the last government.

Shahbaz, in his earlier tenure, was equally praised and criticised for his decisions such as Metro Bus project and free laptops to students.

In Sindh, former chief minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah is said to be the frontrunner for the slot and sources in Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) told The Express Tribune that the party would officially nominate him for the post soon.

If this is done, Shah will serve as CM Sindh for a record third time.
