Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Shehbaz Sharif has been elected the prime minister for the second time in a vote by Pakistan's newly formed parliament. With this, Sharif returned to the post he held until last August, when the parliament was dissolved ahead of the general election, and a caretaker government took charge. He secured 201 votes in the 336-member National Assembly, prevailing over rival Omar Ayub Khan, who got 92 votes.
