Parliament elects Shahid Khaqan Abbasi as new Prime Minister of Pakistan

Imran Khan and his party representatives are to address the rally participants
The parliament's lower house - the National Assembly - is scheduled to meet at 3 p.m. Tuesday in Islamabad.
Shahbaz, now chief minister of the vast eastern province of Punjab home to more than half of Pakistan's 190 million people, will have to resign and fight a parliamentary by-election before he can take over as prime minister.
"I will continue to fight for my vision of Pakistan", he said.
Sharif said he was removed by the Supreme Court on "baseless allegations".
Opposition politicians who say PML-N wants to turn the nuclear-armed nation in a family fiefdom have begun to turn their crosshairs on Shahbaz, accusing him of corruption and vowing to use the judicial system to bring him down. Being chief executive of the country, we understand he will be under lot of pressure as on the one hand his family members will be appearing before the accountability court while on the other, he will have to keep focus on challenges facing the country especially on the security front.
Unfortunately, however, there are also reasons to question the court's decision.
"They are family parties", he said. The Sharif government had reportedly warned the military to do more to crack down on terrorist groups operating in the country, or risk facing global isolation.
The new Pakistan prime minister faces a barrage of challenges and perhaps the incoming leader would be divested of significant power that the government used to enjoy under ex-premier Nawaz Sharif, the U.S. media said.
But Pakistanis were divided on whether it set the country's democratic progress back, with supporters and commentators and lamenting the ousting of a democratically elected premier on a "technicality" in what some termed a "judicial coup".
If it does accept Shahbaz as prime minister it would make sure that he toes its line of anti-Indianism, with a clear and sustained tilt towards China.
He was the chairman of national flag carrier Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) from 1997 to 1999, until General Pervez Musharraf overthrew Sharif´s second government. In a country known for its abuse of laws appealing to Islam, Pakistan can expect to hear more frequent references to constitutional clauses based on "Islamic injunctions" to chastise democratically elected governments which are seen to be wayward.
