 Profile of elected Punjab Chief Minister Mian Mohammad Shahbaz sharif
 

Born in Lahore in 1950, Mian Mohammad Shahbaz Sharif is the younger brother of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif. He recently served as Punjab’s chief minister and also held the post from 1997-1999, before former military ruler Pervez Musharraf exiled the Sharif brothers to Saudi Arabia.

Considered a workaholic, Shahbaz likes to term himself Khadim-i-Aala (chief servant) rather than chief minister. He was also elected president of PML-N twice — in 2002 and 2006. In March 2012, Shahbaz was elected president of the PML-N’s Punjab chapter.

Shahbaz often uses revolutionary poetry in speeches and during public meetings. He has also been mocked by television anchors for attempting to imitate Pakistan Peoples Party’s Zulfikar Ali Bhutto by toppling microphones at emotional junctures during public addresses.

Shahbaz is the second son of Mian Mohammad Sharif. He is an influential businessman and jointly owns Ittefaq Group of Companies. He was also elected president of Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industries in 1985.

Shahbaz was first elected MPA to the Punjab Assembly in 1988. His term lasted until the assemblies and in 1990 he chose to run for a National Assembly seat, returning as an MNA. However, in 1993 he again stood for a provincial assembly seat and became leader of the opposition in Punjab Assembly. His term ended in 1996 when the assemblies were dissolved.

After his win in the 1997 election, Shahbaz earned the opportunity to serve the largest province of the country for the first time and remained its chief minister until Musharraf’s military coup of 1999.

Following his return from nearly a decade-long exile, Shahbaz became chief minister of Punjab for the second time after PML-N won the majority number of seats in the province in the 2008 election.

Shahbaz is considered a strong and determined character among Pakistani politicians as well as a competent administrator. However, projects initiated by him such as ‘sasti roti’ and the laptop schemehave been sharply criticised. Meanwhile, projects like Ashyiana housing scheme and Daanish schools were appreciated to some extent.

Shahbaz was also criticised for the recently launched Metro Bus service in Lahore as an act of favouritism at the cost of other parts of Punjab. Nevertheless, under Shahbaz’s recent administration, overall law and order situation in Punjab remained relatively better than in the remaining three provinces of the country.

He, along with Nawaz, have started campaigning in the run up to the 2013 election and are visiting all corners of the country in a bid to woo voters away from rivals PPP and Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaaf.

PESHAWAR, May 31 (APP): Central Secretary General of  Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and the newly elected Chief Minister Pervez Khan Khattak is a senior and experienced politician, who was elected the member of Provincial Assembly for record five times.
Born at the residence of noted government contractor Hastam Khan (late) on Jan 1, 1950 at village Manky Sharif in the politically fertile district of Nowshera, Pervez Khattak received his early education at the Aitchison College, Lahore more or less in the same years when PTI chairman Imran Khan was also a student and both were reported to be class-fellows.
He did his Senior Cambridge from Aitchison College and later completed graduation from Gordon College, Rawalpindi.
Khattak had started his political career as a member of the  district council in 1983 and later jumped to the national mainstream politics.  He was elected to the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Assembly for record five times, the last time on May 11, 2013. 
In general election 2013, Khattak won the National Assembly seat NA-5 Nowshera-I and provincial assembly seat, PK-13 in Nowshera-II from the PTI platform and defeated his political opponents with huge margin.
Also, he remained the provincial minister of industries twice and once served as irrigation minister in the ANP-led government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Later, he resigned from the Ministry of Irrigation due to difference with past government and joined PTI with a mission to serve his people with more dedication and zeal.
As a true democrat, he contested PTI;s intra party election 2013 and lost the party’s provincial president Asad Qaiser with a narrow margin. However, he did not disappoint and made inroads in the party by defeating senior PTI leader Dr. Arif Alvi on post of Central General Secretary.
He also remained the first district nazim in Nowshera. He belonged to a political family of Nowshera. His cousin Nasrullah Khattak was the chief minister of the province when Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was the prime minister of Pakistan.
During his long political career, Pervez Khattak also remained the provincial president of the Pakistan People’s Party-Sherpao (now renamed Qaumi Watan Party).
Khattak will take oath as 16th Chief Minister of KP at Governor House Peshawar at 6pm today. KP Governor Engr Shaukatullah Khan will administer oath to him. Since the inception of Pakistan, Pervez Khattak is the 16th elected chief minister of KP. 
The newly elected CM Pervez Khattak told APP that priority of his government would be establishment of peace, good governance and elimination of corruption. He said zero tolerance would be adopted against corruption and reforms would be introduced in education, health and social sectors.
He said opposition would be taken along on national issues to put the
province on tract of development. He thanked the MPAs for reposing full confidence in him as Leader of the House.
Meanwhile, success of Pervez Khan Khattak has sparked jubilation in his native district of Nowshera. The people and his supporters have distributed sweets and danced on beats of drums.
