New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today congratulated the newly elected Prime Minister of Pakistan, Shahbaz Sharif.

Congratulating Mr. Sharif, PM Modi also sent a message that “India wants peace and stability in a terror-free zone.”

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President and former Leader of the Opposition Shahbaz Sharif was elected the 23rd Prime Minister of Pakistan by the National Assembly after securing 174 votes.

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s younger brother was set to occupy the top post after the former Prime Minister Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government was ousted from power following a no-confidence motion against the government.

As a result of voting on the no-confidence motion, the Imran Khan-led government was defeated by 174 votes in favor of the no-confidence motion.

Mr Sharif’s candidature as the opposition’s choice for the post of prime minister was disclosed by Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari during a joint press conference of opposition parties on March 30.
