Chinese President Xi Jinping Extends Congratulations to Shehbaz Sharif on Becoming Prime Minister

Chinese President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Qiang extended congratulations to PML-N leader Shehbaz Sharif on his election as the Prime Minister of Pakistan. President Jinping expressed confidence in Pakistan’s potential to achieve new and greater milestones in national development under PM Sharif’s leadership, emphasizing unity across all sectors of Pakistan.

He called for the continuation of the traditional friendship between China and Pakistan, urging strengthened exchanges and cooperation in various fields and the joint development of an upgraded version of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

President Jinping expressed hope for the deepening of the all-weather strategic cooperative partnership and the creation of a closer China-Pakistan community with a shared future.

Chinese Premier Li Qiang of the State Council also conveyed a congratulatory message to Sharif. The PML-N leader secured his position as Prime Minister for the second time after winning 201 votes in the National Assembly.

In his victory speech, Shehbaz Sharif thanked allied parties for their support, while PTI-backed lawmakers chanted slogans. He expressed gratitude to his elder brother Nawaz Sharif, referring to him as the builder of Pakistan.

Reflecting on the May 9 riots, Sharif emphasized that despite past persecution, the PML-N and PPP never attacked institutions. He addressed the economic challenges facing the country, highlighting a Rs700 billion deficit and the reliance on loans for development, health, and education sectors.

Shehbaz Sharif also asserted that his party had eradicated terrorism but criticized the previous government for its resurgence, urging a collective effort to end terrorism in the country. He called on the PTI to abandon the politics of agitation and engage in discussions on election reforms. Sharif invited the opposition to collaborate on a charter of economy.

Shehbaz Sharif’s candidacy, supported by the Pakistan Peoples Party, Muttahida Qaumi Movement, Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid, and Istehkam-e-Pakistan Party, was part of a power-sharing formula agreed upon between the PMLN and PPP.

Independents, including those backed by the PTI, emerged as the largest group in the National Assembly, with PMLN and PPP following closely. PTI candidates elected to the house joined the SIC in an attempt to be recognized as a party in the Assembly, aiming for reserved seats through this strategy.
