Mr Sharif, who succeeds Imran Khan after his dramatic ouster following a midnight no-confidence vote on Saturday, is the younger brother of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
The Pakistan National Assembly elected Mr Sharif as the new prime minister on Monday, capping weeks of political turmoil in the country. His wearing-in from him is scheduled today late in the evening.
