Nawaz Sharif’s Profession & Career
Punjab was the birthplace of Sharif’s political career. He was first elected Prime Minister of Pakistan in October 1990 as the leader of the Pakistan Muslim League. In defiance of US mandates, he ushered in economic reforms, privatized a slew of state-owned enterprises, and endorsed Pakistan’s security against a nuclear India.
The deterioration of the economy, the mounting foreign debts, the ongoing dispute with India, rampant corruption, and separatist revolutions engorged Sharif into a series of disastrous rulings. Musharraf deposed him and promptly tried him on terrorism charges. He went into exile for ten years in 2000.
Sharif made a spectacular comeback in 2013, winning a third term as Prime Minister before being forced to resign in 2017 after the leaked Panama papers revealed Sharif and his children owned foreign companies and properties illegally.
