Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif is the 18th and current Prime Minister of Pakistan in office since June 2013.

A veteran politician and industrialist, he previously served as Prime Minister from November 1990 to July 1993 and from February 1997 to October 1999.

Sharif is the president of Pakistan Muslim League, which is currently Pakistan's largest political party, and has formed the government.

As the owner of Ittefaq Group, a leading business conglomerate, he is also one of the country's wealthiest people.

He is commonly known as the "Lion of the Punjab".

Nawaz Sharif entered politics in the 1980s when in the general elections of 1985, he won with an overwhelming majority, both in the National and Provincial Assemblies.

On 9 April 1985, he was sworn-in as Chief Minister of Punjab.

On 31 May 1988, he was appointed caretaker Chief Minister, after the dismissal of Assemblies by General Zia.

Nawaz Sharif was again elected as Chief Minister after the 1988 general elections.

After Zia's death and Benazir Bhutto's being elected Prime Minister in 1988, Sharif emerged as opposition leader from the conservative Pakistan Muslim League.
