Punjab Chief Minister and younger brother of Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif was elected unopposed the President of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz at a convention of the party's General Council on Tuesday.

In his first address after officially taking the reins of the party, the younger Sharif said no one from the party can replace Nawaz Sharif -- the former Prime Minister who was ousted by the country's apex court last year.

Prime Minister ShahidKhaqanAbbasi, Nawaz Sharif and other bigwigs of PML-N were also part of the convention.

Shehbaz Sharif took the stage and expressed his gratitude to Nawaz Sharif saying: "I have been selected as the President of the PML-N. It is an important but difficult task for me. I am aware of the responsibility that has been bestowed on me." "Nawaz was our Quaid today, tomorrow and forever," he added.
