  • Leadership vacuum after Nawaz Sharif

Cronyism is the biggest weakness that appear to stem from the fear of others. This impedes ability of Nawaz Sharif to deal effectively with other political parties. Poor public information and some inept Ministers are causing a drag on the party and not enabling it to bear full fruits of their effort. While, PMLN is expected to make the government at the Center, Punjab, Baluchistan, KPK, Gilgit Baltistan, it will have difficulty doing so beyond 2018, unless a transition is made to a new leadership that is perceived to be worthy of carrying the mantle forward

Having said that, with the current momentum and good work towards intiating infrastructure development, PMLN is likely to win the next elections with more seats (about 150) at the center.
