Sharif, 72, first served as prime minister in 2022 at the head of a similar coalition that ousted former cricket star Khan.

Like his first term, Sharif will have to face an overlapping trio of crises plaguing the country of more than 240 million.

During his first term, Pakistan came to the brink of economic default, but the situation was saved by a last-minute agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Inflation remains sky-high and Sharif will be the face of unpopular belt-tightening measures sought by international creditors if a new deal is needed in the coming months.
