According to PML-N sources, Shahbaz Sharif was touted to be made Punjab chief minister once again. Ishaq Dar and Ahsan Iqbal are likely to become next finance and education ministers respectively.

According to unofficial results, the PML-N has managed to grab 125 NA seats that may exceed to 130 till all results are final in the historic May 11 polls.
