There's not much that PML-N scion Hamza Shahbaz does not own — with his declared net assets totalling over Rs411 million... except maybe a car of his own, if his statement of assets and liabilities is anything to go by.

Documents the PML-N leader has submitted along with his nomination papers show that he owns 11 pieces of non-agricultural land in Lahore worth over Rs136m. He also has shares in 21 companies, including sugar and textile mills, worth nearly Rs133m.

But while the numbers may be significant, they are not even half of those attributed to Hamza's cousin and possible PML-N heir Maryam Nawaz, who has a whopping Rs845m to her name.

But money matters aside, the documents have also reaffirmed something: Hamza is sticking to his claim that Ayesha Ahad Malik is not his wife (although he has two other wives).

As for PML-N president Shahbaz Sharif, he is the owner of 670 kanals of agricultural land — worth only Rs35,000.
