He was elected by the lawmakers of Pakistan national Assembly bagging 221 votes to become the successor to ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

58 year old Abbasi, an electrical engineer with a master’s degree was the minister of petroleum and natural resources in Nawaz Sharif’s third term, which ended on July 28, 2017 after the Supreme Court of Pakistan disqualified him as Pakistan’s prime minister.
