The Pakistan Muslim League (N) (Urdu: پاکستان مسلم لیگ ن; acronym: PML-(N), PMN-N, and PMLN) is a center-right, conservative political party in Pakistan, being the largest conservative political force and second largest political party, roughly representing 19.6% of votes in the Parliament (both in Senate and National Assembly), in the latest national parliamentary elections. The Pakistan Muslim League (N) is currently headed by former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
The party's platform generally reflects conservatism in Pakistan's political spectrum, in contrast to the center-left Pakistan Peoples Party — a social democratic political force — and the Awami National Party. Although its power of center lies in the heartland of itself in Punjab province, it also retains considerable support in Sindh, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan, Azad Kashmir, and the Gilgit-Baltistan. Though it is not considered as the original Muslim League, but the party is recognized as the continuing legal successor and personality of the All-India Muslim League, a founding party of the State of Pakistan (See Pakistan Movement and the declaration Now or Never). In addition, it is the only party in the history of Pakistan to receive a two-thirds majority in parliament outright through parliamentary elections, in 1997.
