The 42-year-old agriculturist was born and raised in Karachi and comes from a family of politicians. His grandfather, Mir Balk Sher Mazari, was a member of the National Assembly and served as the caretaker prime minister during 1993.
The younger Mazari entered politics with a National Assembly seat on a PPP ticket in 2008. In the years that followed, he was appointed the parliamentary secretary for water and power and the minister for state for communications.
But in 2013, the deputy speaker parted ways with the party and in 2015 joined PTI.
Mazari was quick to gain his party chief’s trust and in 2018 he was nominated as PTI’s candidate for PA deputy speaker. He was later successfully appointed.
So, where did things go wrong? It started with the no-confidence movement against Imran and escalated on March 28 when former Punjab chief minister Usman Buzdar resigned following the beginning of a vicious ‘number game’ in the province.
To save his collapsing government, the former prime minister had chosen PML-Q’s Chaudhry Parvez Elahi over Buzdar, who resigned to make way for him. Ultimately, the no-trust move was successful and Punjab’s crown was up for grabs.
However, things seemed to be in favour of the PML-N after incumbent Chief Minister Hamza Shehbaz managed to gain the support of 25 PTI assembly members.
