At a meeting in Lahore on Sunday, the former prime minister informed Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif that he would be the future President of the Party and the decision is expected to be endorsed by the Central Working Committee.
The meeting has been summoned after the Supreme Court disqualified former prime minister Nawaz Sharif as head of the PML-N.
Shahbaz is now serving as the chief minister in Punjab province.
The elder Sharif may also attend the CWC meeting where the interim party president will be elected.
Nawaz also noted he was stripped of the PML-N presidency even though only the party's workers have the right to elect whomever they see fit to lead the party.
According to the party's rules, the PML-N's CWC is supposed to elect an acting party head within a week of its chief's removal.
Mr Khan said that it was possible that CM Sharif would continue as the party's president if the general council elected him to the post next month. Shahbaz, 66, chief minister of the vast province of Punjab, has built a reputation as a competent administrator who gets things done, especially infrastructure mega projects that are the cornerstone of the party's electoral appeal. Then the party's general council is required to elect a president within 45 days.
He had finalised his younger brother's nomination for the slot of party president after consulting his wife Kulsoom, daughter Maryam, defunct finance minister Ishaq Dar, former information minister Senator Pervaiz Rashid and a few others. "Maryam's name was not considered for the slot as she is too young to handle the party at this stage", a PML-N leader said.
Sharif resigned in July after the country's top court ousted him from office for concealing financial assets.
Last week, the supreme court gave the decision while hearing petitions against the Elections Act 2017 passed by the parliament, which paved the way for Nawaz to resume his position as party chief following his disqualification from the public office in a corruption case previous year.
Last week, the Supreme Court had ruled that an individual disqualified under Articles 62 and 63 of the Constitution can not serve as head of a political party.
