Nawaz Sharif is to be sworn in as Pakistan's prime minister today, after his surprise landslide victory in general elections last month.

His appointment will be endorsed by newly-elected members of parliament.

Sharif faces numerous pressing challenges, including reviving a weak economy and bringing an end to militant attacks and US drone strikes.

He becomes prime minister for an unprecedented 3rd time after his election win in May.

While the new prime minister favours talks with the Pakistani Taliban, many expect that once he gets into power, he will accept the army's view that all past negotiations have failed and the only option is to fight the jihadis who attack domestic targets.
