Maryam entered politics in 2013 as she was the key leader behind Nawaz Sharif’s campaign which led to him becoming the country’s prime minister. She was appointed as the Chairperson of the Prime Minister’s Youth Programme however she resigned in 2014 after her appointment was challenged in the Lahore High Court. She is the political heir to her father and has been at the forefront of the party’s affairs ever since Nawaz Sharif left the country to seek medical treatment in London, United Kingdom.
