KARACHI -- Having delivered on governance, economic reform and, crucially, security, Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif now turns his attention to winning a second term.

Having earned no uncertain praise in business circles and the media, some are already predicting another win for Sharif in the 2018 general election. Pakistan has recently seen significant improvements in its infrastructure and energy sectors, helped in part by the downward trend in oil prices.
