Profile
Maryam Safdar better known by the name Maryam Nawaz Sharif is a Pakistani politician who is the daughter of former Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif and the First Lady of Pakistan Kalsoom Nawaz Sharif.

Born in 1973 in Lahore, Sharif was initially involved in the family�s philanthropic organisations, however in 2013, she entered in politics and was made in charge of Nawaz Sharif election campaign during the 2013 general election. In 2013, 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 seen as the political heir to her father.

Early life and education
Maryam Nawaz Sharif was born in Lahore, Punjab on 28 October 1973 to Nawaz Sharif and Kalsoom Butt.

She received her early education from Convent of Jesus and Mary, Lahore. She then enrolled in King Edward Medical University in the late 1980s, however she left the college without completing her degree. A controversy arose in the matter later on when an opposition leader alleged that admission was illegal.

Reportedly, she completed undergraduate studies from the University of Punjab, from where she received a master's degree. In 2012, it was reported that she is completing her Ph.D. degree on post-9/11 radicalization in Pakistan.

In 2014, her degrees in M.A. (English Literature) and Ph.D. in Political Science were questioned by Lahore High Court. It was unclear whether her Ph.D. degree was earned or honorary.

In 1992, she married Muhammad Safdar Awan.

Political career
Prior to entering in politics, she remained involved in the family�s philanthropic organisation and served as the chairperson of Sharif Trust, Sharif Medical City and Sharif Education Institutes.

In 2012, she begun her political career and was made in charge of Nawaz Sharif election campaign during Pakistani general election, 2013 where she reportedly played a prominent role.

She was described by Newsweek Pakistan in March 2012 issue as �heir apparent� of Nawaz Sharif and the �presumed future leader" of the PML-N.
In November 2013, she was appointed as the chairperson of Prime Minister�s Youth Programme. However her appointment was called into question and cited as an example of rampant nepotism by the opposition parties, especially the PTI. Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf took the matter to Lahore high court in October 2014 where Justice Syed Mansoor Ali Shah ordered the administration to force her to resign. During the hearing, deputy attorney general Amir Rehman presented her academic credentials but withdrew them after failing to answer a query whether the Ph.D. degree was actual or honorary. He claimed that the details presented before the court had been collected from the internet. Justice Shah also expressed astonishment over the combination of her claimed degrees �an M.A. in English Literature) followed by a doctorate in Political Science. In 2014, Sharif resigned from the post of the chairpersonship.

In 2017, she was selected as one of the BBC's 100 Women.

Controversy

In April 2016, Nawaz was named in the Panama Papers as allegedly the beneficial owner of the properties in the United Kingdom owned jointly by her brothers. After which PTI filed petition in the Supreme Court of Pakistan against her for misdeclaration. In 2017, Panama Papers case verdict by Supreme Court of Pakistan cleared Sharif from the allegations made against her by petitioners. However, she is being investigated for forging documents submitted to the Supreme Court in relation to the case.The scandal has been widely referred to as Fontgate. If convicted for such criminal offense she could be disqualified from holding office
