The Economist Intelligence Unit expects the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz), or PML (N), to retain control of the National Assembly (the lower house of parliament) until the next legislative election, which is due in 2018.

Conflicts over power-sharing between the military and the civilian government will undermine the authority of the prime minister, Nawaz Sharif. This will constrain his ability to implement reforms in 2016-18.

The parlous domestic security situation will remain a key source of instability. It will undermine GDP growth by posing operational and strategic challenges to infrastructure projects, tarnishing Pakistan's investment appeal.
