Nawaz Sharif, leader of the PML-N party and two-time former prime minister, is tipped to become Pakistan's next leader after the May 11 elections.

In interview to Al Jazeera's Imtiaz Tyab, he says that despite being removed in a military coup led by Pervez Musharraf in 2007, he is not concerned the current leadership will do the same.
