Mir Balakh Sher Mazari passed away on Friday at the age of 94. He had been under treatment at a private health in Lahore for the past few months.
Mazari served as the Caretaker Prime Minister of Pakistan after the Nawaz Sharif government was overthrown by the President Ghulam Ishaq Khan.
His tenure as the Caretaker Prime Minister ended abruptly on May 26, 1993 when the Supreme Court revoked the Presidential Order and reinstated Nawaz Sharif as the Prime Minister.
