Political Career

Initial Career

  • Chaudhary Nisar started his political career when he became the chairman of District Council Rawalpindi. His journey as a member of the National assembly started when he was elected from NA-95 Rawalpindi in the general elections of 1985. After three years, he was re-elected on the ticket of Islami Jamhoori Ittihad from NA-95. It was a time of his career that he was re-elected whenever elections were held. After working as a Minister of Science and Technology for two years, he was re-elected in 1990 on the same ticket and from the same constituency. 
  • This time he became Minister of petroleum and Provincial coordination. It was the first government of Nawaz Sharif to whom he had got closer to the Martial Law of Zia Ul Haq. This ministry lasted for 3 years. In the general elections of 1993 and 1997, he was elected for the fourth and fifth time. This time he was assigned the ministry of Petroleum and natural resources but soon the Army chief overthrew the Sharif government and imposed martial law.  
  • As Chaudhary Nisar was a part of a democratic system, he was put under house arrest for many weeks. It is also said that being a part of a military family and his associations with the establishment, he was given relaxation after the dismissal of the Sharif Government in 1999. It was the first time that he emerged as the face of PMLN and second powerful leader after Nawaz Sharif 

As a Leader of PMLN

As the new era of Musharraf began when the whole country was dictated by a dictator, Nisar still secured NA-52 seat in 2002 general elections but could not win in NA-53 Rawalpindi. In this tenure, he re-established PMLN as Nawaz Sharif was on exile. He was the only senior leader of the party. 

Genuine stance against the government

In 2008, Nisar was re-elected both from NA-52 and NA-53 Rawalpindi for 7th time. He only retained NA-53. As PMLN made alliances with PPP, Nisar was made the minister of food, agriculture, livestock, and Communication. This ministry did not last long due to his party decided to leave the government alliance. Soon he was appointed as leader of the opposition.
In the same tenure, he became the first chairperson of the apex committee that was intended to audit the government. Soon he resigned saying it was not possible under PPP’s government. His stance against the government made him popular in the party.

After 2013 Elections

  • Nisar was appointed as a part of the Central Parliamentary Board to award tickets to candidates for the upcoming elections of 2013. As expected, he was re-elected for the 8th times and became minister of interior affairs and Narcotics control. This time, his relations were not good with Nawaz Sharif. It was mainly due to the involvement of Maryam Nawaz who he never accepted as his leader. He was also accused of making a lobby before 2013 to become the chief minister of Punjab. Upon his request to Nawaz sharif for the ticket of the provincial cabinet, Nawaz Sharif did not trust him and refrained him from the ticket.
  • His importance as a national leader deteriorated as the government did not give him much importance even though he was the senior leader and federal minister. After the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was made the prime minister. He refused to work in his cabinet as he was junior to him.  He resigned from his ministry but retained his seat in the national assembly.

Offer from Imran Khan

In 2018, it was said that Imran khan offered him to join his party, PTI before elections but he refused. He was one of the class fellows of Imran khan in Atchison College Lahore. He won a provincial seat from pp-10 in 2018 but did not take the oath and went abroad. In his political career, he was accused of giving safe passage to Musharraf to go abroad despite the high treason case against him
