The new prime minister is expected to be Sharif's brother Shahbaz Sharif after a vote for the new prime minister is held in Parliament on Monday.

"This would be the FIRST TIME in Pakistan's HISTORY that a no-confidence vote [!] succeeds in ousting a Prime Minister -- the fulfilment of a constitutional process that was far from guaranteed after Khan's attempts to derail the vote," said Elizabeth Threlkeld, ["]Pakistan expert["] at the U.S.-based The Stimson Center. "That, in itself, is significant, and could give Pakistan something to build on going forward."

euractiv | Political change in Pakistan as Shehbaz ["Shahbaz"] Sharif seeks to become PM, 11 Apr 00:19

The younger brother of three-times prime minister Nawaz Sharif, Shehbaz, 70, has led a bid by the opposition in parliament to topple former cricket star Khan, and he is widely expected to replace him following a vote on Monday. But Khan's party [PTI] also submitted papers nominating the former foreign minister as a candidate, saying their members of parliament would resign en masse should he lose, potentially creating the need for urgent [!] by-elections for their [PTI] seats.
rentier math
The speaker would be obliged to accept those resignations that would necessitate by-elections in probably [?] more than 100 seats [342 MPs total, of which "safe" 174 oppo, 155 PTI, or 45%]. That could PLUNGE the country into another CRISIS as the election commission has previously said it would not be ready to hold elections until October.
