Makhdoom Shahabuddin (Urdu, Saraiki: مخدوم شہاب الدین[pronunciation?]; born 7 April 1947) is a Pakistani politician and a member of the National Assembly of Pakistan (February 2008–present) who has held federal ministerial portfolios for finance, health and textiles.
On 19 June 2012, in the aftermath of Yousaf Raza Gilani's conviction and disqualification by the Pakistan Supreme Court on contempt of court charges, Shahabuddin was appointed by the PPP as its candidate for the office of Prime Minister of Pakistan but the nomination was cancelled after a warrant for his arrest was issued by the ANF under suspicious circumstances upon the very day he was nominated.
On the day of his nomination as PM the Anti-Narcotics Force issued a non-bailable warrant for his arrest. The Supreme Court of Pakistan in its decision to grant him bail observed that it was not merely a coincidence that the warrants for his arrest were issued upon the very day that he was nominated by the PPP.
