PTI Wants PML-N to Join Consultation Process

PTI urge PML-N to join consultation for Punjab caretaker CM selection.

According to PTI sources, the names of Dr. Salman Shah, Pervaiz Hassan, and Shoaib Suddle were discussed during a consultative meeting here on Sunday.

The PML-N, on the other hand, is considering Justice (retd) Khalilur Rehman Ramday, former bureaucrat Nasir Mahmood Khosa, former Chief Justice of Pakistan Jawwad S Khawaja, and former Chief Secretary Azam Suleman for the position.

Furthermore, there are reports that the PML-N will not participate in the consultation process and will instead allow the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to choose the caretaker CM.

PTI Chairman

During the meeting, PTI Chairman Imran Khan directed the formation of divisional parliamentary boards within two days.

These boards will compile a list of all candidates who have been shortlisted and submit it to the central parliamentary board.

The meeting also decided to blacklist party members who left the party during a difficult time.

“When it comes to selecting candidates, Imran believes that women and minorities should be given special consideration. “

Their contributions to the party and community will be considered, he says.

PTI Senior Vice President Fawad Chaudhry tweeted that, according to Article 224-A of the Constitution, the chief minister and the leader of the opposition must reach an agreement on the name of the interim chief minister.

If the two leaders are unable to reach an agreement, the two names proposed by each side will be sent to a parliamentary committee.

If the parliamentary committee cannot agree on a name, the names will be forwarded to the ECP, which will appoint one of them as chief minister.

“The commission has no authority to name anyone who is not on the list,” the PTI chief clarified.

Meanwhile, in a press conference, Fawad invited the opposition to a consultation on the interim government. He stated that his party would put forward two candidates for caretaker chief minister.

Imran refuses to meet with his estranged leaders

PTI Chairman Imran Khan refused to meet with any estranged leader of his party on Sunday, directing them to respond to a show-cause notice served on them for failing to follow party instructions on Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi’s vote of confidence.

Fawad revealed that disgruntled party members were attempting to approach the party chairman, but this was unnecessary.

They should respond to the show-cause notices by explaining their position to Asad Umar, the party’s Secretary General.

Faisal Cheema, Momina Waheed, and Khurram Laghari were among those served with show-cause notices for voting against Chief Minister Elahi. On Sunday, disgruntled PTI members attempted to approach the party’s chairman to explain their position.

PTI workers are resentful of defected members, and protests are taking place in their constituencies against them for abandoning the party at a critical juncture.
