General Election 2018: ECP meeting today to finalize name of caretaker CM Punjab

Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) is meeting on Thursday to finalize name of caretaker Chief Minister of Punjab.

The ECP will nominate a caretaker Chief Minister for Punjab after the parliamentary committee failed to reach a consensus over the proposed candidates.

PTI had proposed the names of columnist Ayaz Amir and analyst Dr. Hassan Askari for the office of caretaker chief minister, while PML-N nominated Pakistan Navy's former chief Admiral Muhammad Zakaullah and Justice (retd) Sair Ali.

Earlier in a statement issued today, ECP spokesman said Balochistan and Punjab assemblies completed their constitutional term on 31st of the last month.

He said the chief ministers and opposition leaders of the two assemblies had time to decide names of caretaker chief ministers by 3rd of this month, and then parliamentary committees had three days to decide, which will complete today.
