General Election 2018: Prof. Hassan Askari name finalized for Caretaker CM

General Election 2018: Prof. Hassan Askari name finalized for Caretaker CM

ECP select Professor Hasan Askari name as Punjab caretaker chief minister on Thursday.

ECP Additional Secretary Akhtar Nazir made the announcement at a press conference in Islamabad.

"All respected members took place in the meeting and unanimously decided that Punjab's caretaker CM would be Professor Hasan Askari Rizvi," Nazir said.

Nazir said that a decision regarding the Balochistan caretaker CM would be made today or tomorrow.

The process of selection of caretaker chief ministers of Punjab and Balochistan was referred to the ECP after a parliamentary committee in Lahore failed to reach a consensus, and the government-nominated members in Quetta did not turn up at a meeting of the parliamentary committee.

The PML-N has floated the names of two candidates — retired Admiral Mohammad Zakaullah and retired Justice Sair Ali — and the PTI proposed Dr Hasan Askari and Ayaz Amir as possible names for the post of Punjab caretaker CM.
