Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan has written a letter to Opposition Leader of National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif on the appointment of two members of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), seeking his suggestions in writing.
According to details, PM Imran Khan has suggested the names of Amanullah Baloch, ex-district and sessions judge, Quetta; Munir Kakar, a lawyer; and Mir Naveed Jan Baloch, a businessman and a former caretaker minister in the provincial government, for their nomination as a member of the ECP from Balochistan.
“Written consultation is surely preferred. I again stress your good self to participate in the consultative process by giving your views in writing. In case you do not participate in the consultative process, the people of Pakistan and I shall have no other option but to presume that you are evading the legal process, in which further rights shall be reserved,” reads the letter.
“The entire idea of sending you the letter and the present one is to enter into an effective, meaningful, purposive and consensus-oriented process of consultation, leaving no room of complaint of arbitrariness or unfair play,” the letter states.
Earlier, Sharif wrote a letter to PM Khan for opposing his method of consultation over the appointment of ECP members.
