Shehbaz Sharif, President of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly, has recommended names for new provincial members of Pakistan’s Election Commission (ECP).
Shehbaz Sharif submitted fresh names for the Punjab and KP vacancies in response to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s letter recommending names for ECP members.
Justice (retd) Tariq Iftikhar Ahmed, Justice (retd) Mushtaq Ahmed, Muhammad Javed Anwar, Khalid Masood Chaudhry, Irfan Qadir, and Irfan Ali were among the candidates he offered for Punjab.
Syed Afsar Shah, Sardar Hussain Shah, and Sohail Altaf have been suggested by the opposition leader for the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
It is worth noting that two ECP posts became vacant on July 26 following the retirement of two members from Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The Prime Minister writes to Shehbaz about the empty ECP positions.
Prime Minister Imran Khan had written a letter to Shahbaz Sharif for the nomination of members to the ECP, according to Federal Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry.
As a result, the prime minister has addressed a letter to the leader of the Opposition in accordance with Articles 213 and 218 of the Constitution, according to Chaudhry, so that these vacancies might be filled.
For the two vacant ECP seats in Punjab and KP, the prime minister had proposed three persons each.
The prime minister has nominated Ahsan Mehboob, a retired BS-22 police officer, Raja Aamir Khan, a Supreme Court of Pakistan counsel, and Syed Pervaiz Abbas, a retired BS-22 officer from the Pakistan Administrative Service, for the province of Punjab.
PM has suggested retired justice Ikramullah Khan, Faridullah Khan, a former BS-22 officer from Pakistan Administrative Service, and Muzammil Khan, a Pakistan Supreme Court attorney, for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Chaudhry had stated that after the Opposition responds, the nomination of ECP members from Punjab and KP will be possible.
