PTI has proposed names of Hassan Askari, Ayaz Amir and Yaqub Izhar for the slot of caretaker Chief Minister Punjab.

PTI Spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry, in a tweet, has expressed the hope that agreement on any one name is expected by tomorrow evening.

Earlier, PTI Opposition Leader in Punjab Assembly Mian Mehmoodur Rashid on Wednesday withdrew the name of his party’s nominee Nasir Mehmood Khan Khosa for the office of caretaker Punjab chief minister.

“We made a mistake by recommending Khosa’s name in haste,” he said while addressing a news conference here. He said the new name would be announced within 24 hours.

PTI chief Imran Khan also chaired an important meeting of party’s central leadership on Wednesday in Islamabad, according to the PTI central media department.

The meeting withdrew the nomination of Nasir Khosa for caretaker Punjab chief minister slot, citing strong public reaction as the reason.

PTI central leadership also approved the names of Himayatullah and Ejaz Qureshi for the caretaker chief minister of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.

The meeting also condemned the ‘last-minute appointments’ made in the centre and Punjab by the outgoing Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz government.
