ISLAMABAD - The PPP-led coalition government is on the verge of replacing the incumbent governors of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan and efforts are on to find suitable replacements. Well-placed sources told The Nation on Wednesday that the ruling coalition has given go-ahead to President Asif Ali Zardari to replace the incumbent Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor Owais Ghani and Balochsitan Governor Nawab Zulfikar Magsi. The sources said that efforts are afoot to find suitable replacements, adding that the President has already completed consultations to appoint a new governor in Gilgit Baltistan. It is learnt that the government was looking for preferably retired senior army officers for the appointment as new governors in KP, Balochistan and Gilgit Baltistan. However, official sources in the Presidency said that no gubernatorial appointments for now. The incumbent governors of KP and Balochistan are well-experienced persons and have so far been successful in delivering the good. Owais Ghani is serving the province for the past three years and before that he had served as governor in Balochistan for more than four years. Contrary to the governors of these two provinces, the governor Gilgit Baltistan would fill the slot that had fallen vacant in the event of death of Dr. Shamshad, the first GB governor.
