KARACHI Sirajul Islam Bukhari will be formally elected unopposed as new president of the Karachi City Cricket Association on Saturday in the quadrennial elections of the regional body which will be held here under the supervision of the PCB at the National Stadium. Earlier, a single bench of Sindh High Court restrained the incumbent president Dr Muhmmad Ali Shah from contesting the election dismissing his constitutional petition on the matter. Siraj Bukhari is the only candidate for the office after he filed his nomination for the post before the PCB election commissioner Abdul Sami Khan here on Friday afternoon. Mehdi Hasan will also take over as treasurer of the cricket body as he is the only candidate for the office. However, there will be voting for the post of the secretary as two candidates Prof Ejaz Farooqi and Riaz Shaikh have filed nomination papers for the post. An electoral college of 21 who have come through the elections of seven zones of the KCCA completed earlier this week will cast their votes. Sirajul Islam Bukhari, who had been secretary of the KCCA for over last three decades, will replace the outgoing president Dr Muhammad Ali Shah who has been restrained from contesting the current elections by a single bench of Justice Mushir Alam of Sindh High Court. The court on Friday morning dismissed a constitutional petition filed by Dr Shah in which he had prayed before the honourable court to declare the petitioner as a qualified and eligible person to contest the KCCA 2010 elections. After hearing the points of view of the two sides, the court dismissed the petition on merit declaring the election rule as stated in the PCB constitution are valid and declaring that any election PCB undertakes should be in conformity of these rules. It may be mentioned that under PCB constitution nobody, who hold a government office or is a member of legislature, can contest the elections of any association. After the decision of the court, the KCCA held an emergency meeting to finalise the candidates for three posts.
