LAHORE (92 News) – Former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif on Saturday suggested for consideration for Caretaker Chief Minister’s nomination in Punjab.
The Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) president has nominated Pakistan Navy former chairman Admiral Muhamamd Zakaullah, former DG Intelligence Bureau (IB) Aftab Sultan, Justice (r) Sahir Ali and former IG Punjab Tariq Saleem Dogar for the post.
Shehbaz put forward the names after discussion with former prime minister Nawaz Sharif during a meeting of the PML-N leaders in Model Town, Lahore.
A meeting is also expected between Shehbaz and former leader of opposition in the Punjab Assembly Mehmoodur Rasheed within the next two days to discuss the nominees for caretaker Punjab chief minister.

“If Shehbaz and Rasheed do not reach a consensus, then the matter will be resolved by a parliamentary committee,” sources added. A day earlier, confusion surrounded the list of candidates suggested by PTI for caretaker chief minister of Punjab.
After Rasheed presented the names of Orya Maqbool Jan, Yaqub Izhar, and Hassan Askari, party spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry later took to twitter to announce the candidates proposed as caretaker CM which did not include Orya’s name.
Earlier, PML-N had proposed two names including Justice (R) Sair Ali and former IG Punjab, Tariq Saleem Dogar.
Former Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and former Opposition Leader in Punjab Assembly, Mian Mehmood ur Rahid will meet in Lahore tomorrow again, to discuss and finalize a name.
