Appointment of CEC: PM Imran Proposes Three Names to Shahbaz

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has once again suggested three names for the position of Chief Election Commissioner of Pakistan.

In a letter dated January 15 and addressed to PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister suggested the names of former federal secretaries Jamil Ahmed, Fazal Abbas Maken and Sikandar Sultan Raja for the post.

The letter also stated that the latest suggestion is an attempt at having “meaningful and result-oriented consultation … to resolve this long-standing issue”.

The government and the opposition have been going back and forth on the issue since early 2019. Both sides have suggested a number of names for the post since then. All of those names have been objected upon by the other side.
