  • Finalised names are Ahmad Nawaz Sukhera, Naseer Ahmed Khan and Nasir Mahmood Khosa.
  • “We are sending these names to the [Punjab] governor,” says Elahi.
  • PML-Q leader says discussion on suggested names continues.

After achieving success in the Punjab Assembly by acquiring a vote of confidence and dissolving the house as planned, Chief Minister Parvez Elahi on Sunday said three names for a caretaker CM have been agreed upon after the consultation with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan.

While talking to the media soon after the huddle with the PTI chief, Elahi revealed the three names i.e. Ahmad Nawaz Sukhera, Naseer Ahmed Khan and Nasir Mahmood Khosa. It is likely that one of the three names would be finalised, he added.

The provincial chief executive further said on his official Twitter handle, “We are sending these names to the [Punjab] governor and if the opposition thinks broadly, the agreement upon the suggested names seems likely.”

When CM Elahi, earlier this week, issued a notification for the dissolution of the Punjab Assembly, the house dissolved after 48 hours as the governor didn’t sign the summer sent by the former. 

Elahi will remain to serve as the Punjab CM until the name for the caretaker CM is finalised. 

He went on to say that on Monday (today) in a consultative meeting, further discussion would be held on the suggested names. 

While focusing on media reports of a possible merger of two allies parties, Elahi said: “Imran Khan has asked [Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid] to merge in the PTI.” 

He added that Moonis Elahi also “thinks that we should merge” in the former ruling party.

Amid escalating tensions, Faisal Vawda forecasts the political demise of the PTI.

Political unrest is likely to approach, as Faisal Vawda noted that PTI will confront formidable obstacles.

Pakistan cannot support any anarchist party. According to Vawda, PTI must change into PTI-P in the same way as MQM becomes MQM-P.

In his critique of the PTI’s present political approach, he implied that the organization’s latest moves and catchphrases are the result of trust established by legal rulings. According to Vawda, PTI is now in a precarious position because these activities have put them over the constitutional line.

“PTI has been shouting anti-institutional slogans ten times ahead of the court order; they should be prepared for the bulldozer now,” Vawda remarked.

Furthermore, according to Vawda, it is improbable that PTI’s founder will be released from prison. Instead, PTI’s future will be determined by government policies and internal calculations.

He said that the intelligence to overthrow the government is within the Pakistan Democratic Movement II (PDM-2).

Furthermore, the senator charged that the government was misrepresenting PTI and the institutions and deliberately causing uncertainty.

He predicted that the political atmosphere would intensify and that the administration might not abide by the rulings of the Supreme Court, contributing to the situation’s complexity.
