Pak Oppn leader recommends 3 names for CEC post
Pakistan's Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif has recommended three names -- Nasir Mahmood Khosa
Islamabad: Pakistan's Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif has recommended three names -- Nasir Mahmood Khosa, Jalil Abbas Jilani and Akhlaq Ahmad Tarar -- to Prime Minister Imran Khan for the post of Chief Election Commissioner (CEC).
In a letter sent to the Premier on November 25, Sharif noted that the incumbent CEC Justice (retired) Sardar Raza's term will expire on December 6.
He also reminded Khan that two posts for Election Commission of Pakistan's (ECP) members are already vacant, Geo news reported.
The Prime Minister was also told that under Section 3 of the Elections Act, 2017, it is a requirement that an ECP bench must have at least three members, with or without the CEC.
Highlighting the impact of not making the appointment in a timely manner, Sharif said: "The consequence will be that the ECP will become dysfunctional on the said date (December 6), unless either a new CEC or one or more members is appointed."
