Parliamentary body optimistic to evolve consensus on caretaker PM PDF Print E-mail
ISLAMABAD, March 21 (APP): Parliamentary Committee formed to appoint caretaker Prime Minister has expressed optimism to evolve consensus in its last meeting, would be held on Friday. Though the Committee discussed in detail the names of potential candidates in its second meeting here on Thursday but again failed to generate unanimity that who would be the next premier in caretaker set-up. Sardar Yaqoob Nasir of Pakistan Muslim League (N) chaired the meeting. After the meeting, a Representative of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) in the Committee, Syed Khursheed Shah told mediapersons that the task would be completed under the set criteria of the committee as concerns of opposition would be addressed on Friday.

He said apprehensions of those who were spreading rumors with regard to delay in elections were removed as democratic process was being pursued. Four provincial assemblies have been dissolved while election date has also been announced.
“An attempt to undermine the parliamentary committee would not be beneficial,” Chief of PML (Q) and Member, Ch. Shujaat said.
He said the political decisions should be taken by politicians and it would be an unfortunate if non-political figures take decision regarding appointment of a caretaker PM.
Another Member and Representative of Awami National Party (ANP), Ghulam Ahmed Bilour said there was a progress on the matter while objections regarding Justice ® Nasir Aslam Zahid were also heard.
Sardar Yaqoob Nasir said that PML-N has shown flexibility over the names and it is our mandate to nominate a name for the caretaker chief executive who should ensure free and fair elections.
He expressed resolve that the matter of caretaker prime minister would be solved in two sessions of the committee meeting.
He said that no party is showing rigidity and all are giving arguments in favor of their stance.    
The Parliamentary Committee which met here at the Parliament House with Sardar Yaqoob Nasir in the chair discussed the names of Justice ® Nasir Aslam Zahid and Dr. Ishrat Hussain but failed to evolve consensus.
During the first meeting, the committee discussed the names of Mir Hazar Khan Khoso and Rasool Bux Palijo for the caretaker prime minister besides framing rules of business.
The government has nominated Dr Ishrat Husain and Justice (Retd) Mir Hazar Khan Khoso, while the PML-N has finalized the names of Justice (Retd) Nasir Aslam Zahid and Rasool Bux Palijo for the post of caretaker prime minister.
If the committee fails to appoint a caretaker prime minister by Friday, the matter would be referred to the Election Commission of Pakistan which will then make an appointment within two days.
