ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has nominated party leader Asad Qaiser as speaker of the National Assembly and Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar as governor of Punjab.
PTI vice president Shah Mahmood Qureshi briefed reporters on Friday about the party’s nominations for the posts of NA speaker and Punjab governor.
“We have clear majority in Punjab and we are in a position to form government in the province,” Qureshi said.
Qaiser, who has previously served as speaker of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa assembly, brings a wealth of experience with him and enjoys an admirable relationship with all political parties, Qureshi told media.
Asad Qaiser won PK-44 Swabi 2 constituency on the PTI’s ticket with 31,658 votes, defeating ANP’s Gul Zamin Shah during the July 25 general election.
Chaudhry Sarwar, who has served as Punjab governor in the past, was recently quoted as saying that he was not interested in the post.
