PTI rejects Mohsin Naqvi’s appointment as caretaker Punjab CM

PTI rejects Mohsin Naqvi’s appointment as caretaker Punjab CM!

Syed Mohsin Raza Naqvi took oath as the interim chief minister in Lahore late Sunday night.

Punjab Governor Balighur Rehman administered the oath to Mohsin Naqvi at a ceremony held at the Governor House.

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) appointed Mohsin Naqvi as the caretaker CM for Punjab as Punjab Assembly parliamentary committee could not agree on the appointment during a crucial meeting.

Reacting to Naqvi’s appointment, PTI Chairman Imran Khan said that the PML-N had a “history of selecting their own umpires but it’s incredible how the ECP has selected a sworn enemy of PTI as the caretaker chief minister, a post meant for a non-partisan-person”.

Imran stated that the election commission had “helped reduce Pakistan into a banana republic, making our democracy a joke”. He further said he would hold a press conference tomorrow (Monday) to “expose this entire farce”.

PTI Secretary General Asad Umar in a tweet said that appointing Naqvi as the caretaker chief minister was akin to making a mockery of the Constitution.

He added that the PTI would challenge the decision and protest against it.

PTI Senior Vice President Fawad Chaudhry criticised EPC and said that the commission “never failed to disappoint”.

“We reject the decision to appoint a controversial person such as Mohsin Naqvi as the chief minister,” he said, adding that there was no other option apart from protesting in the streets.

He called on party workers to prepare, saying that a large campaign would be launched under the leadership of party chief Imran Khan.

Senior PTI leader and former education minister, Shafqat Mahmood also criticised the decision.

“What a mockery ECP appointing Mohsin Naqvi as caretaker CM; The one man considered most unsuitable for this position. This amounts to virtually handing over power to N and PPP to conduct elections in Punjab. So much for free and fair elections,” he said.
