“In case Prime Minister Imran Khan and Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif do not agree on the appointment within three days of the dissolution of the NA, they shall forward two nominees each to a committee to be constituted by the speaker, comprising eight members of the outgoing NA, or the Senate, or both, having equal representation from the treasury and the opposition,” the letter stated.
