    Caretaker PM is not the main player for these elections.
    It will mostly depend on who gets the caretaker CM position of Punjab just like Najam Sethi did all the groundwork for PMLN last time.

    Caretaker CM Punjab is Nasir Saeed Khosa. He was Political/Chief Secretary to SS and PM NS once upon a time however he was also PTIs choice. Known to be upright apparently. So seems both parties happy.

    What do you know about Nasir ul Mulk to arrive at the conclusion that he will help SS become PM?

    He is one of the most upright Judges you will ever see.

    @Passionate Pakistani he is also Edwardian.

    I think him at the helm in upcoming days will reflect how he'll perform his duties. If institutes like NAB and Ehtesab Adalat will continue to work independently like today, then you can have good hopes.

    PTI does about-turn on nomination of Nasir Khosa as Punjab caretaker CM

    The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) on Wednesday withdrew the nomination of Nasir Mahmood Khosa as caretaker chief minister of Punjab — merely two days after their own leader, Mahmoodur Rasheed, had finally reached an agreement with Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to appoint him to the post.

    Rasheed, the opposition leader in the Punjab Assembly, today said his party's core committee had decided that Khosa's name would be withdrawn.

    He added that the decision was taken after a "general reaction" to the proposal to appoint Khosa. He said that Khosa is known to be associated with the PML-N and could not be a suitable candidate for the PTI.

    He said the Punjab chief minister would be given a new name for caretaker CM within a few hours.

    Read: The caretaker government: Why do we have one and what purpose does it fulfil?

    Later, the PTI's Information Secretary Fawad Chaudhry said that Khosa's name was given by the party considering his qualifications and his track record. However, he said that there was an immediate reaction on social media, conventional media and within the party itself following the announcement.

    Chaudhry said that the party was withdrawing the name "since elections are a very sensitive issue and conducting elections in Pakistan is a very difficult job so it won't be appropriate for a controversy to be created and [allowed to] grow".

    Interestingly, the name of Nasir Mahmood Khosa, a former federal finance secretary who has also served as the chief secretary of Punjab and Balochistan, had been proposed by the PTI itself and finalised after much haggling by Sharif and Rasheed in a meeting at the PML-N’s Model Town office on Monday.

    This is the second withdrawal of an already nominated caretaker chief minister in recent days. The PTI was earlier forced to withdraw the name of Manzoor Afridi for caretaker CM of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa after severe backlash from other parties in the province, who had pointed to his deep ties to a PTI lawmaker and other party sympathisers.

    PTI withdraws Nasir Khosa’s name for caretaker CM over 'public backlash'

    ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has withdrawn the name of Nasir Saeed Khosa for the post of caretaker Chief Minister in the interim setup over "public backlash."

    “We have withdrawn the name of Nasir Saeed Khosa over public backlash and criticism from a section of media,” PTI spokesman Fawad Chaudhry told Geo Tv.

    “There has been a lot of criticism on social media about the candidature of Nasir Saeed Khosa. We are a political party which cannot ignore the public perception,” he said.

    He, however, said that Khosa was a man of integrity and good reputation.

    Opposition leader in the Punjab Assembly Mahmood ur Rashid also confirmed PTI’s withdrawal of Khosa’s name.

    “We will propose a new name in a few hours and consult with Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif,” he said, adding that a perception was building that Nasir Saeed Khosa was loyal to Nawaz Sharif.

    Nawaz Sharif himself said that Nasir Khosa was his Principal Secretary, he added.

    Yesterday, Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif announced the name of Khosa after consultation with the opposition leader.

    “Glad to announce that Leader of the opposition Punjab and I have agreed on the name of Nasir Saeed Khosa as caretaker Chief Minister Punjab for interim setup. Another step towards strengthening democratic process,” Chief Minister Sharif tweeted.

    absolutely pathetic from Imran and the pti, how do you nominate someone this important in haste (those were the first reports I saw for the reason his name was withdrawn), and not have someone competent in the whole party to be able to do a simple history check on him.

    horrifically, as disappointing and amateur as this is, they still represent the best. voice for government by a billion miles which is a statement of just hoe bad the others are.

    Really poor show from PTI and quite embarrassing too. Proposing someone without proper due diligence speaks of how unprepared they are for this elections.

    Like as I said in post no. 9, upcoming days will reflect how he'll perform his duties. Unfortunitely for 'QUIET' PML-N and Noora's support wouldn't like it - too bad for them and their crook leader.


    Nawaz, family on ECL: Interior ministry sends matter to cabinet committee

    ISLAMABAD: The Ministry of Interior has sent the matter of putting Nawaz Sharif and his family on the Exit Control List to the cabinet committee, sources said on Wednesday.

    Sources said that the committee comprises an interim interior minister and interim finance minister.

    Federal Interior Minister Azam Khan has confirmed that he sent the names to the committee and it will mull over them .

    While speaking to Geo News, Azam Khan said that for summoning a session he is checking out the availability of the ministers.

    If the minister are available then the session will be summoned immediately otherwise it will be after Eid, said the federal interior minister.

    On Monday, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had requested the Ministry of Interior to place former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, daughter Maryam Nawaz, and son-in-law Capt (retd) Safdar's names on the ECL.

    This was NAB's second letter on the matter. It also requested the interior ministry to place Hasan and Hussain Nawaz on the ECL.

    The NAB in a letter on Feb 14 had put forward the same request.

    The anti-graft body in its latest letter maintained that: "The matter is agitated again in view of the fact that reference against the subject accused persons are at the final stage of the trial. There is apprehension that they may leave the country to avoid legal outcomes of the judgment which are expected to be announced shortly."
