Caretaker CM: Shehbaz Sharif suggests four names including ex-chiefs of IB, Navy
LAHORE - Shehbaz Sharif, the outgoing chief minister of Punjab, has proposed four names for the caretaker CM in response to utterly confused Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's (PTI) nominations, opening doors for negotiations.

Sharif has listed former Naval chief Admiral (retd) Zakaullah, Justice (retd) Sair Ali, ex-director general Intelligence Bureau Aftab Sultan and former IG Punjab Tariq Dogar in fresh nominations.

The fresh names are being put forward by both sides after the PTI took back the name of Nasir Khosa, former principal secretary of Punjab, who had been named after the PML-N government and opposition reached a consensus.

On Friday, Mian Mehmood ur Rasheed, the former Leader of the Opposition in the Punjab Assembly, pitched the name of industrialist Yaqoob Tahir Izhar besides former bureaucrat Orya Maqbool Jan in a meeting with Rana Iqbal, speaker assembly.
