LAHORE – Hafiz Naeemur Rehman was elected as new emir of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) for the period of five years.

Total 46,000 members of the party took part in election through secret balloting, said the JI election commission in a statement. He has defeated Sirajul Haq and Liaquat Baloch to bag the coveted slot.

Rehman, who has been actively involved in Sindh politics, was elected for the period of April 2024 to April 2029.

In February this year, Sirajul Haq resigned as JI emir over his party’s poor performance in the Feb 8 general elections.

Haq, who had been serving as the JI emir since 2014, admitted that he was stepping down over failure in election as the reiligio-politico party failed to grab a single seat in the National Assembly. 

However, the Majlis al-Shura of the party unanimously rejected the resignation of Sirajul Haq.
