ISLAMABAD – The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Friday moved the Supreme Court against the appointment of Mohsin Naqvi as Punjab caretaker chief minister.

On Jan 22, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) appointed Mohsin Naqvi as the caretaker Punjab Chief Minister after the parliamentary committee failed to reach a consensus.

The petition was filed by PTI Secretary General Asad Umar in the apex court. The petitioner pleaded the court to declare Naqvi’s appointment “null and void” and stop him from working as caretaker Punjab chief minister.

The petitioner also challenged the appointment of ECP members Babar Bharwana and Ikramullah in top court.

The PTI-PML-Q alliance had suggested Naveed Akram Cheema and Ahmed Nawaz Sukhera’s names for the caretaker CM’s slot, whereas, the opposition tabled the names of Mohsin Naqvi and Ahad Cheema.

The matter of the appointment of the caretaker Punjab CM reached the election commission after the parliamentary committee failed to reach a consensus.
