ISLAMABAD ( Web News )
President Dr. Arif Alvi on Saturday asked Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif to review his advice seeking appointment of new Governor Punjab.
President has stated that Omar Sarfaraz Cheema is still Governor Punjab and there is no rationale behind new appointment. Current situation of the country requires that the incumbent Governor continues to hold office, he added.
The president further added that illegal steps in Punjab have caused severe governance issues in the province and after Election Commission of Pakistan’s May 20 verdict, Omar Sarfaraz Cheema’s point of view is strengthened.
Dr. Arif Alvi asked the premier to review his advice as per constitution of the country.
Earlier on May 10, Federal Government de-notified Omar Sarfaraz Cheema as Governor Punjab.
