Nasir Saeed Khosa nominated to become Punjab caretaker CM

Former bureaucrat Nasir Saeed Khosa will be the caretaker chief minister of Punjab at the end of the tenure of the provincial government.
The name was agreed in a meeting between Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif and opposition leader Mehmood-ur-Rashid in Lahore on Monday. The two leaders later addressed a news conference to announce the decision.
Khosa has previously served as chief secretary in Punjab as well as Balochistan.
Former chief justice Nasirul Mulk was announced as the caretaker prime minister during a joint press conference held by Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Opposition Leader Khursheed Shah. It took the government and the opposition six meetings to decide on a name for the coveted position.
Justice Mulk, along with two other fellow judges, accepted the task of probing rigging claims in the last general elections. All the major parties praised his conduct during the proceedings of the inquiry commission. After spending 86 days, Mulk rejected the rigging allegations.
