LAHORE, Pakistan: Shah Khawar, Advocate of the Supreme Court of Pakistan and the Election Commissioner of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), has assumed the powers of Chairman PCB.
According to the notification dated 23 January 2024 from the Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC) Ministry and by virtue of Article 7(2) of the PCB Constitution the Election Commissioner is vested with the powers of Chairman PCB.
Shah Khawar said “I would like to thank the Patron of the PCB, Mr Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar, for reposing trust in me. My primary responsibility will be to hold the election of Chairman PCB in a free and transparent manner at the earliest.”
Earlier on Friday, Zaka Ashraf tendered his resignation as the Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board’s Interim Management Committee (IMC), two weeks before the expiry of the IMC’s tenure that he had headed.
The resignation came three days after the Ministry of Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC) had disallowed Zaka Ashraf from holding an IMC Meeting wherein he was supposed to form the Board of Governors, which is the first step to hold the elections of PCB Chairman for a three-year term.
