ISLAMABAD: Soon after the announcement of care taker PM, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif vacated the Prime Minister House.
Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Leader of the Opposition Raja Riaz on Saturday afternoon after two days of deliberations agreed to nominate Anwaarul Haq Kakar as the caretaker prime minister.
The decision was taken during a consultation meeting held in the PM House.
The consultation process for the appointment of the caretaker prime minister was amicably completed, the PM Office Media Wing said in a press release.
Opposition Leader Raja Riaz told the media the name of Senator Kakar was finalised for the slot of the caretaker prime minister.
Talking to the media, Raja Riaz said that in the meeting with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, the two leaders reached a consensus on the name of the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) senator.
Raja Riaz said the reason for choosing someone for such an important slot from an underdeveloped province was to end their sense of deprivation.
He said Senator Kakar was the opposition’s nominee for the caretaker PM.
The prime minister thanked the leader of opposition for the role in parliament during the last 16 months, and the cooperation extended in the consultation process.
Both the leaders signed the advice for the appointment of the caretaker prime minister and forwarded to the president.
The nominated caretaker PM will take oath of office tomorrow.
