ISLAMABAD: The central working committee (CWC) of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz on Monday approved an amendment in party’s constitution, allowing disqualified member parliament to lead the party.
In its meeting headed by the party’s interim president Sardar Yaqub Nasir at Punjab House, the CWC unanimously accepted the amendment.
The PML-N members also endorsed a resolution forwarded by Climate Change Minister Senator Mushahidullah Khan.
The party leaders expressed confidence and reaffirmed their trust on the party leader. They also paid tribute to the former prime minister for his services during his tenure.
Meanwhile, PML-N has also summoned a meeting of its general council on Tuesday to appoint Nawaz as the party’s president after his removal from office.
Former senator and the party’s chief election commissioner, Chaudhry Jafar Iqbal, will apprise the members of schedule for the election of party president.
It is quite unlikely for any other PML-N member to file his nomination for post.
