Three candidates emerge frontrunner for slot of KP Chief Minister
ISLAMABAD - Three contenders are apparently in the race for the top slot of the KP province.
PTI had secured two third majority in the 97 member KP Assembly with at least 66 seats.
Former chief minister Pervez Khattak, his minister for elementary and secondary education Atif Khan and sitting provincial assembly Speaker Asad Qaisar have begun manoeuvring to occupy the coveted office.
PTI is making history to make government in the province for the second tenure at a stretch after emerged the single majority party in the province in elections held on July 25. The party claimed to have won 65 seats.
Pervez Khattak claims that he was the most suitable contender to become chief executive of the province for the next five years term.
He, according to the unofficial election results, has won election on two provincial assembly and one National Assembly seats from his home district, Nowshera.
“No one else except myself can run the government,” Mr Khattak said after winning polls in his native district.
