Imran Khan finalise name for Chief Minister KP slot: Sources

ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has finally decided over the name for the top slot of the Chief Minister KP.

Imran Khan has given green signal to Atif Khan for the post of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Chief Minister.

Apart from him, names of Ishtiaq Umrar and Saleem Jhagra were put forward by the party.

In a bid to show number game to the party’s leadership, a meeting was held by former KPK CM Pervez Khattak in Peshawar’s speaker house with MPAs-elect.

At least 42 members of assembly were present however, Shehram Tarkai and Atif Khan did not attend the meeting.

Pervaiz Khattak rejected the news attributed to him that he would quit politics if office of KP CM was not awarded to him.

He adopted the stance that only Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan would announce the name in this regard. However, he added that name for post of KPK CM has not been finalized thus far.

Dispelling statements attributed to him, the former KPK CM maintained that the rumors of factions within PTI were nothing but fake. “Khan saab [Imran Khan] has not made any decision yet. I will accept whatever decision is announced in this regard. News channels are airing propaganda against me,” told Khattak.
