Former prime minister Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain has said he won’t support the PTI chief Imran Khan-backed candidate for the CM slot, 24NewsHD TV reported Friday.

A session of the Punjab Assembly for the election of Leader of the House is underway. Hamza Shehbaz and Parvez Elahi are in the run. Hamza is backed by a coalition government including PML-N, PPP, and JUI, while Parvez is the nominee of the PTI and PML-Q alliance.

The seasoned politician, Ch Shujaat, refused to back the PTI chief nominee for the slot of leader of the house. On the eve of the CM election, Pakistan Muslim League-Q (PML-Q) leaders Ch Parvez Elahi and his son Moonis Elahi met former prime minister Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain after the latter’s meeting with Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari.
