Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) on Monday night proposed the name of its leader Baligh-ur-Rehman as Punjab Governor.

According to the 24News HD TV channel, the federal cabinet has approved the summary of her name as the next governor through circulation.

Baligh-ur-Rehman belongs to district Bahawalpur of the Southern Punjab region and has served as the state minister for education, interior and narcotics control in the Nawaz Sharif’s last regime.

He also served as federal minister for education and professional training in the cabinet of former premier Shahid Khaqan Abbasi. 

Earlier today, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) formed a larger bench on a petition against the removal of Omar Sarfraz Cheema from the post of Punjab Governor.

The bench will be headed by IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah. Justice Amir Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani are also part of the bench.

It is to be noted here that the court had dismissed the objections of the Registrar’s Office at the request of Omar Sarfraz Cheema. The court has also directed to set the case before a larger bench tomorrow.

It has been pleaded in the petition to reinstate Omar Sarfraz Cheema as Punjab Governor by declaring the notification of dismissal illegal.
