Chairman NAB to be appointed before October 8: Khursheed

ISLAMABAD: Leader of Opposition in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Ahmed Shah Tuesday expressed the hope that the process of appointing new Chairman National Accountability Bureau (NAB) would be completed before October 8.

Talking to media persons at Parliament House, Khursheed Shah said he will hold meeting with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi in order to finalize the name for the slot of Chairman NAB.

Opposition Leader said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) did not propose names for Chairman NAB despite being contacted for the purpose, adding that “I can not stop this process, if PTI and MQM-P did not give names.”

Khursheed Shah said that PTI and MQM-P had protested in the National Assembly on Monday to hide their incompetence in the Senate.
