CM: Will leave office after PM accepts resignation


Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar on Tuesday said he would leave office once his resignation is accepted by Prime Minister Imran Khan, vowing to stand by the premier for the greater good of the country.

The chief minister made these remarks in a series of tweets a day after submitting his resignation to PM Imran as the ruling PTI announced PML-Q leader Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi as its candidate for the post of the provincial chief executive. In exchange for the chief ministership, the PML-Q has agreed to put its weight behind the embattled prime minister, who is facing a no-trust move against him by the opposition.

“I have never been desirous of any position as ministries and positions do not last long,” Buzdar said, adding that that the interest of the country was dearer to him than his own self.

He said he would always stand by PM Imran in fulfilling his commitment to the nation for a “Naya Pakistan”.
