The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz has decided to appoint veteran journalist and political commentator Najam Sethi as Punjab’s caretaker chief minister.

PML-N leader Senator Mushaidullah Khan confirmed that the decision has been made that Mr Sethi will be picked up from the list of four nominees for the slot.

A six member parliamentary committee comprising three members each from the government and opposition side has been discussing four names for the post of caretaker CM for the last couple of days.

Mr Sethi was the nominee from the Pakistan People’s Party.
