Pervaiz Elahi Takes Oath As Punjab CM

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) leader Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi took oath as the new Punjab Chief Minister in the wee hours of Wednesday.

President Dr Arif Alvi administered the oath of office to Pervaiz Elahi during a ceremony held at the Aiwan-e-Sadr in Islamabad on Wednesday after Punjab governor refused to do so.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Supreme Court (SC) of Pakistan declared Deputy Speaker Punjab Assembly Dost Muhammad Mazari’s ruling in the Punjab Chief Minister election “illegal” and ruled that Pervaiz Elahi will be the new Punjab Chief Minister.
