ISLAMABAD: In an unexpected turn of the events unfolding towards the election of new Prime Minister, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Qamar-uz-Zaman Kaira has submitted his nomination papers for election of new Prime Minister, SAMAA reports Thursday.
It should be mentioned here that earlier today Makhdoom Shahabuddin and Raja Pervaiz Ashraf filed their candidature to the National Assembly Speaker.
However, sources said the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) decided to field third candidate for the top slot of premiership after a local court of Rawalpindi issued unbailable warrant of Makhdoom Shahabuddin in ephedrine case.
It should be mentioned here that Shahabuddin has been alleged to have approved the unauthorized drug quotas that led to the ephedrine scandal involving former premier’s son Ali Musa Gilani. SAMAA
