Crucial PA session faces delay

According to details, the crucial session of the Punjab Assembly will hold the process of the chief minister’s election between incumbent CM Hamza Shehbaz and Punjab Assembly Speaker Pervaiz Elahi.

More than 180 Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) lawmakers have arrived at the Punjab Assembly, flashing the victory sign. Meanwhile, PML-N members – backing Hamza Shahbaz – also started arriving at the assembly. As the speaker himself is a candidate for the contest, the session will be held under the chairpersonship of Deputy Speaker Dost Mazari. The session was set to start at 4pm but could not begin on time.
