LAHORE: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Tuesday named Additional Advocate General Asma Hamid’s appointment as backer general of Punjab pre-polling rigging.

On Sunday evening, Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif allegedly endorsed an outline with respect to the appointment of Ms Hamid as first-ever woman AGP. The appointment came days before the PML-N government finishes its five-year residency on May 31.

In a letter kept in touch with the Chief Election Commissioner and named Punjab caretaker CM, PTI representative Fawad Chaudhry brought up that Asma Hamid’s appointment was made in a pell mell way without following the required technique set down for such an appointment.

Communicating worry over the appointment, he named it pre-survey fixing and asked for the CEC and Punjab caretaker CM to proclaim it unlawful and void.
