A number of media houses in Pakistan have reported that Chairman PCB, Ramiz Raja has no plan to resign from his post unless the new government asks him to.
Ramiz Raja Has No Plan To Resign
Chairman PCB normally resigns as soon as a new patron-in-chief takes over. However, reports in media suggest that Ramiz Raja who was appointed by Imran Khan plans not to resign unless he is asked to by the new Prime Minster i.e. Shahbaz Sharif.
It is worth mentioning here that Geo News had earlier reported senior sports journalist Faizan Lakhani as saying, “It’s a norm in PCB, PM, who is patron-in-chief, nominates his candidate for the chairmanship. There is a democratic process to elect PCB chairman through the board of governors but unfortunately, the patron-in-chief pin points his candidate and makes him the chairman.
“I got a chance to ask PML-N’s Miftah Ismail and Ahsan Iqbal about PCB chairman as they are expected to be in government next. So, they indirectly indicated towards a change and said they will make a decision on merit.”
Najam Sethi is expected to be the chairman of PCB again if Raja is asked to leave.
