ISLAMABAD: Opposition Leader in National Assembly (NA) Khurshid Shah said on Thursday that during the meeting between him and Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi it has been agreed to appoint a reputable person as caretaker premier.

Any retired General, bureaucrat, retired judge or politician can be considered for the post, added the opposition leader.

“In the meeting with the PM, we agreed to finalise the name of caretaker premier till May 15,” he said.
