LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-N leader Hamza Shehbaz has been appointed as leader of the opposition in the Punjab Assembly.
A written order was issued by Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhary Pervez Elahi in this regard on Thursday.
The PML-N had submitted its request to the PA Secretariat for appointment of Hamza Shehbaz as the opposition leader just after formation of the government.
However, the PA Secretariat did not issue a notification and raised suspicions over the signatures of some MPAs.
The issue was resolved after the office examined the signatures and a notification about Hamza’s appointment was issued on Thursday.—APP
