Lahore High Court lifts stay order on PCB Chairman Election
As of Monday, the stay order on the election of the PCB’s chairman has been lifted by the Lahore High Court.
A chairman election was scheduled for June 27 at the PCB headquarters in Lahore. The election was postponed, however, due to stay orders issued by multiple courts across the country, including the Balochistan High Court.
A stay was imposed on Tuesday by the Lahore High Court after the notification of the Board of Governors (BoG) was suspended.
As well as the federal government, the election commissioner of the cricket board was served with notices by the court.
According to the petition of Malik Zulifqar, Shahzad Farooq Rana made several changes to the list of BoGs, which was finalised by the interim management committee on June 20. There was an illegal act committed by the chief election commissioner, according to the report.
This petition requested a stay order from the court, which was granted.
After the Balochistan High Court’s two-member bench issued a stay order last week, the PCB postponed the elections for its new chairman.
Elections have been halted until July 17 by Chief Justice Naeem Akhtar Afghan and Justice Amir Nawaz.
Following the Eid-ul-Adha holidays and two weeks of summer vacation for the court, arguments will resume on July 17.
