The chairman of the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) is likely to be appointed today by the Federal cabinet of Pakistan. This decision to appoint the new chairman of the organization was postponed last week to Thursday January 17thduring last week’s meeting. The cabinet meeting is scheduled for today which will be attended by the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan. Moreover, the meeting will look in to the summary of the Cabinet division for the appointment of the new chairman PTA. The three notable and likely candidates include, Retd. Major General Amir Azeem Bajwa (Member Technical), Dr Khawar Siddique Khokhar (Member Compliance) and finally Muhammad Naveed(Member Finance).
All of these candidates will be looking to get their hands on the decorated post, however, things got a wee bit interesting when PTA decided to consider other options as well for the seat of Chairman after deciding that Major General Amir Azeemwould become the chairman of the organization, since historically, the member technical is always elected as the chairman of PTA. This time however, all of the three prominent members are being looked in to after which the cabinet will announce the decision, which will most likely be taken today.
PTA chairman is likely to be appointed by the Federal Cabinet Today!
The previous government appointed Muhammad Naveed as the member of Finance of PTA and was further given the additional post of the chairman at the time but last week the federal cabinet authorized the appointment of Major General Amir Azeem as the member technical who was previously the Director General of Special Communication Organization(SCO). Now if the style of decision making from the past is taken this time around as well, the we all can be sure the Member Technical will be appointed for the decorated post but considering the Federal Cabinet’s decision to shortlist three people for the appointment, we can never be to sure. Well we will not have to wait long before we get the answer to that question, with the decision set to take place today.
