PESHAWAR: President of Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chapter, Asad Qaiser has been nominated for the post of speaker in the provincial assembly by party chief Imran Khan on Saturday night.

The decision was taken in a party meeting held at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital in Lahore, where Khan is currently being treated for injuries he sustained during electioneering.

PTI’s chief minister-elect Pervez Khattak and leaders Shah Farman and Atif Khan were also present on the occasion.

The PTI chairman had earlier nominated Khattak for the chief minister’s position ending an internal power struggle between Khattak and Asad Qaisar, who also was aspiring for the top post.

Khan's party has won the largest number of seats in the province in the recently held general elections.
