PESHAWAR: Engineer Shaukatullah Khan resigned from the post of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa governor on Tuesday, DawnNews reported.

According to the state-owned channel PTV, Khan sent his resignation to the Aiwan-e-Sadr.

It is expected that opposition leader in the KP Assembly Sardar Mehtab Abbasi will replace Khan to the governor’s post, sources said.

Last year, in February 2013, then-president Asif Ali Zardari, on the advice of then-prime minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, had appointed Khan as the Governor of Khyber Pakthunkhwa province, replacing veteran Barrister Masood Kausar due to health problems.

Prior to that, Khan had been elected as a member of the National Assembly from NA-43 Nawagai.
