According to Mr Alam, the shortlist candidates include: Sargodha District Coordination Officer Saqib Manan, the MD of Multan WMC Ahmad Shehryar and Planning and Development Department Director General (monitoring and evaluation) Dr Sajjad Mubeen.

“The candidates we’ve shortlisted are the best ones,” Mr Alam said, adding the final selection by the chief minister was expected in a week.He said the LWMC was registered with the Security and Exchange Commission of Pakistan. The LWMC board of directors independently shortlists candidates and sends these to the CDGL which is bound under the law to get it approved from the chief minister, says Mr Alam.
