ISLAMABAD: Renowned architect Yasmin Lari has been elected as chairperson and retired justice Nasira Iqbal as vice chairperson of the Transparency International Pakistan.

The election was held following the passing away of TI-Pakistan chairman Sohail Muzaffar last week and retired Justice Ghous Muhammad in December last year.

The board of trustees of TI Pakistan expressed its deep grief, prayed for the departed souls and appreciated their contributions to the organisation.

A press release of TI-Pakistan said on Monday that the trustees have also appointed Daniyal Muzaffar as adviser to the TI Pakistan chairperson and authorised him to represent the organisation in the courts of Pakistan.
