Mohsin Naqvi emerged as the next potential chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) since Zaka Ashraf’s resignation. However, he has to go through the electoral process of the PCB to assume charge of the chairmanship.
Yesterday, the Election Commissioner of PCB Shah Khawar called for a special meeting of the Board of Governors (BoG) on February 6, 2024. This development, confirmed by the PCB on Monday, marks a significant step in the governance of Pakistan’s cricketing affairs.
The upcoming meeting sets the stage for potential leadership changes, with Mohsin Naqvi being the favourite to be elected as the chairman.
When will the PCB Chairman take charge?
If the scheduled election proceeds as planned on February 8, Naqvi, upon retiring from his caretaker Chief Minister role in Punjab, could assume the helm of the PCB within a week of the election results being declared.
According to the PCB Constitution of 2014, Election Commissioner Shah Khawar, who also serves as the Acting Chairman of the PCB, has invoked the necessary provisions to convene the meeting.
Emphasizing the importance of attendance, all 11 board members, including prominent figures like Mustafa Ramde, Syed Mohsin Raza Naqvi, and Sajjad Ali Khokhar, have been mandated to participate.
Notably, Shah Khawar assumed charge as the Acting Chairman of the PCB after the resignation of Zaka Ashraf from the PCB Management Committee.
His appointment came in light of the Clause 2 of Article 7 of the PCB Constitution which dictates that in the absence of a Chairman, all powers are delegated to the Chief Election Commissioner.
