Courts orders elections for PCB chairman
Oct. 21, 2013
A judge in Pakistan has ordered the country's election commission to conduct a fresh vote for the chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board before Nov. 2.
PCB legal adviser Tafazzul Rizvi tells The Associated Press that Islamabad High Court judge Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui also directed the EC on Monday to allow associations in litigation to cast their votes.
Rizvi says that about 30 percent of the associations in the country are in litigation.
Last week, the PCB appointed a five-member Interim Management Committee, superseding the governing board.
The committee elected Najam Sethi as IMC chairman after the government asked the committee members to elect their own head.
