PTI fails to bring any young person for the KPK
CM slot and named a 62-years-old Khattak
The process of electing Chief Ministers (CM) in three provinces including Khyber Pakhtoon Khawa (KPK), Sindh and Punjab has almost completed and only one province Balochistan is yet to choose its CM. In the three provinces, Punjab has the youngest CM Shahbaz Sharif with age of 61 years while the Sindh CM Qaim Ali Shah is the most oldest with age of 80 years. Whereas, KPK CM Pervaiz Khattak is 62 years old.
Interestingly, all the three CMs belong to three different parties with youngest coming from Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and oldest coming from Pakistan People’s Party Parliamentarians (PPPP). Pakistan Tehreek Insaaf (PTI), which has always talked about empowering youth in the election process, has failed to give a young CM to KPK and come up with name of Pervaiz Khattak. PTI chief Imran Khan has talked a lot about empowering youth in the election process and politics of Pakistan and in his campaign announced proudly of giving maximum tickets to youth has even failed to bring forward any young person for the slot of KPK CM.
Punjab CM Shahbaz Sharif would be holding the office for the third time was born on September 23rd, 1951. He is the younger brother of would-be Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who is only seven days older to KPK CM Pervaiz Khattak and who was born on January 1, 1950.
Sindh CM Qaim Ali Shah’s exact date of birth is not available but according to his daughter Nafisa Shah, Qaim Ali Shah was born in 1933.
