Zaka Ashraf declared PCB's first elected chairman

Karachi, May 9 : Under the new PCB constitution, Mohammad Zaka Ashraf has been declared as the first elected PCB chairman for a span of four years, following a Board of Governors (BoG) meeting.

While the International Cricket Council (ICC) directed all its members to have a democratic administration of the boards without government interference, Ashraf had been appointed by the Pakistan president and PCB patron-in-chief Asif Ali Zardari and served as the PCB Chairman since October 2011, The Nation reports.

The report further said that the nomination committee had unanimously recommended Ashraf for the post of PCB chairman after interviewing Ashraf and former chairman of Lahore Stock Exchange Aftab Ahmad Khan.

The PCB has reportedly been facing opposition from various associations and former PCB chiefs on the voting process despite Ashraf's election for the chairman post.

PCB patron-in-chief Asif Ali Zardari had opted for only two names instead of three names that he had been asked to recommend.

While the BoG meeting deciding on electing the PCB chairman to control the helm of affairs marked an important historic event, sources said that Ashraf wanted to get elected before May 11 elections which he managed to do, despite receiving oppositions from the cricketing circles who wanted to take legal action.

According to the report, Naveed Akram Cheema and M Rafiq Bughio were elected according to the PCB constitution to represent the BOG in the nomination committee.
