Islamabad: Jun 6, 2014

 

The Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) chairman is likely to retain top-notch position and powers as there would be no post of Managing Director in the Board.

 

According to the Express Tribune, the new constitution has been sent for approval by the Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC) ministry to Prime Minister and PCB Patron Nawaz Sharif.

 

An IPC Official said that under the new constitution the PCB chairman will continue to be the main man and his powers will not be shared with any other official.

 

He further added that the chairman would continue to employ people for major posts and he will decide on the selection committees, captain of the national team and team management.

 

This development in the new constitution brings speculations to a halt that the newly-appointed MD would be the most powerful authority in the Board.

 

The report also suggests that all departmental representatives and elected regional presidents in the Board of Governors (BoG) will elect the chairman and can be removed democratically by a vote of no-confidence by them.
