Imran names Buzdar as CM Punjab nominee 

On Friday, prime minister-elect Imran Khan had announced Buzdar's name as a candidate for the post of CM Punjab via a video message. Explaining his decision, the PTI chief had said: "Sardar Usman hails from the most impoverished area of Punjab. These people have no water, no electricity, no hospitals.

Thankful to Imran for nominating me: Buzdar  

While speaking to Geo News earlier in the day Buzdar had said he was thankful to party chief Imran Khan for nominating him.

Buzdar said he had never dreamt that he would ever be given a chance to become CM Punjab.

The PTI nominee had added that he and his team would work in line with the law and that their performance would be unparalleled — much better than that of any CM in Pakistan's history.
