Ex-Pak skipper Latif to contest 'unlawful' appointment of Ashraf as 'new' PCB chief

Karachi, May 10 (ANI): Former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif has said that he will be filing a petition to challenge the manner in which Mohammad Zaka Ashraf was elected as the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman under the new constitution.

Although he admitted that the PCB had introduced a few amendments to its constitution after his first petition, Latif however, said that the process has not turned as democratic as it should be, The Nation reports.

Stating that there are loopholes in the new constitution which he wants to rectify, Latif termed the fresh election of Ashraf as PCB chief as 'unlawful', adding that although he is not against any individual, he just wants a fair system.

According to a PCB release, Ashraf, who was already serving as PCB Chairman since November 2012, was elected by the Board of Governors under the new constitution for a four-year term.

Under the old system, the chief patron used to directly appoint the chairman of the Board like President Asif Zardari, who appointed Ashraf in 2012, the report added. (ANI)
