In Pakistan these days, all eyes are on the appointment of caretaker prime minister. There is a doubt that it is not opening. Over the last few days, so many names have come up that it seems that the decision makers of the country are unable to come to any conclusion.

However, one thing that is interesting about this whole case is that whatever name came up or was brought up in any way, that name ruled the TV screens for at least twenty four hours. There are many names whose echoes were heard for several days.

Let’s take a look at the names that have grabbed public attention for caretaker prime minister so far.

Ishaq Dar:

In this confusion, the first name that came out from serious circles was that of former Finance Minister Ishaq Dar. When a newspaper published this news from its sources, Ishaq Dar’s name was on everyone’s tongue.

The situation became interesting when the PML-N leadership did not deny Burmla. However, one or two leaders including Khawaja Asif said in suppressed words that this decision will not be valid.

However, he did not say that this name is not under consideration. Political observers believe that this name was issued by the PML-N circles themselves.

Hafeez Sheikh:

The name of Hafeez Sheikh suddenly appeared after the reservations of the People’s Party and others on the name of Ishaq Dar due to the government not expressing the policy openly.

Even Vloggers and YouTubers have brought out details to the extent of when Hafeez Sheikh returned to Pakistan and how he is being relaxed in NAB cases.

Political observers are putting this name in the account of the establishment. This name also remained on TV screens for two days.

Reza Baqir:

The name of former head of State Bank Raza Baqir came up as an alternative to Hafeez Sheikh and several coordinations were added in this regard as well.

However, compared to Hafeez Sheikh, this name could not stick on the screen for long. When analysts and political minds started saying that a politician can be a caretaker too. So the situation went the other way.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi:

Political pundits have been looking for explanations for the names of Ishaq Dar and Hafeez Sheikh that since there is an economic crisis in the country, an economist should be the caretaker prime minister.

When the name of Shahid Khaqan Abbasi suddenly appeared, to some extent he was also linked to the economic picture.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi himself, instead of denying it, said that he would have no objection if he was entrusted with the task. This name also provided analysts with analytical fuel for 24 hours.

Jalil Abbas Jilani:

As the political speculation began to subside, a phrase that was heard frequently was that there would be a ‘surprise’. With this surprise, barely a couple of days have passed that suddenly the name of Jalil Abbas Jilani, who has also been the Foreign Secretary, appeared in all circles.

Names appearing on TV screens To check the accuracy of the news, several journalists also sent messages of congratulations to Jilani Sahib and he also thanked them without pause.

His reply messages of thanks were presented as evidence in Journalist Baradi and when the storm subsided it became clear that the name suggested by the People’s Party was not final.

Sadiq Sanjrani:

On Thursday, when the opposition leader Raja Riaz reached the PM House to consult the caretaker seat with the Prime Minister, there was a silence on the screens that something would come out from within. And then came out.

This time the name of Chairman Senate Sadiq Sanjrani changed the atmosphere. The name was coined at the suggestion of opposition leader Raja Riaz.

When several journalists sent congratulatory messages to Jalil Abbas Jilani, he also thanked them without pause

However, when he left after the meeting, instead of revealing any names, he simplified the story to the extent that six names have come on the table, three of which were suggested by him and three of the Prime Minister, but he did not reveal the names included in the list. Just said that there will be another meeting tomorrow.

Names that fade away:

In this intense analysis and commentary, some such names also emerged who could not get the honor of being on the screen for a long time, but continued to receive congratulations in circulation for some time.

These names include Kamran Tesuri, Fawad Hasan Fawad, Justice (retd) Tasadeq Hussain Jilani and Justice (retd) Khalilur Rehman Ramde.

Serious political observers believe that the main reason for this confusion is that information is not coming out wherever the caretaker set-up decisions are being made, and this confusion will continue until the final name is officially revealed.
