Elections to appoint the next PCB chairman will take place on September 4, the Pakistan Cricket Board announced after the Election Commissioner, Justice Afzal Haider, confirmed the formation of the Board of Governors (BoGs) and convened a special meeting. Ehsan Mani, appointed to the BoG as the Patron's (Prime Minister Imran Khan) nominee, will file his candidature for chairmanship and hope to be elected as the next chairman of the country's governing body.
Mani had been nominated directly for the chairmanship by newly-elected prime minister Imran Khan after Najam Sethi resigned from the top post. But, the direct appointment was contrary to the PCB constitution framed in 2014. So, Imran later took to Twitter to clarify that Mani's appointment would take place according to the set procedures. Accordingly, Mani was nominated as a member of the BoG from where he can put forward his candidacy.
A BoG, which has a three-year term, comprises 10 members. Two are appointed by the patron and the rest are divided equally between regions and service organisations (departments).
