Leading stalwarts from the PPP and other important personalities are anticipated to attend the oath-taking service.New governor was scheduled to take oath on Wednesday but the ceremony was postponed due to the killing of Justice Javed Iqbal’s parents.

Governor was appointed as the Governor of Punjab by Zardari on 11th January. His appointment was questioned in the Court the next day when a person submitted a case against him. It said that he was not qualified for the post under the articles 62 and 63 of the constitution of Pkaistan due to the fact he was removed from the office of Attorney General during 2009 under charges of crime.

The court adjourned the hearing until Jan nineteen. He will be taking the position of Salmaan Taseer, who was killed by his personal security guard a week ago.
