The Governor of Punjab

Post  jukido on Thu Aug 11, 2011 8:41 pm

The Governor of Punjab is the appointed head of state of the provincial government in Punjab, Pakistan. The governor is designated by the Prime Minister and is normally regarded a ceremonial post. However, throughout the history of Pakistan, the powers of the provincial governors were vastly increased, when the provincial assemblies were dissolved and the administrative role came under direct control of the governors, as in the cases of martial laws of 1958-1972 and 1977-1985, and governor rules of 1999-2002. In the case of Punjab, there was direct governor rule in 1949-1951, when the provincial chief minister of that time was removed and assemblies dissolved.

The most recent Governor was Salmaan Taseer, a business tycoon who was the Chairman and CEO of the First Capital and Worldcall Group, and who was assassinated on 4 January 2011[1].
