Speaker of the National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq said that the name was decided after five meetings.
Khursheed Shah, speaking to media before the meeting, said that Monday’s meeting would be the final one.
“I’ll make all out efforts to settle the issue between me and the prime minister,” he said. “If the matter is not settled today then I will send it to the parliamentary committee.”
Justice (retired) Nasir ul Mulk is a candidate who has served as election commissioner and chief justice.
The federal government and opposition agreed on his name from a list of six.
The prime minister had said that the opposition gave three names and we suggested three other names. He added that they couldn’t reach a conclusion and more names were being considered.
According to him, if the two again fail to agree on another name by Monday, they will each give two names to the parliamentary committee that will settle the matter.
