Express July 24, 2011


The governor and chief minister reached a compromise on the appointment of vice chancellors to the University of Education (UoE) and Government College University (GCU) on Saturday.

Dr Faizul Hasan was appointed to the UoE and Dr Muhammad Khaleequr Rehman to GCU Lahore for four-year terms.

The governor and the chief minister had been at odds over who had the final say in the selection of vice chancellors for the two universities in Lahore as well as Bahauddin Zakariya University in Multan.

On Saturday, they settled on the chief minister’s choice for UoE, and the governor’s choice for GCU.

The governor had earlier nominated Dr Jamil Anwar as vice chancellor of the UoE. “I have had another appraisal of the credentials ... and have reached the conclusion that Prof Dr Faizul Hasan is the best choice,” the governor said in the appointment notice issued on Saturday.

The chief minister had recommended Muhammad Akram Kashmiri for the job of GCU vice chancellor.

The appointment of a vice chancellor to BZU is yet to be decided.
