Rafique Rajwana resigned from his post as governor of Punjab on Wednesday.
Speaking to reporters, Rajwana said he would return to his profession of being a lawyer after tendering his resignation.
Rajwana added that a new government had been formed and it should appoint the new governor of the province. He stressed that his decision was made after consultation with the party [PML-N] leadership.
Rajwana was appointed as the 36th governor of Punjab in 2015, replacing Chaudhry Sarwar. It is expected that Sarwar who is the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s nominee would be appointed governor of the province.
Last month, Muhammad Zubair who was also affiliated with the PML-N stepped down from the post of Sindh governor.
