Debate Ignites Over Nomination of Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman

A recent statement by Ehsan Mazari, the Minister for Interprovincial Coordination, has sparked a new debate regarding the nomination of the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

Mazari, a lawmaker from the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) in the current PDM-led government, publicly expressed his desire to appoint Zaka Ashraf as PCB chairman. Zaka has previously held the position of PCB chairman.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, it is understood, has thrown his support behind Najam Sethi to continue in the role.

“When we formed this government, we had an understanding that the party heading the relevant ministries would appoint their own people in departments under those ministries,” Ehsan Mazari recently stated.

However, it may not be a straightforward task for the PPP to have their preferred candidate “appointed” as chairman of the PCB.

The PCB Constitution clearly outlines the process for electing the chairman.

Paragraph 6 of the PCB Constitution states: “There shall be a Chairman of the Board elected by the Board of Governors in accordance with paragraph 7 for a period of three years. The Chairman shall be eligible for re-election for one further term of three years, provided that the total tenure of an individual as Chairman shall not exceed a period of six years.”

Furthermore, paragraph 7 of the PCB Constitution highlights the election process for the PCB chairman. It states that “a special meeting of the Board of Governors shall be convened to elect the Chairman from amongst the members of the Board of Governors, by a majority of the total voting membership of the Board of Governors.”

The PCB Board of Governors comprises four members from regional associations, four from service industries, and two members nominated by the Patron in Chief of PCB, which is the prime minister.

The representative of the Ministry of Interprovincial Coordination (IPC) in the PCB Board of Governors is an “ex-officio member” with no voting rights.

Therefore, the PCB Constitution clearly states how the chairman of the PCB is to be elected and who can nominate individuals to the Board of Governors for consideration as chairman.

If the PPP is determined to have their preferred candidate, Ashraf in this case, they will have to convince PM Shahbaz to nominate him as the Patron’s representative in the PCB. There is no other way for them to achieve their goal.

According to the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) memorandum of association, each member, including Pakistan, must manage its affairs autonomously and ensure there is no government or other public interference in the governance, regulation, and administration of cricket in the country, including operational matters, team selection and management, and the appointment of coaches or support personnel.

Any violation of this obligation can lead to the suspension of the member from the ICC.

It is crucial for political forces to understand that sports bodies are autonomous entities everywhere, and direct government interference in their day-to-day affairs or governance can constitute a serious breach.

Whether it is cricket, football, or hockey, politicians must keep their influence away from sports to ensure the integrity and independence of these organizations.
