Islamabad: President Asif Ali Zardari has appointed Dr. Shama Khalid as the very first Governor of Gilgit-Baltistan. She is also honored to be first lady Governor in history of Pakistan.
Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani, Chief Minister of Gilgit-Baltistan and ministers besides federal ministers and members of the Parliament will attend the oath taking ceremony which will be aired live from the Presidency.
PPP workers, on the other hand, have protested against nomination of Dr. Shama Khalid as Governor of Gilgit-Baltistan.
The PPP members demanded that a local personality should be made the governor. The Gilgit Baltistan People’s Youth Secretary Ghazi Irfan told SAMAA that the PPP’s local women’s leader Anisa Sadiq should be made the governor instead of Shama Khalid. source
