New FPCCI president to take charge today

KARACHI: The Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI) officially announced its election results on Friday and the new office-bearers would take charge of their respective positions in an official ceremony to be held on Saturday. Sultan Chawla was elected unopposed as President of the FPCCI.
The four vice presidents elected on the basis of associations are Zakaria Usman, Mansha Churra, Aftab Birlas and Hameed Chadda. Of the four vice presidents who were to be elected from each of the four provinces, only two have been elected unopposed so far, who are Mumtaz Sheikh from Sindh and Mohammad Idrees from Punjab.
Vice Presidents from the provinces of Balochistan and NWFP would be elected when the fake associations’ case pending in Sindh High Court is solved and that may not be before the 5th of February, an FPCCI official said.
