The decision was made by a meeting of the senior party leadership, presided over by PTI chief Imran Khan. The meeting is underway and will mull over nominations for deputy speaker NA and the same in the provinces.
PTI nominates Asad Qaiser as NA speaker, Ch Sarwar as Punjab governor
Khattak will reportedly be made federal interior ministry in the incoming PTI government.
Earlier it was being reported that Khattak was adamant on being made chief minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the office he held in the last PTI tenure too.
The party eventually nominated former sports minister Mehmood Khan for the slot.
Asad Qaiser was announced as the nominee by PTI on Friday and has served speaker of KP assembly previously too.
