The government, in yet another reshuffle within the federal cabinet, has assigned new portfolios to existing and new members.
Sheikh Rashid Ahmed has now been given the portfolio of minister for interior, the Awami Muslim League chief was earlier the minister for railways. Azam Khan, who was serving as the minister of counter-narcotics, has now been allotted the portfolio of railways. Brigadier (retd) Ijaz Shah, who was serving as the country’s interior minister, will now head the ministry vacated by Azam.

Earlier today, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Finance and Revenue Dr. Abdul Hafeez Shaikh was sworn in as a federal minister in an oath-taking ceremony held at the Aiwan-e-Sadr.

On December 7, the IHC had ruled that special assistants and advisers to the prime minister were not members of the cabinet and therefore, cannot be part of cabinet proceedings.

It is also reported that the premier is likely to also appoint Adviser to PM on Commerce and Investment Abdul Razzak Dawood and Special Assistant to PM on National Health Services Dr. Faisal Sultan as federal ministers for six months as well.
