Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s Cabinet to Swear Oath Today

ISLAMABAD: In a significant political development, the eagerly anticipated federal cabinet is poised to take the oath today at 3 pm, following an extensive period of consultation and deliberation on its composition.

According to reliable sources, the oath-taking ceremony is scheduled to unfold at the President’s House, where President Asif Ali Zardari is expected to officiate the proceedings. Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, in a strategic move, has initially opted for a more compact cabinet, reserving the possibility of additional inductions in a subsequent phase.

A glimpse into the expected ministerial assignments reveals that former finance minister Ishaq Dar is positioned to assume the pivotal role of the foreign minister, underscoring a continuity in his diplomatic responsibilities. Furthermore, Tariq Fatemi is anticipated to be appointed as a special assistant to the prime minister on foreign affairs, bringing his seasoned expertise to the diplomatic forefront.

The Finance Ministry is set to be entrusted to the capable oversight of Aurangzeb Khan, while the seasoned political figure Mohsin Naqvi is earmarked for the crucial Interior Ministry.

As the federal cabinet takes shape, Azam Tarar is anticipated to bring his extensive legal acumen to the forefront as the head of the Ministry of Law. Attaullah Tarar is expected to assume the mantle of the information minister, while Khawaja Asif, a stalwart in Pakistani politics, is slated to spearhead the Defence Ministry.

Other key assignments include Musadik Malik in charge of the Petroleum Ministry, Shaza Fatima Khawaja leading the Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunication, and Ahad Cheema assuming the role of an adviser to the prime minister for the Establishment Division. In addition, according to sources, Rana Tanveer, Ahsan Iqbal, and Musaddiq Malik are expected to join the federal cabinet.

Moreover, the federal cabinet is set to welcome influential figures such as former Balochistan CM Jam Kamal, PML-Quaid’s Chaudhry Salik Hussain, Abdul Aleem Khan of the Istehkam-e-Pakistan Party (IPP), and PML-N politician Amir Muqam. Notably, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan is poised to secure two ministerial positions in this cabinet configuration.

This swearing-in ceremony marks a significant juncture in Pakistani politics, occurring a week after Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif assumed the mantle of the 24th premier of the country. The presence of dignitaries and key political figures at the oath-taking ceremony underscores the profound implications of this development in shaping the trajectory of the nation’s governance and policies.
