Pakistan PM Shehbaz Sharif’s federal Cabinet not decided yet




The world witnessed the political crisis in Pakistan as Imran Khan was removed as the Prime Minister of the country. Shehbaz Sharif became the new PM of Pakistan but there seem several hurdles in his way.

Pakistan PM Shehbaz Sharif’s new federal Cabinet hasn’t been announced yet and it seems that it may take some more time. The reason behind the delay is said to be the fragile nature of the ruling alliance. Sharif wants to take along all his allies, a media report stated on Wednesday.

According to sources, the leadership of both the parties — Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) — decided to accommodate all allied parties in its federal Cabinet and offer them the ministries of their choice.

The ruling coalition includes eight political parties and four independents. Notably, Shehbaz Sharif became the prime minister of Pakistan with a mere two-vote margin. Therefore, Sharif would not want to start his term with any misunderstandings among the allies.

On Monday, Pakistan’s Parliament elected unopposed Sharif as the 23rd prime minister of the country. It came after the ouster of Imran Khan after he failed in the no-trust vote. Sharif was elected Prime Minister after securing 174 votes out of 342.
