Abbasi inducts 44 Mins, Khawaja Asif is new FM”

Chairing the first meeting of his cabinet held in Islamabad, Khaqan Abbasi has expressed the resolve to continue the journey of progress and democracy initiated by the former prime minister Nawaz Sharif who was disqualified by the Supreme Court in Panama Leaks case.

To a question, Marriyum Aurangzeb said that Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi is the choice of former Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif and the decision to appoint Khaqan Abbasi for 45 days was taken by the parliamentary party of the PML (N).

PML-N leadership is unsure about Shahbaz's resignation as his departure from Punjab could weaken the party's grip over the country's most powerful and populated province. The last full-time Foreign Minister was Hina Rabbani Khar, who served in the Pakistan Peoples Party government. There are 28 federal ministers and 19 state ministers in the new Cabinet, nearly double Mr Sharif's 25-strong Cabinet when he swept the polls in 2013.

The "reshuffle" was aimed at bolstering support for the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) ahead of the general elections in mid-2018, with President Mamnoon Hussain administering the oath of office to 47-member cabinet that included 28 federal and 19 state ministers in a televised ceremony at his official residence.

Meanwhile, Nauert said she is not aware of the claims by Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif that the then US President Bill Clinton had offered him Dollars 5 billion during Kargil war. Nisar Khan has refused to be part of the new Government.

Ishaq Dar will continue as Finance Minister whereas Pervez Malik will be the new Minister for Commerce.

Saad Rafique will retain his post as minister of railways.

Daniyal Aziz from Narowal, Talal Chaudhry from Faisalabad, Arshad Leghari from Rahim Yar Khan and Junaid Anwar Chaudhry from Toba Tek Singh are said to be among the newcomers in the cabinet.

PMl-N's information secretary Mushahidullah Khan returned to the cabinet as minister of climate change.
