    I highly doubt if Pervez Khattak would be happy with Defence Ministry. It is a puppet position - he will be nothing more than a public face of the military establishment.

    Well thank goodness shipping and port won't be going to MQM. I think housing might go to Najeeb Haroon from Karachi.

    Yeah shipping and ports has been the preferred ministry for MQM since time immemorable and those in the know, know exactly why.

    Imran Khan's cabinet has representation from all over Pakistan.
    1 Sindhi, 4 Urdu speaking, 11 Punjabis, 1 Balochi, 3 Pashtuns.

    That is the full cabinet. Many key ministries are missing : housing, infrastructure, power, water and so on.

    The cabinet is too small.


    Sehwag and Steyn are the Best.

    That is how it works in other countries at least, I am not sure if Pakistan is the same or not, but I would assume so? Surely Imran Khan won't be looking after things like housing, shipping, ec.

    Thats why pml n was voted out

    Pti has promised change and thats why I and millions of Pakistanis voted for Imran Khan. You need to stop comparing pti with other parties to jusitfy any decision. Your are pakistani first later pti supporter.

    Our relationship with America deteriorated beyond recognition and our narrative was rejected by the international community. All because we did not have an effective foreign ministry. A huge water and power crisis is looming. Because of our deteriorated international relationships, we can’t go to World Bank for the funding of dams and other water projects. So without a water and power development minister, we might face a situation where the whole sector is neglected and we might suffer further import-to-export deficit. That’s why I’m concerned.

    We’ll need a mass de-weaponisation movement in Pakistan if we want to protect the right to life of our citizens. Stray bullets are not only related to fake encounters. Any victory celebration, any marriage celebration, or any other types of celebrations in Pakistan involve aerial firing, ultimately causing stray bullets killing innocent civilians. So to me, that’s a human rights violation.

    Then going by this everything can be considered human rights violation. People running through red signals and running over pedestrians, etc.
    What youre talking about falls under law and order. If anyone gets killed in aerial firing he should be dealt by the law. Laws are there but they dont get implemented.

    Here are some examples of human rights violations. Minorities not given their due rights. Missing people case. Discrimination against a particular caste etc.

    Right to life is a human right. Stray bullets coming from state institutions are a cause for human rights violations. I agree with you on the rest of the issues you have mentioned above.

    DOn't know much about him but he served as Minister of State for Foreign Affairs before and his profile says he received an LLB (Hons.) degree in 1994 from the London School of Economics and Political Science and a Bar-at-Law degree from Lincoln's Inn United Kingdom in 1995 (same as Jinnah).

    Minister of education should really see the educational program Chal Para done by Shezad Roy few years back where he went to schools all over the country and researched education problems. It is 22 episode program and discuss in detail the problems. Really informative.

    Shezi being friend of IK so i hope he reaches out to IK again and also can back it up with his great work with Zindagi trust.

    I hope it helps him in making necessary legislations. The more worrisome news is that he doesn’t have prior experience in this department and he will have to acquire some expertise in water management. Basically, he’ll be learning on the job. Wish him good luck, it’s clearly needed.

    My hope is that the current Pakistan government find a way to develop our human resource. Partnering international firms, be it IT, Law, Business management, or any other field of life, to schools and colleges of urban as well as rural areas of Pakistan. I hope that the provincial governments update their educational curriculums. I hope that vast network of Universities are setup, covering each city and town. I hope that the governments create a universal education bank through which students can apply for easy and affordable loans. Because all I can do right now is hope for a better and more skilful future of our next generation.

    The biggest letdown is Khalid Maqbool as IT minister.

    This is one of the most important ministry to change Pakistan and you gave this to Mqm. Mqm ministers are known to hire own party workers for important post

    Disappointing, i now believe IK will fail to deliver.

    After spending 10 years criticizing and protesting against Musharraf's rule and standing alongside corrupt and hypocrites like Nawaz Sharif and MMA, he has come to power and become Mush 2.0.

    Of course Mush era was not so bad compared to others but it was far from perfect, like other cabinets, ministries were handed out to people with no experience or expertise in the fields, its like handing over favors to friends and family and IK seems to be doing the same to cling on to power by gaining support from a few powerfull politians.

    Where is the change, how is this cabinet going to deliver when these people arnt even experts in there field.

    IT/Technology ministry was huge, Pakistan has missed out on many opportunites in this sector and now with the massive boom in tech/AI/robotics surly IK could have found some competent Pakistani in Silicon Valley so Pakistan can cash in on this boom and bring huge economic benefit to Pakistan, but he handed the ministry over to MQM to gain there support.

    In other areas if IK could not actully find other talented guys and had to stick with Mushs Men, then it seems theres a talent vacuum in Pakistan, where are the Pakistani intellect in finance/economics/banking who can revive this economy, maybe not in Pakistan but surly there must be some in the west, just like augusto pinochet brough the chicargo boys and milton friedman to fix Chiles economy.

    People need to understand that now is not the time for on the job learning or training when the nation is going through its worst economic crisis in history. Musharrafs initial team from 1999-2002 had the top most technocrats in the respective ministries and if these guys are untainted from a corruption point of view then so be it

    In any case ik has said he will have bi weekly cabinet meetings where everyone's performance will be monitored and if the ministers fail to deliver in 6 months they will be let go off.

    Just read somewhere that Ali Zaidi wanted IT ministry and he is a successful IT entrepreneur.

    Pti put up detailed IT policy and $2 billion of e goverment project. You are handing over this ministry and the whole policy to a guy who doesn't know how to use a computer.

    I wish we had done well in central punjab, got 6 to 7 seats more. We had to comprise and get blackmailed by MQM

    16 ministers from PM Imran Khan's cabinet sworn in

    Sixteen members of Prime Minister Imran Khan's 21-strong cabinet took oath at a ceremony held at the President House in Islamabad on Monday morning.

    President Mamnoon Hussain administered the oath to the nominated federal ministers. Newly sworn-in Prime Minister Khan was by his side.

    The ceremony commenced with the national anthem. This was followed by recitation of verses from the Holy Quran. The cabinet members then rose to take the oath of office.

    The new cabinet includes 16 federal ministers and five advisers.

    PTI’s vice chairman Makhdoom Shah Mehmood Qureshi will be the country’s new foreign minister, a position where he had previously served during the last PPP government between 2008-13 under the then president Asif Zardari and former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani. Qureshi had resigned from the cabinet after developing differences with the party leadership during a reshuffle in the cabinet.

    Qureshi had also once served as provincial finance minister in the cabinet of Nawaz Sharif when he was the chief minister of the Punjab during the military rule of Gen Ziaul Haq.

    With no surprise, Asad Umar has been made minister for finance and revenue whereas the portfolio of the information and broadcasting has been given to PTI’s information secretary Fawad Chaudhry, who had also previously served as spokesman for Gen Musharraf’s All-Pakistan Muslim League (APML) and remained part of the media team of PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari before joining the PTI.

    Ghulam Sarwar Khan, who defeated PML-N’s estranged leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan in the July 25 elections in two constituencies, has been allocated the portfolio of petroleum ministry. Nisar had also served as petroleum minister in the first two governments of Nawaz Sharif.

    Dr Shireen Mazari has been given the portfolio of human rights, whereas former Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief minister Pervez Khattak is the country’s new defence minister.

    Former PTI information secretary Shafqat Mehmood has been given the portfolio of federal education and professional training with the additional charge of national history and literary heritage division. Having Masters’ degree from Harvard University, Mehmood had served as senator in the 1990s. He also served as Punjab information minister in the PML-N government in 1999.

    Makhdoom Khusro Bakhtiyar, who had previously served as minister of state for foreign affairs during the military regime of Gen Musharraf, has been made the minister for water resources.

    PTI MNA from Rawalpindi Aamir Mehmood Kiyani is the minister for National Health Services, Regulations and Coordination.

    Among those who have been given representation in the federal cabinet for being leaders of the PTI’s allies are Senator Farogh Naseem of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (law and justice); Chaudhry Tariq Bashir Cheema of the PML-Q (states and frontier regions); Zubaida Jalal of the Balochistan Awami Party (defence production); Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rashid Ahmed (railways); Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui of the MQM-P (information technology and telecommunication); Dr Fehmida Mirza of the Grand Democratic Alliance (inter-provincial coordination) and an independent MNA from Fata Noorul Haq Qadri (religious affairs and interfaith harmony).

    Senator Naseem, who had served as the youngest advocate general of Sindh, also represented former military ruler Gen Musharraf in a court hearing the high treason case under Article 6 of the Constitution.

    Zubaida Jalal, too, was an active member of the cabinet as education minister during the regime of Gen Musharraf.

    AML chief Sheikh Rashid Ahmed has managed to get back the portfolio of railways, the position he had previously enjoyed during the rule of Gen Musharraf. Previously, he had served as a cabinet member under former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

    Dr Fehmida Mirza, who had enjoyed the honour of the first woman speaker of the National Assembly during the PPP government from 2008 to 2013, contested the July 25 elections from the platform of the GDA after her spouse Dr Zulfiqar Mirza had developed differences with the government.

    PM Khan has retained the vast interior portfolio, for at least the time being.

    Advisers
    Those who have been appointed as advisers to the prime minister are former law minister in the PPP government Babar Awan (parliamentary affairs); former KP chief secretary Shehzad Arbab (establishment division); former minister in the regime of Gen Musharraf Abdul Razzak Dawood (commerce, textile, industry & production and investment); Dr Ishrat Husain (institutional reforms and austerity) who had served as State Bank governor during the military rule of Gen Musharraf and another former minister of state in the Gen Musharraf regime Amin Aslam (climate change).

    ISLAMABAD: Former deputy prosecutor National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Mirza Shahzad Akbar was appointed on Monday as special assistant to Prime Minister Imran Khan on accountability.

    "In terms of rule 4(6) of the Rules of Business, 1973 read with serial number 1A of Schedule-VA of the said rules, the prime minister has been pleased to appoint, with immediate effect, Mirza Shahzad Akbar as special assistant to the prime minister on accountability, with the status of Minister of State," said a notification issued in this regard.

    Akbar is the director of Foundation for Fundamental Rights, an organisation that provides legal aid to enforce fundamental rights guaranteed under the Constitution of Pakistan.

    Last night during his first address to the nation after assuming office, PM Imran took aim at corrupt politicians and said that a high-powered task force would be formed to recover the money taken out of Pakistan illegally.

    “Never vote for a leader who has taken money out of the country,” PM Imran said during his address.

    The prime minister stressed that there was a need to concentrate our efforts on corruption and that he would meet with the NAB chairman and discuss what help was required.

    Calling on the need to fix the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan, the prime minister said he had kept the Ministry of Interior under him because he wanted to monitor money-laundering. “We will pass the whistleblower act. Anyone identifying corruption in any sector, a whistleblower, will get 20 to 25 per cent of money taken back."

    PM Imran also told the nation told that people stealing the country’s money are our enemies and destroying us. "Those stealing the country's money are destroying you. You have to help protect this money. It is your responsibility to stop these people and help me. You need to keep a check on us on how we spend your tax money. I want to assure everyone that Allah has given our country everything and we have to protect it," he said.

    Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has unveiled his 21-member Cabinet, most of whom previously held key posts in the regime of former dictator General (retd) Pervez Musharraf.

    Out of the 21 names announced, 16 will be ministers while five others will advisers to Khan, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) spokesman Fawad Chaudhry said on Saturday, hours after the cricketer-turned-politician was sworn-in as the country's 22nd Prime Minister.


    According to the list shared by Chaudhry on his Twitter account, veteran politician Shah Mahmood Qureshi will be the foreign minister.

    Qureshi, the vice president of the party, was the foreign minister from 2008 to 2011 under the Pakistan Peoples Party government when the 2008 Mumbai terror attack

    He was in New Delhi when 10 Pakistan-based LeT terrorists attacked India's financial capital.

    Pervaiz Khattak has been appointed the defence minister while Asad Umer will be the finance minister. Khattak served as the chief minister of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province from 2013-18.

    Asad Umer is the son of former Lt Gen Mohammad Umer who was part of the Pakistan Army during 1971 war with India.

    The newly-announced Cabinet is expected to take oath tomorrow at the President's House.

    At least 12 members of Khan's Cabinet served under General (retd) Musharraf, The News reported.

    The new Cabinet includes a former spokesperson of Musharraf, his attorney and several members of his cabinet and core team, the paper said.

    The Cabinet members who served under Musharraf in various capacities include Farogh Naseem, Tariq Bashir Cheema, Ghulam Sarwar Khan, Zubaida Jalal, Fawad Chauhdry, Sheikh Rashid Ahmad, Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, Shafqat Mehmood, Makhdoom Khusro Bakhtiar, Abdul Razak Dawood, Dr Ishrat Hussain and Amin Aslam, the paper said.

    Five of the new Cabinet members, including Khattak and Qureshi, had served as ministers in past Pakistan Peoples Party governments, it added.

    Sheikh Rashid from Rawalpindi has been appointed as the railway minister. He previously held the same portfolio under the Musharraf regime.

    Three women including Shireen Mazari, Zubaida Jalal and Fehmida Mriza are also part of Khan's Cabinet.

    The five advisors who have status of ministers include known faces like former banker Ishrat Hussain, businessman Abdul Razzak Dawood and Babar Awan.

    According to the Pakistan's Constitution, the size of the federal cabinet should be not more than 11 per cent of the total strength of the National Assembly and Senate.

    Khan, the chairman of PTI, was administered the oath of office by President Mamnoon Hussain at a simple ceremony held at the Aiwan-e-Sadr (the President House) in Islamabad on Saturday.

    His government is the third consecutive democratic government in Pakistan since 2008 when Gen Musharraf announced elections after serving as president from 2001 to 2008 following a bloodless coup in 1999.

    The PPP formed the government in 2008, followed by the PML-N led by jailed former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in 2013.

    Pakistan's powerful military has ruled the country through various coups for nearly half of the country's history since independence in 1947

    Taking the fact that they had to give a few ministries to coalition partners, I would say 6.5/10. All the main ministries were given to the best candidates, some of the small parties were adjusted well.

    My only qualms are that IT ministry should have gone to Ali Zaidi, and Ghulam Sarwar probably shouldn't have been given a ministry. While some ministries were given to people with no experience in those fields, it isn't really a must, and the same sort of thing happens in the West too.

    100% agree with this. I fail to understand why he wasn't given it in the first place? MQM could have been adjusted somewhere else.

    Is Dr. Atta-ur-Rahman going to be given some sort of responsibility? The guy is pretty sharp.

    Coming to the OP, I would give the cabinet positions a 6/10, but this is just the beginning. I'm sure if they prove themselves these ratings will start going up.

    ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan is currently chairing a meeting of the federal cabinet at PM Office.

    The federal cabinet is reviewing a seven-point agenda and important decisions are expected to be taken during the meeting, sources said.

    According to sources, here is the 7-point agenda of the cabinet meeting:

    1. Abolition of discretionary funds

    2. Instructions on visits abroad

    3. Presentation on load shedding

    4. Special audit of mass transport system in the country

    5. Massive tree plantation in the country

    6. Shift to six working days in a week for government offices

    7. Launch of a major cleanliness drive in the country

    Further, sources said the approval for disbanding of Capital Administration and Development Division (CADD) is likely to be given at the cabinet meeting.

    According to sources,institutions that come under CADD would be handed over to the cabinet division. The division, which is the federal government’s administrative unit that oversees Islamabad’s educational and health institutions, will be given to Adviser to Prime Minister on Parliamentary Affairs Babar Awan.

    The CADD was created in 2011 after the devolution of over 20 ministries to all four federating units through 18th Constitutional Amendment with an aim to oversee the Islamabad Capital Territory’s educational, health, population and social welfare organisations.

    Initially, it got the control of 22 organisations related to ICT but later, the capital’s social welfare and child welfare development, FG Polytechnic Institute of Women, the departments of libraries, archaeology and museums, population welfare, Zakat and Ushr, the training and education and rehabilitation of disabled and charitable endowment were also placed under it, The News reported.

    Some organisations were later taken away by powerful divisions from it despite being ICT-only. Noted among them is the district administration, which is currently answerable to the interior ministry. Ironically, few CADD employees are understood to be drawing salary and fringe benefits from the health ministry’s foreign-funded projects as well.
