PM Imran Khan plans to reshuffle federal cabinet: sources


Prime Minister Imran Khan has decided to reshuffle the federal cabinet, sources informed.

This move will be one of several reorganizations of the PTI government since it came to power.

Sources said the premier would change portfolios of the cabinet members based on their performance. Newly-elected Senators Faisal Vawda and Ali Zafar might become a part of the cabinet.

This will be the fifth cabinet reshuffle since the PTI took office three years ago.

In December 2020, during the last reorganization, Prime Minister Imran Khan changed the positions of cabinet members and appointed Sheikh Rasheed as Minister of the Interior.

Moreover, the premier appointed Ijaz Shah as the minister for narcotics control. He was earlier serving as the interior minister. Azam Swati, who had a portfolio of narcotics control, was appointed as the minister for railways. Adviser on Finance Abdul Hafeez Shaikh was made the finance minister after he took oath as a federal minister.
