New Pakistan Prime Minister appoints his Cabinet

Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif named his new cabinet on Tuesday.

Doling out key portfolios to officials from the two parties that teamed together to depose Imran Khan.

The government is largely of Sharif’s Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).

These are two traditionally warring dynastic groupings who joined forces to launch a no-confidence vote that removed Khan on April 10.  

However, how long the administration will endure remains, since most of Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) legislators have resigned.

Former cricketer turned politician took his battle to the streets to lobby for an early election in October of next year.  

“It would be difficult for the prime minister to bring them all since some parties have local, regional and national interests,” analyst Hasan Askari. 

“If they address economic difficulties, other issues will be resolved; if the situation worsens, everyone will blame the PML-N, which is in power.” 

Sharif did not name a foreign minister, but that position is believe to go to Bilawal Zardari Bhutto.

Bhutto of the Pakistan People’s Party is the son of former President Asif Ali Zardari.

Hina Rabbani Khar, the first foreign female Pakistan minister in the last PPP government, was named deputy. 

Ismail also indicates that strengthening relations with the International Monetary Fund and putting loan program and enhancing tax collection were priorities. 

Meanwhile, Rana Sanaullah, the new Interior Minister, will also have to deal with increased militancy.

Sanaullah is one of at least four new ministers, including Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

They are currently facing criminal charges from their previous positions.

There were just five women in Sharif’s 37-member cabinet, including feisty Mariyum Aurangzeb.
