Sheikh Rasheed made interior minister

News Desk:

In a major reshuffle in the federal cabinet, Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed has been appointed as the interior minister. Hafeez Sheikh has been appointed as the federal minister for finance.

Sheikh Rasheed has been replaced by Azam Swati. This is the fourth federal cabinet shakeup in less than three years of the PTI government.

The reshuffle comes days after the Islamabad High Court ruled that unelected advisers and special assistants could not head government’s committees and had subsequently set aside the notification of the Cabinet Committee on Privatisation, headed by Hafeez. The move was seen as a major blow to government’s privatisation efforts that were being spearheaded by unelected members of the federal cabinet.
