Shaukat Tareen appointed federal finance minister in another reshuffle

News Desk:

Famous economist, Shaukat Tareen has been appointed as the federal finance minister in a major reshuffle on Friday. Hamad Azhar has been given the energy ministry. Fawad Chaudhary, the newly appointed federal information minister said.

Meanwhile, former energy minister Omar Ayub has been made the minister for economic affairs. Former information minister Shibli Faraz, who was replaced by Fawad Chaudhry a day earlier, has been made the minister for science and technology — the office previously headed by Chaudhry.

Khusro Bakhtiar has been made the minister for industries and production in place of Azhar.

Last month, Prime Minister Imran Khan had removed then finance minister Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh and given the portfolio to Minister for Industries Hammad Azhar as an additional charge.

Faraz had said at the time that though Hammad Azhar was given an additional charge of finance minister, he (Hammad) would continue to serve as finance minister on a long-term basis as the prime minister was quite satisfied and happy with Azhar’s performance.
