Shahbaz Sharif, president of the Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), is the 23rd Prime Minister of Pakistan. He formed a 33-member cabinet on Tuesday (April 19th). However, his allies are not ‘satisfied’ with the new cabinet.
Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjarani presided over the swearing-in ceremony of the cabinet at Ain-e-Sadar. The ceremony was postponed after President Arif Alvi refused to swear in the new ministers. However, in the absence of the president, Sadiq Sanjarani administered the oath of office to the new ministers on Tuesday. In the first phase, the swearing in ceremony of 26 federal ministers, three ministers of state and three advisers to the prime minister was completed.
