PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari to take oath as Foreign Minister of Pakistan today
Islamabad: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari will take oath as a federal minister of Pakistan on Wednesday.
According to media reports, he might be taking oath as the foreign minister of the country.
Bilawal made the announcement Tuesday in a press conference after a meeting of the PPP's Central Executive Committee (CEC). The development comes after Adviser to Prime Minister on Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Qamar Zaman Kaira said last week his party chairman would take oath within two days, reports Geo News.
Pakistan PM Shehbaz Sharif formed the government recently after Imran Khan was ousted from power after he lost a no-confidence vote.
During the press conference, Bilawal was quoted as saying by Geo News that former prime minister Imran Khan's "foreign conspiracy" narrative hurt Pakistan's image on international forums.
Bilawal said the PTI chairman's "conspiracies" would continue as he keeps shifting his targets from the judiciary to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).
The PPP chairman said Khan violated the Constitution and considered it a "piece of paper", while ex-deputy speaker Qasim Suri and President Arif Alvi were involved in the "conspiracy" with him as well.
