PESHAWAR: The provincial government will announce on Wednesday the induction of two new faces in the provincial cabinet after Prime Minister Imran Khan gave his provisional approval.
According to sources, in this regard, a meeting which will be chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan would start at 4:00 pm today.
The performance of the provincial cabinet will be reviewed in the meeting and reshuffling is also expected in the portfolios of the ministers and assistants.
The names for those to be replaced and those who will be brought in to replace them have already been finalised by the party’s provincial leadership and that only the premier’s nod is awaited.
Yesterday, sources within the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) provincial cabinet have told that in a recent meeting between the provincial governor Shah Farman and Chief Minister Mahmood Khan, it was decided to expand the provincial cabinet.
Earlier in the week, reports emerged that apart from the expansion of the provincial cabinet, a shakeup of the key, provincial decision-making body is likely with some of the incumbents, including advisers and special assistants making way owing to their poor performance.
