PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has announced that he will be sworn into the position of the federal minister today and that he is likely to be appointed as the country’s foreign minister.
After a meeting of the PPP’s Central Executive Committee (CEC) on Tuesday, Bilawal held a news conference in which he made the announcement. The news comes after Qamar Zaman Kaira, Advisor to the Prime Minister on Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan, stated last week that his party’s chairman Bilawal Bhutto would take the oath as a foreign minister within two days.
Bilawal was in attendance as the first phase member of the federal cabinet who took the oath, although he did not participate in the ceremony. However, Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb has pledged that the PPP chairman will take the oath as soon as he returns to Pakistan.
The PML-N’s Nawaz Sharif met with Kaira twice to exchange views on political concerns, Kaira said in a conversation with media in London.
According to Bilawal in today’s news conference, Imran Khan’s story of a “foreign conspiracy” undermined Pakistan’s reputation in international forums because it was based on false information.
PTI chairman Imran Khan’s “conspiracies” would continue, according to Bilawal, who claims the PTI chairman will keep moving his objectives from law enforcement to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).
Khan, according to the PPP chairman, violated the Constitution and treated it as if it were a “piece of paper,” and that former deputy speaker Qasim Suri and President Arif Alvi were also participating in the “conspiracy” with Khan.
He called for an investigation of the events that unfolded the night before the vote on the no-confidence motion against the then-prime minister, which took place the following day.
“Imran Khan’s politics is founded on fabrications and disinformation. He is running a campaign with the slogan ‘why didn’t you save me?’ He is aiming his ire at any institution that did not save him, including the military “According to the chairman of the PPP.
Bilawal accused Khan of making “all of Pakistan’s institutions controversial,” and he urged them to continue operating within their constitutional mandates.
