ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry is likely to get an additional portfolio of information minister.
According to the Sources, Prime Minister Imran Khan has directed Chaudhry to take the charge of the information ministry. A notification in this regard would be issued shortly.
Sources privy to this development say Prime Minister Imran Khan will also reshuffle the portfolios of several other federal ministers.
Shibli Faraz, who was previously serving as information minister, did not take oath after becoming Senator again from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Meanwhile, Senator Shibli Faraz last month said that “Prime Minister will announce the changes made in the federal cabinet.”
Earlier, the PTI government removed Hafeez Shaikh as finance minister. Adviser on Finance Abdul Hafeez Shaikh was made the finance minister back in December 2020. Hammad Azhar was given an additional portfolio of the finance ministry.
