3 min read

Well-placed sources said that imprisoned Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan has finalized Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s cabinet, which will comprise more than a dozen members.

During an encounter between the PTI founder and KP Chief Minister Ali Amin Gandapur at the Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi, a few days after the latter was elected as the provincial chief executive by securing 90 votes, the development was reported, the sources added.

According to the details provided by the sources, KP’s cabinet would consist of more than 10 ministers and four advisors.

In the province, it is expected that Taj Mohammad Trand, Mushtaq Ghani, Arshad Ayub, Fazal Shakoor, Dr Amjad, and Riaz Khan will be part of the upcoming cabinet.

Khan also approved the names of Faisal Khan Tarakai, Aqibullah Khan, Meena Khan, and a number of other candidates, according to the sources.

As he talked to journalists after meeting the former prime minister in jail, Gandapur said that the PTI founder would decide about reconciliation with the establishment if he is released.

During his speech in the House of Commons, Gandapur said the establishment, as well as institutions, were both “ours”, but the decision to reconcile with the establishment is to be made by Khan, who was the only prime minister to have been removed through a no-confidence motion.

Asserting his strong position towards Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s government, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf firebrand leader said the Center government had stolen his party’s mandate.

“We are not going to reconcile with mandate thieves and we will create a system that no one in the future will be able to steal the mandate,” he said.

According to the KP CM, the provincial government and the federal government will maintain a working relationship in the future in order to maintain a cooperative relationship.

There has been a theft of our mandate by the federal government, and we are not going to compromise with vote thieves, he claimed.
