PML-N Leader Attaullah Tarar Discusses Cabinet Reshuffle and Coalition Politics

Attaullah Tarar, a leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), has indicated that a decision regarding the federal cabinet reshuffle will be made within the next forty-eight hours, with two to three names under consideration for the Ministry of Finance.

Speaking during a discussion on Geo News program “Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kay Saath,” Tarar revealed that a meeting regarding reforms in the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) and the national airline (PIA) was attended by Ishaq Dar, Shamsad Akhtar, and Mohammad Aurangzeb.

Tarar stated that they are closely monitoring the situation and that the ruling coalition will hold discussions regarding the presidency elections on Thursday. He also mentioned that matters with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) will be finalized before this.

Regarding independent candidates, Tarar highlighted that they could have joined any party represented in the parliament but refrained from submitting their list for specific seats.

He further remarked that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has been accustomed to leniency despite its consistent violations of the law in the past, leading to a sense of entitlement within the party.

Tarar’s comments shed light on the ongoing political dynamics in Pakistan, with the PML-N preparing for potential changes in key ministerial positions. The coalition’s discussions regarding the upcoming presidential elections indicate a focus on political strategy and alliances.

Moreover, Tarar’s observations about the PTI’s behavior underscore concerns about accountability and the rule of law in the country’s political landscape. As the political scene continues to evolve, it remains to be seen how these developments will impact governance and stability in Pakistan.
