15-member Cabinet in Pak

After its leader Imran Khan was sworn in as Pakistan’s Prime Minister, the Tehreek-e-Insaf on Saturday announced a new 15-member Cabinet. Shah Mahmood Qureshi, who previously served as Foreign Minister under a Pakistan Peoples Party government until 2011 when he switched to PTI, returns to the role. Pervez Khattak, the former Chief Minister of Mr. Khan’s stronghold in Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa, was appointed Defence Minister. Mr. Khan, who led Pakistan’s cricket team to World Cup victory in 1992, had invited the rest of the team to the swearing-in ceremony, and fast bowler Wasim Akram was pictured smiling among the crowd. Mr. Khan’s third wife Bushra Bibi kept her eyes cast modestly downwards during Saturday’s ceremony. It was her first public appearance since their wedding earlier this year, and she appeared escorted by tight security and covered from head to toe in a white niqab, a conservative garment by Pakistani standards.
