PESHAWAR: Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa’s (K-P) 12-member provincial cabinet took oath on Thursday, Geo News reported.
K-P Governor Engineer Shaukatullah Khan administered the oath.
The cabinet members included Habibur Rehman, Inayatullah, Shaukat Yousufzai, Israrullah, Bakht Bedar, Abrar Hussain, Muhammad Atif and others.
Two senior ministers – Sikandar Sherpao of the Qaumi Watan Party (QWP) and Sirajul Haq of the Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) – had already taken oath on May 31. The same day, Pervez Khattak took oath at the Governor House as the 26th Chief Minister (CM) of K-P.
The long drawn out decision on the allocation of the education ministry – which both Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) desired – resulted in the coalition partners taking 13 days to finalise cabinet members.
