ISLAMABAD: Nearly a month after ministers of Jamiat Ulema Islam-Fazal group (JUI-F) had tendered their resignations over differences with the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), the government accorded JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman the status of federal minister.

The move, seen as appeasing the estranged JUI-F, was sanctioned by the prime minister.

According to an official notification issued from the Cabinet Division, the department which issues official announcement of such appointments, said that the “Prime Minister has been pleased to confer, with immediate effect, the status of Federal Minister on Maulana Fazlur Rehman.”

No portfolio for Maulana Fazlur Rehman was announced so far.

The move was made under rule 15(1)(g) read with serial No. 1A of Schedule-V-A of the Rules of Business, 1973.
