ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) leader Attaullah Tarar said Wednesday that the federal cabinet would be finalised within the next 48 hours, but did not reveal the names of the candidates being considered for the top positions.

“It is not right to confirm something prematurely […] once it is finalised, you will be informed,” Tarar told Geo News’ Shahzeb Khanzada, as reports are rife about the names being discussed as potential members of the federal cabinet of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who has vowed to work day and night for the development of Pakistan amid crucial challenges facing the country.

Earlier today, Geo News quoting sources reported that PM Shehbaz concluded consultations with close aides for the formation of the federal cabinet and deciding on key ministries.

As per the sources, key ministries of defence, foreign affairs, and finance are likely to be handed over to two PML-N bigwigs — Khawaja Asif and Ishaq Dar — and a renowned banker Muhammad Aurangzeb, respectively, the sources said.
