JUI-F decides to join federal government

16 January, 2014

ISLAMABAD: Finally the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) has decided to join the federal government, seven months after elections in May, and at least two JUI-F members will be taking oath as federal ministers on Thursday (today).

The JUI-F had been in negotiations with the government at the centre ever since the elections last May. Akram Khan Durrani had been nominated once as a federal minister but an official notification for his appointment was never issued.

Akram Durrani will now be taking oath as federal minister at the Aiwan-e-Sadr on Thursday. While Durrani will reportedly be appointed as a federal minister, Maulana Ghafoor Haideri is expected to assume charge as a minister of state. There was no announcement of the portfolios they will be accorded.

Khurram Dastagir, the incumbent Minister of State for Commerce and Textile Industry, is expected to take oath as a federal minister. Abbas Afridi will also be taking oath as minister. "We are closer to PML-N ideologically. As a goodwill gesture we have decided to support PM-designate Nawaz Sharif in the vote of confidence," Maulana Fazlur Rehman said.

End.
