People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari will take oath as the foreign minister in a day or two, his party’s leader and Adviser to the Prime Minister on Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Qamar Zaman Kaira confirmed on Saturday.
Bilawal attended the oath taking ceremony of 34 ministers and advisors, but he did not take the oath. Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb had assured that he would take the oath after he returns to Pakistan.
In a conversation with journalists in London, Kaira said Bilawal has left for Pakistan — after he held two meetings with PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif to exchange views on political matters.
In their last meeting, they discussed ways forward after a “constitutional victory for democracy, the rule of law and supremacy of parliament” and agreed to work closely to “repair the rot across the board,” read a joint statement.
Former premier Nawaz Sharif led the PML-N delegation during the talks, while the PPP side comprised Bilawal, Senator Sherry Rehman, Naveed Qamar and Kaira.
