PM to dissolve Federal Cabinet soon: Badar
ISLAMABAD: The Central Executive Committee of Pakistan People’s Party Friday reached a decision during its meeting to dissolve the Federal Cabinet.

This was announced by Senior PPP leader Jehangir Badar at a news briefing along with PPP Information Secretary Fauzia Wahab after the party’s CEC meeting here.

He said Co-Chairman PPP Asif Ali Zardari has authorized Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani to make the decision of dissolving the Federal Cabinet. The Prime Minister can dissolve the Cabinet by taking PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari into confidence, he added.

“Resignations have been submitted to the PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari who would use them as and when required,” Jehangir Badar said.

He said Federal Minister for Commerce Amin Fahim was the first to hand over his resignation to the Co-Chairman PPP Asif Ali Zardari.

Jehangir Badar said the CEC meeting was held with an agenda to discuss the challenges being faced by the country with particular reference to the economic condition and war against terrorism.

He said all the CEC members reposed confidence in the PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari and paid tribute to him for all the achievements made during the past three years of PPP-led government.

To a question, Jehangir Badar said that the decision to dissolve the Federal Cabinet was not made on the proposal of Pakistan Muslim League-N Chief Nawaz Sharif.

Earlier, the CEC meeting was held with Co-Chairman PPP and President Asif Ali Zardari in the chair here at President House.

The decision of dissolving the Federal Cabinet was made with a view to reducing the present size of the cabinet which comprises of an army of 60 ministers. The cabinet had, for its enormous size, been facing severe criticism from the cross sections of society.
