LAHORE: A 37-member Punjab cabinet was sworn in at a ceremony held at the Governor’s House on Sunday.

Punjab’s “trustee” Chief Minister Hamza Shehbaz’s 37-member cabinet took the oath of their offices at the Governor House on Sunday.

Chief Minister Shehbaz took the decision during a cabinet meeting on Saturday.

The oath was administered by Punjab Governor Baligh-ur-Rehman after their letter of appointment was read out.

The ministers are: Rana Muhammad Iqbal Khan, Mehr Ijaz Ahmad, Siddique Khan Baloch, Muhammad Kazim Pirzada, Chaudhry Shafique, Malik Nadeem Kamran, Yawar Zaman, Col (retd) Ayub, Chaudhry Iqbal Gujjar, Mansha Ullah Butt, Tanvir Islam Sethi, Jehangir Khanzada, Rana Mashood Ahmad, Mian Mujtaba Shuja ur Rehman, Khawaja Imran Nazir, Bilal Yasin, Malik Saif ul Malock Khokhar, Fida Hussain Watto, Rana Ijaz, Uzma Zahid Bukhari, Khalil Tahir Sindhu, Ghulam Qasim Hunjra, Rana Muhammad Tariq, Zaheer Iqbal, Zeshan Rafique, Sania Ashiq, Syed Hassan Murtaza, Syed Ali Haider Gillani, Bilal Asghar Warriach, Qasim Langah, Malik Asad Khokhar, Ahmad Ali Aulakh, Sibtain Bukhari, Saba Sadiq, Ashraf Ansari, Imran Khalid Butt and Rana Liaqat Ali.

The oath-taking ceremony was attended by many political figures, including the Punjab inspector-general of police, members of the provincial assembly, and the information secretary.

PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry said the oath-taking of the cabinet was against the Supreme Court orders because Hamza was not an “elected” chief minister while reacting to the development.

“They are making fun of the court orders. They are acting like the Sicilian mafia, which is a matter of concern,” he told reporters in Islamabad.
