Abbasi cabinet includes 27 federal ministers and 17 ministers of state.Pakistan’s new Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Friday formed a cabinet filled with allies of toppled leader Nawaz Sharif, in a reshuffle that appears aimed at bolstering support ahead of general elections due in mid-2018.
Khurram Dastagir — the commerce minister in Sharif’s cabinet — will be taking over as the defence minister.
Senator Mushahidullah Khan will be the minister for climate change, the portfolio he lost when he resigned around two years ago after a controversial interview alleging the military’s role in scheming against the civilian government.
Pervaiz Malik will become minister for commerce.
Ishaq Dar, a powerful finance minister, returns in the same role, despite a criminal investigation ordered against him by the Supreme Court.
Khawaja Asif, is to be foreign minister after having simultaneously run the ministries of defense and power.
Arshad Laghari will be the state minister for industries and production, Junaid Anwar will take oath as state minister for communication, Talal Chaudhry will become the state minister for interior while Marriyum Aurangzeb will retain her portfolio as state minister for information and broadcasting.
Anusha Rahman will retain her portfolio as state minister for IT and Telecommunication, Saira Afzal Tarar will also retain her portfolio as state minister for health.
The cabinet has almost doubled in size to 47 members.
No decision appears to have yet been made by the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party over whether Abbasi will stay as premier or step down after a brief period to make way for Sharif’s brother Shahbaz, as outlined previously.
MNAs Daniyal Aziz, Mir Dostain Domki and Mumtaz Tarar did not attend the ceremony despite being on the list of new ministers.

Statement of AAP National Convenor, Arvind Kejriwal on the Sardar Sarovar Dam issue:
The Narmada Valley is facing a devastating prospect. After the gates of the dam have been closed, the water level has been constantly rising. Our party’s MP Bhagwant Mann toured the region that will be submerged and the rehabilitation area, and he found that over 1 lakh people are living in the villages that are in the area affected by the dam gates closing, but no arrangements have been made for them in the space identified for their rehabilitation. Police and bulldozers have been despatched in large numbers to the area.
Demanding that the rehabilitation of all residents living in the affected region be completed before the waters submerge their villages, Medha Patkar has been on a fast and her health is deteriorated. Despite her fast entering the ninth day, no attempts have been made by the government to reach out to her.
Legally the rehabilitation must take place six months before the submergence of villages, and this has been clearly stated by the Supreme Court as well. It is completely illegal, inhuman and undemocratic to use police force to evict the residents of the Valley under such circumstances.
I strongly support the fight for the rights of those being displaced in the Narmada Valley and appeal to the Centre to protect their rights and our democracy, by stopping the Narmada waters from submerging the villages of the affected region. The Centre should engage in a constructive dialogue with the displaced and ensure complete rehabilitation before closing the gates of the dam.
