Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) lawmakers on Wednesday (May 8) during a parliamentary party meeting, headed by Prime Minister Imran Khan, were seem to be unhappy with certain policies of the government and particularly the inclusion of n on-elected individuals in the federal cabinet, sources said.
“There is no visible role of public representatives in the government’s policies,” the members pointed out, adding that the inclusion of “non-elected individuals” in the cabinet was “unacceptable”. PTI leaders argued that, the parliament has a lot of competent people. Therefore imposing unelected people is simply inappropriate.
MNA from Faisalabad, Raja Riaz said giving preference to un-elected people is beyond comprehension. “The elected representatives have no role to play in the government policies,” he said. Another MNA from Faisalabad Khurram Shahzad “The opposition is being given a chance to criticise the government”.
Prime Minister Imran Khan in response of all reservations said “I still consider Asad Umar as my right hand. It is my discretion to decide the order on which each player will play. I take responsibility for my decision. I also realise gravity of issues faced by the people so I changed the strategy. The experts of a field can better understand the issues which is why some of the technocrats have been made part of the team” .
Imran has included several unelected members including, Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan, Abdul Hafeez Sheikh and Nadeem Babar as advisors to different ministries.
