According to sources, consultation is ongoing at the Prime Minister House to decide on the name who will take charge as the new Finance Minister of Pakistan.

The names which are reportedly under consideration as per sources, are: erstwhile finance ministers – Shaukat Tareen, Hafeez Shaikh – former governors of State Bank – Ishrat Hussain, Shamashad Akhtar – and incumbent federal Minister for Energy Umar Ayub.

Earlier today, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNA Asad Umar announced that he is stepping down from his post as finance minister.

In a statement on Twitter, Asad Umar broke the news by saying, “As part of a cabinet reshuffle PM desired that I take the energy minister portfolio instead of finance.”

“However, I have obtained his consent to not take any cabinet position. I strongly believe PM Imran Khan is the best hope for Pakistan and inshallah will make a naya pakistan,” the former minister added.
