Shehbaz Sharif may take time to appoint his Cabinet. Report suggests he is busy visiting Karachi and MQM-P’s Bahadurabad headquarters. However, the new prime minister is unlikely to appoint his Cabinet until Thursday. This may also give him time to decide on his foreign policy. The new government is likely to move away from the anti-western rhetoric that Khan used, which damaged Pakistan’s diplomatic relations with the West.

Shehbaz Sharif may take time to appoint his Cabinet because of the lack of consensus in the coalition. While Khan was united in opposition to Nawaz, Sharif’s government was not. It did not have a clear policy agenda. Sharif’s Cabinet will be composed of people from seven different parties, including the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, which is led by Sharif’s brother, as well as the Pakistan People’s Party, founded by the Bhutto family. Sharif’s Cabinet is expected to include Asif Zardari and Bilawal Bhutto, the son of Benazir Bhutto.

Shehbaz Sharif’s name suggests he has an excellent reputation with the Chinese leadership. In fact, Sharif played a major role in the development of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, and his family has previous engagements with Beijing. While Khan has strong ties with China, Sharif’s background is better for the bilateral relationship.

Pakistan’s political crisis has escalated over the last week. The country’s military has repeatedly intervened in the past, including the dissolution of Parliament. The new prime minister, Shehbaz Sharif, is a younger brother of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif. Both have been plagued by allegations of corruption and have undergone investigations.

While the new prime minister may not appoint his Cabinet right away, he’s likely to finalise his list of cabinet members by tonight. PPP chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and PML-Q leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman are likely to be in the federal cabinet. Meanwhile, the PPP will give Sherry Rehman and Mustaf Nawaz Khokhar a ministerial position. Among the female candidates are Maryam Aurangzeb and Rana Sanaullah. She will also likely be a minister of information.

Despite these obstacles, the former prime minister is expected to fare better than Khan. However, Sharif’s political career has been fraught with controversy – he was accused of ordering extrajudicial killings. As the new prime minister, Sharif will have to deal with a coalition of political parties whose members have been at loggerheads for decades. Sharif will probably not choose to remain in a coalition as the general elections approach.

In an interview with The New York Times, he explained the foreign policy priorities of his government. In Pakistan, he reaffirmed the country’s close ties with China and criticized Imran Khan’s mishandling of the Saudi Arabian government. He also mentioned the disputed issue of Kashmir and rescinded Article 370 in the Indian Constitution.
