Former Pakistan foreign minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari is likely to return for another term as his Pakistan Peoples Party and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) were close to finalizing a power-sharing deal. The Express Tribune newspaper reported on Sunday that if insiders are to be believed, Bilawal will join Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s cabinet as foreign minister. He said that during their recent talks a consensus was reached among the party stalwarts.

He claimed that Bilawal, who was initially reluctant to join the cabinet, agreed to become the foreign minister once again. The newspaper said both parties are now working out the details and timing of the PPP formally joining the cabinet. Citing sources, it was said that Shahbaz wants PPP to be included in the cabinet before the next budget to be presented in the first week of June. However, it is not clear whether the PPP will join the cabinet before or after the budget. According to sources, one thing is certain. PPP will be part of the cabinet in June.

Incumbent Foreign Minister Ishaq Dar was appointed as Deputy Prime Minister to allow Bilawal to become the top diplomat. Sources said Dar’s office is being set up in the Prime Minister’s Office and he will work from there after vacating the Foreign Office for Bilawal. According to sources, Dar was never comfortable as the foreign minister as he always wanted to see his favorite finance ministry. But Shahbaz and others in the PML-N wanted to keep him away. Nevertheless, he managed to convince the Prime Minister to appoint him as his deputy. As deputy PM, he could potentially oversee the government’s economic policies once again.
