Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif has consulted with the allied parties for the formation of his cabinet.

Sources said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz will get 12 ministers, Pakistan People’s Party seven, JUI-F four, MQM-P two ministries, whereas BNP-Mengal, ANP, Jamhoori Watan Party and Balochistan Awami Party will also be rendered cabinet portfolios.

“We will move forward with the spirit which has led us to this place,” Shehbaz said.

“We will move ahead with the spirit of unity, consultation and cooperation to solve problems and fulfill promises,” Shehbaz Sharif said.

According to sources, PML-N is trying to convince PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari to accept their offer.
