Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chief Bilawal Bhutto is likely to be made the next foreign minister in the new government in Pakistan. Imran Khan was removed from the post of Prime Minister through a no-confidence motion in the National Assembly, the lower house of Parliament, late on Saturday night.

Geo News reported that the positions of the Prime Minister and the President are important, while the question of who will be the Foreign Minister in the new government is also important as the joint opposition parties have repeatedly targeted the Imran Khan government for its misguided foreign policy. According to a report, PPP chief Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari may be the next foreign minister.

Former President Ali Bhutto’s Grandson

Bilawal, 33, an Oxford University student, told The Independent Urdu that the party would decide on his appointment as the new foreign minister. Bilawal Bhutto is the son of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto and former President Asif Ali Zardari. He is the grandson of former President and Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.


Criticizing Khan’s leadership, Bilawal said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government has made the Ministry of External Affairs and the National Security Council (NSC) controversial. During the debate on the no-confidence motion against the Imran Khan government in the National Assembly on Saturday, Bilawal lashed out at Khan’s foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and questioned why he was not present at the meeting of the National Security Committee.
