Parliament to vote on ministerial reappointments

The opposition-majority parliament will vote on the appointment of the new Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture Dr Mariyam Zulfa, and Minister of Transport and Communication, Adil Saleem, later this month.

The two ministers were appointed during a ministerial shuffle prompted by parliament’s decision not to endorse seven members of cabinet following their en masse resignation in July 2010.

Haveeru reported that the Parliament Secretariat will present a committee’s evaluation report on the appointments on March 21.
