Iqbal replaces Dar in CCI

ISLAMABAD: Planning and Reforms Minister Ahsan Iqbal has replaced Finance Minister Ishaq Dar in Council of Common Interests (CCI), said a notification issued on Monday.
According to the notification, the seat of Ishaq Dar, who has been in London for around two weeks for medical treatment, has been replaced by Ahsan Iqbal.
Iqbal also holds the portfolio of the Ministry of Interior.
At present, Dar is facing a corruption case filed by the National Accountability Bureau in light of the Supreme Court’s judgment in the Panama Papers case.
After Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi took office in August this year, he replaced Dar’s chairmanship of the Economic Coordination Committee of the Cabinet with himself.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will chair the meeting of CCI which will be attended by the four provincial chief ministers as well as the federal ministers for inter-provincial coordination, industries and production, and finance.
