Election tribunal rejects Khaqan Abbasi's nomination papers from NA-57

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will be heading the Economic Coordination Committee of the Cabinet instead of its present chairman Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, media outfits quoted sources.
The committee includes ministers of communications, petroleum, commerce, industries and production, information, law, planning, railways, food and power and water.
However, the water and power ministry was amended by the new premier creating a ministry of energy that will include earlier portfolios of water and power and petroleum and natural resources.
The prime minister, who held the portfolio of petroleum and natural resources ministry in the previous cabinet of Nawaz Sharif, will head the new power ministry.
