Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Monday appointed Ayaz Sadiq as the new Minister for Law and Justice after the resignation of Azam Nazeer Tarar, who stepped down citing personal reasons.
According to the notification issued by the Cabinet Division, Ayaz Sadiq has been given the portfolio of law and justice in addition to his duties as minister for economic affairs.
Azam Nazeer Tarar, before tendering his resignation, gave his reservations a vent in a tweet.
“I am unhappy that a small group of people raised slogans against state institutions at the Asma Jahangir conference,” the former law minister said in a Twitter post.
He said that the individuals engaged in emotional sloganeering had forgotten about the struggles and sacrifices of state institutions and government measures. Everyone here wants Pakistan to be robust and vigorous, he added.
In his resignation addressed to President Pakistan Dr. Arif Alvi on 24th October 2022, Azam Tarar said: “I have the great honor and privilege to serve my country as the federal minister for law and justice under the able leadership of Mian Mohammed Shehbaz Shareef.”
“However, due to personal reasons, I am unable to discharge my duties as the federal minister,” he added.
