Anwaarul Haq Kakar, a Senator from the Balochistan Awami Party, has been chosen as the interim Prime Minister of Pakistan. This decision was reached after a meeting between Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and outgoing Opposition Leader Raja Riaz. The Prime Minister’s Office has sent a recommendation to President Alvi regarding Kakar’s appointment. Riaz confirmed the decision in a media interview, stating that they had agreed on Kakar as the caretaker PM. He also mentioned that Kakar would take oath as the head of the interim set-up the following day. Kakar previously served as the parliamentary leader for the Balochistan Awami Party in the Senate. The process for selecting the caretaker PM began after the National Assembly was dissolved prematurely on August 9. Discussions and consultations between PM Shehbaz and Riaz took place in order to finalize the appointment. It was reported that Riaz was insisting on his own candidate, Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani, while PM Shehbaz was suggesting former finance minister Ishaq Dar or former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi. However, Kakar’s appointment as the interim Prime Minister was ultimately agreed upon.
