KARACHI (92 News) – The appointment of all advisers and special assistants of the federal government including Sartaj Aziz has been challenged in the Sindh High Court.

The petitioner Pakistan People’s Party leader Qadir Khan Mandukhel submitted in the petition that the appointments of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s advisers Sartaj Aziz, Irfan Siddiqui, Ameer Muqam, Jam Mashooq, Tariq Fatemi, Musadiq Malik and Muftah Ismail is a violation of the law.

The petitioner stated that the law only allows the prime minister to have five special assistants.

The lawyer said that the premier has appointed advisors and special assistants more than capacity and given them the status and privileges of the ministers.
