Who is Anwar-ul-Haq Kakar: Senator Anwar-ul-Haq Kakar, a prominent politician from Balochistan, has been appointed as Pakistan’s next acting prime minister.
Kakar, a Balochistani politician who was elected to the Senate in 2018, has been quite active. Before being elected to the upper chamber, he worked as the province government’s spokesperson.
Kakar is well-known as a great intellectual in the nation, despite his involvement in politics, according to veteran anchorperson Hamid Mir for Geo News.
Mir claimed that because the Baloch Awami Party (BAP) politician is of the Pashtun Kakar clan, he speaks for both Pashtuns and Balochs.
“The senator also enjoys good relations with the mainstream political parties, including PML-N and PPP.”
According to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office on Saturday, the MP was chosen to serve as the 8th interim leader of the government.
A summary to this effect has been authorised by President Arif Alvi. The decision was reached following a second round of discussions between Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Raja Riaz.
It should be recalled that the PML-N and PPP had both suggested that a politician might be chosen for the coveted position.
The political parties that make up the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) alliance have stressed the importance of maintaining economic policies and initiatives started by outgoing Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif during the transition of power.
Additionally, Kakar and his party enjoyed close relations with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) throughout its rule, and Imran Khan frequently consulted Kakar on Balochistan-related issues. BAP received criticism from PML-N frequently as a result of this.
However, PTI criticised the party after it switched sides.
