PESHAWAR:Former Justice Dost Mohammad Khan took oath on Wednesday as the caretaker chief minister of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P). In a simple ceremony, Governor Iqbal Zafar Jhagra administered the oath. CM Dost is the sixth caretaker and the 30th chief minister of K-P. “We will try to give maximum relief to the public during our short stint in the government,” the interim CM said in his brief talk to the media.

The caretaker chief minister said that the interim setup might face a few issues as the former government did not pass the budget.

CM Dost further went on to say that he will do his best to ensure free and fair general elections. “The cabinet will be a short one and people will be kept on merit. The mission given by the election commission and the Constitution will be fulfilled.”

The outgoing chief minister Pervez Khattak also attended the oath taking ceremony along with former speaker K-P Assembly Asad Qaiser, K-P police Chief Salahuddin Mehsud, Inspector-General Frontier Constabulary Liaquat Ali Khan.

Leaders of political parties including Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl provincial chief Maulana Gul Naseeb, Awami National Party’s Sardar Hussain Babak, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz provincial chief Amir Muqam and Pakistan People’s Party Syed Zahir Shah also attended the ceremony.
