Journalist Fahd Husain has been appointed a special assistant to PM Shehbaz Sharif.
The cabinet division on Saturday notified the senior journalist’s appointment as the SAPM.
The notification for Husain’s appointment stated: “The prime minister, in terms of rule 4(6) of Rules of Business, 1973, has been pleased to appoint Syed Fahd Husain as special assistant to the prime minister with the status of federal minister, with immediate effect.”
