Fawad Chaudhry becomes information and broadcasting minister for second time

Faisal Javed confirms Fawad Chaudhry's reappointment, congratulates him on Twitter

ISLAMABAD: Fawad Chaudhry has been given additional charge of the information ministry for a second time.

His reappointed as the federal information minister was confirmed by Standing Committee on Information and Broadcasting chairperson Senator Faisal Javed Khan on Twitter Thursday.

Senator Khan wrote a congratulatory note for Chaudhry and  wished him all the best.

The last time Chaudhry was given the portfolio for the information ministry was in August, 2018. The information ministry was, however, later taken from Chaudhry and he was handed the science and technology ministry.

After the Senate elections last month, Prime Minister Imran Khan made several changes to the cabinet and giving additional charge to Chaudhry of the information ministry was one of them.
