PESHAWAR: The Awami National Party (ANP) has apologized for being part of the federal government.
ANP chief Asfandyar Wali Khan said that the priorities of Awami National Party are not the government but the people.
He said that he was grateful to the PPP and PML-N for inviting him to be a part of the government.
Asfandyar Wali Khan said that the country and the government are already facing difficulties, they do not want to create more problems, our priority from day one is not government posts, ANP priority is people, party organization and ideology.
It is pertinent to mention here that Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani has administered the oath to federal ministers and ministers of state, who will form the cabinet of newly elected Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.
The ceremony was scheduled to be held on Monday, but it transpired that President Arif Alvi had refused to administer the oath to the lawmakers, compelling the government to postpone the ceremony to 11am Tuesday.
