Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has created a new Ministry for Good Governance and termed it a move to improve governance.
In a move that highlights the tenuous, if not entirely severed, link between governance and this government, Prime Minister Gilani has created another new Federal Ministry.
"In order to ensure Clarity in Role, Integrated Service Delivery and Efficiency in Administering the Federal Administrative Function after implementation of the Eighteenth (18th) Amendment, restructuring has been done and a new Ministry for Good Governance has been created by the Prime Minister in Terms of Rule 3(2) of the Rules of Business, 1973," the statement issued by Prime Minister’s Secretariat said.
It was not clear how much additional expenses the exchequer will have to bear as a result of the decision taken at a time when the government claims to be trying to reduce expenses in view of the financial problems the country faces.
However, what is clear is that, the Government is busy creating jobs – for itself.
