Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has reportedly decided to appoint Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry as his spokesperson in Nadeem Afzal Chan’s place.

According to reports, the minister will serve as the premier’s spokesperson in addition to managing his science and technology portfolio.
