Later, he was made the regulation minister. In November 2015 he was assigned the local weather change ministry and in 2016 was given the extra portfolio of the regulation ministry. Like all different cupboard members, he ceased to carry the workplace in July 2017 when it stood disbanded following the Supreme Courtroom-imposed disqualification of Nawaz Sharif within the Panama case. The brand new premier inducted him because the regulation minister as soon as once more.
Zahid Hamid had served because the regulation minister of Pervez Musharraf for which he all the time provoked taunts and boos from the PML-N detractors.
