Federal Minister for Finance, Revenue and Economic Affairs Asad Umar has written letters to all provincial chief ministers for the reconstitution of the National Finance Commission (NFC).

The NFC is required to be set up at intervals not exceeding five years as required under Clause (1) of the Article 160 of the constitution. The federal finance minister and the finance ministers of the provinces are the statutory members of the NFC. It is customary to include one non-statutory member from each province.

The letters state that after the July 25 general election, new governments are in place both at the federal and provincial levels, necessitating re-confirmation of non-statutory members from the provinces. The finance minister has asked the provincial chief ministers to either reconfirm the earlier nominated members or intimate the change in the nomination to enable the federal government to notify the NFC.

Letters have been dispatched to Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar, Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, Khyber Pakhtunkhua Chief Minister Mahmood Khan and Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan.
