Babar Awan and Fawad Chaudhry will take care of legal and constitutional matters, while Shahzad Akbar will take care of accountability and NAB cases. Sheikh Rashid will develop a strategy to deal with the media. A number of other senior ministers might also be added to the committee before it is notified.
