Economist Sakib Sherani resigned on Saturday from the Economic Advisory Council. He is the fourth member to do so.

The 18-member Economic Advisory Council chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan now only has 14 members.

Speaking to SAMAA TV, Sherani said his reasons for resigning are personal. I stopped my business to avoid conflicts of interest after joining the council, he said. He said it was not feasible for him to remain voluntarily unemployed any longer.
