Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf swore in 24 members of Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani's cabinet on Monday, six weeks after opposition parties won a general election.

Eleven of the new ministers were from assassinated former prime minister Benazir Bhutto's party, which won the most seats in the election and nine were from its main coalition ally, the party of another former prime minister, Nawaz Sharif.

Of the other four, one was an independent member of parliament and three were from two smaller parties joining the coalition.
