New caretaker CM Sindh announced

KARACHI – Chief Minister (CM) Murad Ali Shah and Opposition leader in Sindh Assembly Khawaja Izharul Hassan on Thursday decided to appoint former Chief Secretary Sindh Fazal ur Rehman as the new caretaker CM Sindh.

Earlier they failed to arrive at consensus over the caretaker CM Sindh.

To resolve the issue, both leaders (CM and opposition leader) were left with few hours and if both aforementioned figures fail to make nominee today, the matter would be forwarded to parliamentary committee (Thursday) night after 12 AM.

After a single meeting between both leaders, deadlock still persists over the unsolved riddle of caretaker CM Sindh.

Taking the notice of issue, Speaker Sindh assembly - Agha Siraj Durrani - has declared if deadlock persists, after 12 AM, a parliamentary committee would be formed to resolve the conundrum.

According to election Act 2018, If both CM and opposition leader could not nominate a name then matter would be decided by parliamentary committee and if parliamentary committee also fail in resolving the issue then Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) would nominate a name for caretaker CM.
