Murad Ali Shah becomes Chief Minister Sindh for third time

Monday saw the election of Syed Murad Ali Shah as the chief minister of Sindh, following his dominating lead over Ali Khurshidi of the MQM-P.

For the third time, Murad, the province’s chief executive, received 112 votes to Khurshidi’s 36. 148 votes were cast throughout the polling process.

PTI-aligned MPAs screamed anti-election slogans, and lawmakers from the JI and PTI abstained from voting.

Following the reading of the polling procedure’s guidelines by recently elected speaker Syed Owais Qadir Shah, the election for the next chief minister got underway earlier.

In the Sindh Assembly, Owais Shah of the PPP took over as speaker on Sunday, and Anthony Naveed emerged victorious in the deputy speaker seat with a massive majority.

With 111 votes, Shah got more than the 36 that Sofia Saeed, the candidate for the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P), received. There were 157 provincial assembly members present when the voting was conducted.

On Saturday, 147 newly elected members of the Sindh Assembly swore in to their positions.

According to the results released by the Election Commission of Pakistan, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) secured an amazing 84 seats, making it the clear front-runner in the province.

With 28 seats, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) lagged behind.
14 seats were won by independent candidates, including those connected to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). The Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA) and Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) each received two seats.

Elected members of the GDA, JI, and independents endorsed by the PTI chose not to attend the oath-taking event due to the parties’ decision to boycott the proceedings, with the exception of the PPP and MQM-P.
