PPP’s Murad Ali Shah was elected the chief minister of Sindh for the third term on Monday. He secured the maximum 112 votes.

This marks the PPP’s government for the fourth time in the province.

The polling for the Sindh CM was set to begin at 2:00pm, according to the schedule announced by Sindh Assembly Speaker Owais Qadir Shah.

However, the session began after around a 40-minute delay.

Shah was up against Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) candidate Ali Khurshidi who ended up with 36 votes amid a boycott by the PTI and the JI.

Meanwhile, MPAs of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and the Jamaat-e-Islami have announced that they would boycott the proceedings for the Sindh CM’s election.

Ghulam Qadir Chandio, Saleh Shah, and Naeem Kharal submitted the nomination papers to the assembly on behalf of Murad Ali Shah.
