Sindh Assembly Disbanded Following Chief Minister’s Recommendation

KARACHI: Sindh Governor Kamran Tessori has approved the dissolution of the Sindh Assembly based on the suggestion of Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah. The decision was made on Friday and follows the provisions outlined in Article 112(1) of the Constitution of Pakistan. The governor signed the summary after a meeting with the chief minister and his cabinet members including Sharjeel Memon, Nasir Hussain Shah, and Saeed Ghani.

The Sindh Assembly, like the National Assembly, was set to officially end its term on Saturday, August 12, since its inaugural sessions after the July 25 elections in 2018. According to the Constitution, if the assembly completes its term, the next general election would be held within 60 days. However, if the term is not completed, even by a single day, the elections would be held within 90 days.

Before the dissolution of the Sindh Assembly, both treasury and opposition lawmakers attended the last session and gave their farewell speeches. Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani chaired the session, and members from various political parties shared their reflections on the assembly’s five years. Some opposition members criticized government policies, while treasury members, including ministers, praised them.

During the session, Chief Minister Shah summarized his government’s performance over the past five years, highlighting their efforts in dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic, floods, development projects, government initiatives, and job creation in various sectors.
