The Sindh Chief Minister, Syed Murad Ali Shah, and the Leader of Opposition in the dissolved Sindh Assembly, Rana Ansar, will have a meeting today to discuss the formation of a caretaker government in the province.
During the meeting, both the government and opposition will propose names for the caretaker chief minister position.
Previously, Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah and opposition leader Rana Ansar did not suggest any names for the caretaker chief minister.
CM Shah expressed hope that the caretaker chief minister will be decided through consensus.
According to the Constitution, the outgoing chief minister and the opposition leader are required to suggest three names each for the caretaker CM.
If they cannot reach a decision, a committee consisting of six members from the outgoing assembly, with equal representation from the treasury and opposition, will be formed by the speaker.
The CM and opposition leader will each nominate two candidates to the committee, which will have three days to reach a consensus on one name.
If a deadlock persists, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) will announce the name of the caretaker chief minister within the next two days.
