PPP to bag slot of Mayor in Karachi: CM Murad



Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has once again reiterated his stance that the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), being the single largest party that emerged in local bodies elections in Karachi, will take over the slot of the Mayor by setting aside the cries and claims of a `self-claimant’.

He made these remarks while talking to the media persons at the KMC Mega Sports event organized at Fuwara Chowk. Sindh Governor Mohammed Kamran Khan Tessori, Minister Information Sharjeel Inam Memon, Advisor law Murtaza Wahab and others were also present on the occasion.

Replying to a question, The CM said it was loud and clear that PPP would bag the slot of Mayor in Karachi.

“We [the PPP] are a majority party and our candidate for the slot of mayor would easily be elected by the KMC council,” he said and giving an oblique reference to Jamaat Islami’s Candidate Naeem Rehman, added that his cries, claims, and allegations have no foundation and would prove to be the bubbles of hot air.

The CM urged the Election Commission of Pakistan to expedite the process of conducting the election on the local bodies’ seats where it had been postponed and declare the results of the seats which have been challenged or withheld so that the final round of election for the seats of chairmen and mayors could be finalized.
