The Sindh Assembly on Friday unanimously passed Sindh Local Government (Amendment) Bill, 2021.
Sindh Minister for Local Government Syed Nasir Hussian Shah presented the bill in the provincial assembly.
The bill was moved in the assembly after Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari approved the new LG system.
Under the new bill, District Councils and Municipal Corporations (DMCs) will be abolished in Karachi and a town system would be restored in each division of the province. Karachi will be divided into more than 25 towns under the new LG system, according to a bill.
The new local government system will give more powers to elected mayor and union council chairman, according to a draft.
