KARACHI – Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Syed Murad Ali Shah on Monday elected as chief minister of Sindh for the third time in a row. 

Shah secured 112 votes while MQM-P’s Ali Khurshidi got only 36 votes as the Sindh Assembly session was presided over by the newly-elected Owais Qadir Shah. 

Meanwhile, the PTI-backed candidates and Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) boycotted the Sindh Assembly session, saying public mandate was stolen in the Feb 8 general elections.

Murad Ali Shah has served twice as Sindh's chief minister from 2016 to 2018 and then from 2018 to 2023.

The provincial assembly in the country's second-largest region includes lawmakers of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.  

PTI and Jamaat-i-Islami announced boycotting the proceedings of the Chief Minister’s election in the Sindh Assembly.

In a similar development, the Punjab Assembly is also set to pick a new Chief Minister. Maryam Nawaz is set to make history there as first woman Chief Minister in the country's history.
