Murad Ali Shah Sworn In As Sindh CM Thrice

Murad Ali Shah, a prominent leader of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), was sworn in as the Chief Minister of Sindh for the third consecutive term on Tuesday. The oath-taking ceremony was administered by Sindh Governor Kamran Tessori and witnessed by members of the outgoing caretaker provincial government, PPP leaders, and other dignitaries.

A day prior to the swearing-in, Shah secured his position as the Chief Minister of Sindh for the third time by garnering 112 votes in the Sindh Assembly. In contrast, Ali Khurshidi from the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) received only 36 votes. The session of the Sindh Assembly was presided over by the newly-elected Owais Qadir Shah.

It’s noteworthy that the PTI-backed candidates and Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chose to boycott the Sindh Assembly session, expressing their contention that the public mandate had been allegedly stolen during the general elections held on February 8.

Murad Ali Shah has previously held the position of Sindh’s Chief Minister twice, serving from 2016 to 2018 and then from 2018 to 2023. In the 2024 elections, he secured victory from PS-77 by obtaining 66,100 votes, while his rival candidate managed to secure a mere 6,000 votes. Shah’s consistent electoral success and the mandate received reflect his ongoing political influence and support within the region.
