The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has decided to make changes in Sindh cabinet and bring in a new chief minister for the province, replacing Syed Qaim Ali Shah.
According to a statement by party spokesperson Senator Farhatullah Babar, the decision was taken during a party meeting in Dubai on Sunday
Former President Asif Ali Zardari and PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari were present in the meeting along with CM Shah.
Bilawal is scheduled to return to Karachi in the next few days to meet party MPAs before finalising changes in Sindh cabinet, added the statement.
According to reports on social media, Syed Murad Ali Shah will take charge as the next provincial chief minister.
PPP’s top leadership flew to the UAE on Saturday evening to hold discussions with Zardari on extension in Rangers’ special powers, among other issues.
Shah became the chief minister Sindh for the first time during Benazir Bhutto’s first tenure in 1988. He held the same position later on from 2008-2013, and became Sindh CM for the third time again in 2013.
