‘Will count each and every seat’: Murad Shah says PPP seats were decreased

PPP’s candidate for chief minister of Sindh, Murad Ali Shah, has claimed that the party’s seats were diluted.

Speaking to reporters outside the Sindh Assembly, Murad said he had initially predicted the PPP would win 90-to-95 seats, however, that was not the case.

He said he would “count each and every seat” and let people know where PPP won and lost.

He expressed gratitude over the commencement of the Sindh Assembly, adding that the next three days were important due to the oath-taking ceremony of the MPAs and the elections for the assembly speaker and the provincial chief minister.
