The provincial assemblies of Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will dissolve at the stroke of midnight on Monday after completing their respective five-year terms.

The Law, Parliamentary Affairs and Human Rights Department of the KP government has already issued a notification in this regard.

Though the assemblies will cease to function from tomorrow, the respective chief ministers will continue to retain their chairs till appointments of caretaker chief ministers. Both the provinces will have to appoint caretaker chief ministers till May 31.

If the chief ministers and the respective leaders of the opposition could not agree on the names of a caretaker chief minister, the issue will be referred to parliamentary committee, comprising two members each from the treasury and opposition benches.

If the committee also fails to nominate an interim chief minister, the Election Commission of Pakistan will then decide the name of caretaker chief ministers.

Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, while addressing a farewell cabinet meeting, said it was a historic day today. “This is the triumph of the people of Sindh, who voted us to power and we served them to the best of our abilities,” he said.

He said that road network and construction of bridges on river Indus has connected almost all the districts of the province. Shah further said that the concept of public-private partnership (PPP) worked well in Sindh.
