ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) on Sunday announced new leadership for Sindh province, appointing Ameer Bux Bhutto, the son of Mumtaz Bhutto, as the new president.

Ameer Bux Bhutto joined the PTI last year after the merger of the Sindh National Front, the party of Mumtaz Bhutto, with PTI.

Mr Ameer has been made Sindh PTI President in place of PTI leader Arif Alvi.

The PTI also replaced the party’s Sindh’s General Secretary Iftikhar Soomro, appointing MPA Haleem Adil Sheikh as the new General Secretary of the party.

Mr Sheikh, a former leader of PML-Q, has been active in PTI for the last many years and has also played an active role in the PTI’s 2014 sit-in in Islamabad.

In another change in the Sindh leadership, the PTI made Khurram Sher Zaman the Karachi president of the party, a position earlier held by Imran Ismail, the incumbent governor of Sindh.

A PTI statement said that these appointments had been made with the approval of party head and Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Speaking to Dawn, newly-elected General Secretary of PTI Sindh Haleem Adil Sheikh said that within three months, he would re-organise the party in the province.

He said that his main objective was to win the maximum number of seats in the next local government elections.
