Sindh Assembly dissolved ahead of general election
Karachi: The provincial Assembly of Sindh was dissolved tonight by Governor Ishrat-ul Ebad paving the way for the appointment of a caretaker arrangement in the province ahead of general elections in May.
The governor signed on the summary dissolving the assembly on the recommendations of Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah.
