Imran nominates Imran Ismail for Sindh governor


ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Saturday finalised the name of Imran Ismail as the Governor of Sindh after party chairman Imran Khan formally sanctioned his name.

“After God, I am thankful to Imran Khan for being nominated the governor,” Ismail said following the announcement. “I have been given a massive responsibility. I will take all the parties together and move forward.”

Ismail said that the PTI and MQM-led opposition in Sindh will field their candidates for all the major positions, including the chief minister, speaker and deputy speaker.

Currently, the post of Sindh governor lies vacant following resignation by Mohammad Zubair.

Ismail, who is considered a close affiliate of Imran, had also won the elections in Sindh Assembly constituency PS-111 Karachi.

A day earlier, the PTI nominated Asad Qaiser as speaker of the National Assembly, and Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar as governor of Punjab. Prior to that it named Mehmood Khan as the chief minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

However, the party is yet to nominate deputy speaker in the National Assembly and Punjab chief minister.
