PPP likely to form government in Sindh province

Islamabad, May 13 (IANS) The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has emerged as the majority party in Sindh and now looks set to form the government in the province on its own, a media report said.

The daily Dawn cited unofficial results which showed the party has got 70 of the 130 general seats.

The leadership of the Sindh PPP is likely to meet in Karachi Tuesday for consultations on probable candidates for the posts of the leader of the house, the speaker and the deputy speaker.

The party may obtain support of independents or likeminded smaller groups for effective governance in the province, the media report said.

Though the PPP may have done well in Sindh, it has fared poorly in other provinces and has even been relegated to the third spot in the National Assembly.

Elections to the National Assembly and the provincial assemblies were held Saturday, when over 60 percent voters defied the Taliban and bombings to exercise their franchise.
