The Sindh Assembly has 168 seats and Murad Ali Shah needs at least 85 votes to clinch the coveted seat. Although the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has 91 seats, there are several members who are either estranged or are currently out of the country.

According to reports, PPP leaders Nadir Magsi, Hasnain Mirza, Ali Nawaz and Mir Hazar Khan Bijarani are estranged and are unlikely to vote for him, while Sarjeel Memon and Owais Muzaffar are out of the country.

Moreover, the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) has decided to nominate Khurram Sherzaman for the post, while the Muthaida Quami Movement (MQM) is also considering fielding its own candidate as well.
