Sindh Chief Minister-designate Justice (retd) Maqbool Baqar has said that holding timely elections will be the top priority of the caretaker setup.

The former chief justice of the Sindh High Court resolved that he would not condone any form of misappropriation or corruption during his tenure as the caretaker CM.

He made it clear that the election will be according to the constitution and law.

Baqar said that it is the interim setup’s responsibility to conduct free and fair elections, while the Election Commission is responsible for delimitation in which the caretaker government will lend its support to the electoral body.

The CM-designate said that the caretaker cabinet will be formed after he assumed charge and that the development projects in the province will continue as usual.

On August 11, Sindh Assembly was dissolved after Governor Sindh signed the summary forwarded by outgoing Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah.
