Result of Pakistan Election 2008 : Sindh Assembly (Tentative)

By Ali Yar Khan • Feb 17th, 2008 • Category: Pakistan Vote'08, Politics • No Responses

Sindh Province is the second most important province after Punjab as far as the government formation is concerned. Sindh’s election situation is pretty much interesting as MQM is still solid in Karachi, while PML-Q has lost whatever support it enjoyed in the rural and urban areas of Sindh, and the party which intends to take Sindh Province by storm is Pakistan People’s Party.

PPP, the party of Benazir Bhutto, which was also founded by a Sindhi, the father of Benazir Bhutto, Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto is all set to clean sweep the Sindh Assembly and the national assembly seats from this province. There are two main reasons for this. First the tremendous sympathy vote, the PPP has bagged after the ghastly slaying of Benazir Bhutto some weeks ago, and secondly the dismal performance of PML-Q at provincial and national front, and the slanderous approach of PML-Q towards the PPP leaders. PML-N’s role in Sindh is minimal, but they would be doing well after coordinating with PPP.

Sindh contributes 75 seats to the national assembly with 61 earmarked for general seats and 14 for theĀ  women. From these 75 seats, PPP is expected to win some 40 seats ,while the rest would be distributed among MQM, PML-Q and others.

Sindh Provincial Assembly has got 168 seats with 130 general and 29 for women. PPP would also clean sweep the Sindh Assembly with expectation of taking 100+ seats, while the rest will be shared by MQM, PML-Q and others.
