KARACHI: The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) on Tuesday secured the signatures of 40 Sindh assembly members to back the nomination of Syed Sardar Ahmed as the leader of the Opposition, Express News reported.

The nomination request was been submitted to the speaker of Sindh Assembly, who accepted it and issued a notification in this regard.

The MQM had last month nominated Syed Sardar Ahmed as the opposition leader after they quit the Pakistan Peoples Party led coalition government in Sindh. However, at the time, the government had not allotted them opposition seats.

The move comes after Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad accepted resignations of MQM ministers on Tuesday morning.

    Ten days opposition! What a joke! This move will be challenged in the court.

    Time has changed. A former Chief Secretary of Sindh who has always obeyed the orders of Chief Minister during his tenure has now become the opposition leader of Sindh Assembly.

    I am just trying to figure out Mr. Sardar Ahmed’s mood when he was Chief Secretary of Sindh and after becoming opposition leader of Sindh Assembly. What a contrast.

    A complete drama to hijack caretaker setup. A fake opposition is installed in Sindh. True democracy is the best revenge of PPP-MQM duo from people!!. Secondly, Ony 40 MQM members’ signed to nominate Mr. Sardar Ahmed as opposition leader raises eye brows, why not all 52 MPA of MQM? Is there any forward block in making in MQM?
