KARACHI: Having repealed the Sindh Local Government Act last week and restored the 1979 municipal system, the Sindh government on Wednesday issued the notification to formally revive the old system for governing cities, Express News reported.
Sindh Local Bodies Minister Agha Siraj Durrani said that the Karachi Municipal Corporation and district councils in the province have been restored, Radio Pakistan reported.
Durrani said that the local government institutions established under Peoples Local Government Act have been abolished.
Last week, the ruling party MPAs voted back in the 1979 municipal set-up since the Muttahida Qaumi Movement had walked out as a coalition partner.
The acting governor Nisar Khuhro signed the new bill in to law.
Immediately afterwards a flurry of transfers and postings had started with the KMC administrator among the ones to get the axe.
