Karachi: Pakistan People Party has taken a resignation from Ayaz Soomro to give a change to its Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari to contest by-elections.
Soomro, who was elected MNA from NA-204 Larkana, has quitted the seat on the directives of party leadership, and now Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the only son of former president Asif Ali Zardari, will contest by-elections on the seat.
NA-204 has been a PPP stronghold and was previously won by Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, Nusrat Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto.
The decision was reportedly taken at a party meeting yesterday in Naudero.
Official announcement of this decision is likely to be made on December 27 on Benazir’s death anniversary.
According to reports, Soomro is likely to be made Adviser to CM Sindh on legal affairs.
