KARACHI: The Pakistan Peoples Party-led Sindh government inducted nine more ministers in its cabinet on Wednesday, Express News reported.

The new ministers took oath today at the Governor House. Governor Ishratul Ebad administered the oath in presence of Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah.

An advisor has also been added to the cabinet, while the new ministers include PPP’s Owais Muzaffar, Javaid Nagori, Jam Mehtab, Mukesh Chawla and Giyan Chand.

The Sindh government had previously held off from awarding ministries beyond a handful, hoping to use the cabinet seats as a bargaining chip to woo the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) to come over to the treasury benches as coalition partners.

However, when the MQM was not swayed, the PPP, which has simple majority in the assembly, decided to go ahead with appointing its own members to cabinet positions.
