The new Chief Minister of Sindh, Justice (Retd) Maqbool Baqar, stated that the main responsibility of the caretaker government is to ensure that elections are conducted in a timely and transparent manner. He mentioned that the caretaker government will provide any necessary assistance to the Election Commission of Pakistan for this purpose. Baqar was appointed as the interim Sindh Chief Minister after his notification was approved by Governor Kamran Tessori. The appointment was based on a consensus reached between the previous Chief Minister, Murad Ali Shah, and the outgoing Leader of the Opposition. Baqar clarified that his focus as Chief Minister would not solely be on accountability, but he would ensure that all endeavors are conducted with integrity. He emphasized the importance of curbing corruption in all forms. Baqar also mentioned that provincial governments should cooperate with accountability institutions. When asked about the potential members of the caretaker cabinet, Baqar stated that he desires individuals of integrity, dedication, and commitment who genuinely care about the welfare of the public. He also mentioned that the scheduling of elections falls under the jurisdiction of the Election Commission, and the caretaker government does not have the authority to make such decisions. Justice Baqar, a retired Supreme Court judge, confirmed his appointment on a private TV channel before the formal announcement. He has previously served as the Chief Justice of the Sindh High Court and was the target of a deadly bomb attack in June 2013.
