Karachi: Pakistan Peoples Party MNA Ayaz Soomro on Thursday resigned from NA 204 constituency to vacate seat for Bilawal Bhutto to contest from here.
Ayaz Soomro is likely to become Adviser to Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah as a reward for his sacrifice.
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.
Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto would practically take part in politics after contesting by-polls for the seat Soomro has left.
After reaching required age for the membership of the National Assembly, Bilawal has turned 24 this year and is likely to become lawmaker for the first time. (Online)
