After the oath-taking ceremony, all PPP lawmakers were greeted with slogans of “Jiye Bhutto” and thumping of desks when they approached the rostrum to sign the roll.
The Assembly adopted the resolutions after the Speaker Syed Muzaffar Hussain Shah relaxed rules under Rule 211 amidst cheers and ear-splitting slogans of “Zinda Hai Bhutto Zinda Hai” and “Ab Raj Karegi Benazir” by PPP activists and supporters.
At the outset, the house offered fateha for Ms Benazir Bhutto.
After the oath-taking ceremony, Syed Qaim Ali Shah, who was sitting on the seat reserved for the Leader of the House, sought permission to move a resolution after the relaxation of rules.
The first resolution read: “This Assembly resolves and recommends to the Government of Sindh to approach the Federal Government to term the death of ‘Quaid-i-Awam Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto’, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, a ‘judicial murder’ and tender an apology to the nation for the loss of this great leader.”
The second resolution said: “This August House recommends to the Government of Sindh to approach the Federal Government to get the tragic assassination of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto probed through the United Nations to unearth her actual assassins.”
The third resolution, moved by Tarique Masood Arain, read: “This Assembly offers to the great international leader Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto, and in recognition of her services and sacrifices for the nation, recommends to the Government of Sindh to rename district Nawabshah as District Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto.”
The resolutions were moved separately by Syed Qaim Al Shah, Pir Mazhar-ul-Haq and Nisar Ahmad Khuhro. The Speaker, after merging the three resolutions, put them to vote. The assembly adopted all three resolutions unanimously.
Pakistan People’s Party candidates Nisar Ahmad Khuhro and Shehla Raza were elected unopposed as Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the Sindh Assembly on Sunday. No other candidate had filed nomination papers for the posts.
Outgoing Speaker Syed Muzaffar Hussain Shah scrutinised the candidates’ papers and declared them valid.
For the office of Speaker, four nomination papers were filed proposed by Haji Muawwar Ali Abbasi, Shama Mithani, Murad Ali Shah and Ayaz Soomro and seconded by Ahmad Ali Shah, Mukesh Kumar, Dr Sikander Mandhro and Muzaffar Ali Shujra.
Two nominations were filed for the post of Deputy Speaker proposed by Shazia Marri and Fayyaz Butt and seconded by Salim Khurshid Khokhar and Dr Nasrullah Baloch.
Syed Muzaffar Shah officially announced on 7 April 2008, Monday that Mr. Nisar Ahmed Khuhro and Mrs. Shehla Raza, elected as Speaker and Deputy Speaker (Un-opposed).
Before administering the oath to the Speaker-elect, Syed Muzaffar Shah emphasised the need for inculcating the spirit of tolerance for democracy to succeed. “We are at the crossroads of history and nothing will be better than an approach of reconciliation for democracy.”
Syed Muzaffar Hussain Shah administered the oath to Mr Khuhro, who then swore in Deputy Speaker Shahla Raza.
Several Mmembers greeted the Speaker and Deputy Speaker on their unopposed election and assured them of their cooperation. They urged them to protect the minority in the House.
The assembly will meet again at 5.30 p.m. for ascertainment of the leader of house.
