KARACHI, Dec 9,2022- MQM Pakistan has agreed to join the Sindh government, and finalises names for Sindh cabinet. However, some members of the coordination committee are still unhappy with this decision.

MQM Pakistan will also be given the post of an adviser and a special assistant in the Sindh cabinet in the second phase.
MQM Pakistan convener Dr. Khalid Maqbool has approved the names of the ministers.
