    DAWN News: Nazims’ reign ends in three provinces

    ISLAMABAD: The local government system became a provincial subject after midnight on Thursday.

    Provinces have decided to retain the system after making some amendments required in their jurisdictions.

    Except in Sindh, all district Nazims will stop functioning from Jan 1 and administrators from the bureaucracy will be appointed to serve in their place till fresh LB elections are held.

    President Asif Ali Zardari, on the advice of Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani, deleted laws concerning local governments from the sixth schedule of the Constitution.

    Deletion of Balochistan Local Government Ordinance, 2001 (XVIII of 2001), North West Frontier Province Local Government Ordinance, 2001 (XIV of 2001), Punjab Local Government Ordinance, 2001 (XIII of 2001) and Sindh Local Government Ordinance, 2001 (XXVI of 2001) allowed the provinces to make changes in the local government laws.

    ..continued..



  • This way PPP will lose support of MQM as they will not be happy at all. The other three Punjab, Pakhtoonkhawa and Baluchistan will have reservations too...



  • Actually MQM is holding Karachi hostage on gun point. So it can get away with anything it likes and can blackmail every federal govt.



  • The local government has only worked in sindh. It hasn't really given results in other provinces.

    @doctor

    Since no other party can really win elections in Karachi, so they accuse it for holding Karachi at gunpoint. Even if the MQM hadn't rigged the previous election they still would have won them.

    @Shock: That's quite a bold statement.
