Following the February 8 general elections, President Asif Ali Zardari has sanctioned the appointment of governors for Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Balochistan, as part of a power-sharing agreement among coalition parties, primarily led by the PML-N. Sardar Saleem Haider, Faisal Karim Kundi, and Sardar Jafar Khan Mandokhail have been selected as governors for Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Balochistan, respectively.

While Haider and Kundi are affiliated with the PPP, Mandokhail represents the PML-N’s Balochistan chapter. The appointments come as replacements for the outgoing governors and align with the coalition’s distribution of key governmental roles.

However, attention has now shifted to Sindh, where Kamran Tessori holds the governorship. Both the PPP and PML-N have expressed reservations over Tessori’s tenure, but the MQM-P’s support to the coalition government has prevented immediate action. Despite speculations and desires for a change, the MQM-P has reiterated its preference for Tessori to continue as governor.

President Zardari reportedly holds concerns over Tessori’s actions during the caretaker government period before the elections, signaling the need for a replacement. Nonetheless, the PML-N has not made any public statements regarding the matter, underscoring the complexity of inter-party dynamics within the coalition government.
