Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif has sent a summary of the appointment of MQM leader Nasreen Jalil as Governor Sindh to the President.

Nasreen Jalil will take oath as the 31st Governor Sindh after approval from President Dr. Arif Alvi.

She has served as a Senator from March 2012 to March 2018.

She has been the chairperson of several committees as well. 

Previously, she also served as the Deputy Mayor of Karachi.

Apart from being the Deputy Convener of MQM, she also played the role of a dynamic activist and was also jailed for some time.

She would be the third female governor in the history of Pakistan. 

Begum Raana Liaquat Ali Khan was the first female governor who served as the Sindh governor from 1973 to 1976.

Dr. Shama Khalid was the second female to serve as the governor. She was governor of Gilgit-Baltistan from March-September 2010.

Nasreen Jalil was born in Lahore on February 22, 1944. Her father Zafarul Hassan was the Deputy Commissioner of Lahore during the British rule and later held several important posts.

The office of the Sindh governor fell vacant on April 12 after PTI leader Imran Ismail tendered his resignation.
