MQM, PTI Speed up Efforts to Bring New Opposition Leader


Karachi (September 26, 2017): The move to bring new opposition leader in National Assembly has gained momentum as Muttehda Qaumi Movement and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) delegation met twice in a week to give final shape.

The MQM-Pakistan Chief Farooq Sattar, talking to media after meeting with PTI Vice President Shah Mehmood Qureshi, expressed apprehension that the PPP and PML-N secret deal would make the next election suspicious.

“PPP has protected the personal interests in national assembly and  its secret deal with PML-N made the next election transparency doubtful,” he alleged.

Talking on the occasion Qureshi said that a big decision would be taken in coming days as MQM and PTI has the same stance on national issues.

Commenting on election results, Shah mentioned that no political party had accepted any election results since 1970 and it was feared that a secret deal can be struck in shape of interim set-up before next election.

Earlier a delegation of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), including Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Asad Umar, Firdous Shamim among others, met with the leaders of Muttahida Quami Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) on Tuesday.

The leaders met at MQM’s temporary headquarters in Bahadurabad.

The leaders of the two parties mulled over the possibility of replacing Pakistan Peoples Party stalwart Khursheed Shah as the leader of opposition in the National Assembly, before the caretaker government steps in ahead of 2018 General Elections.

On September 23, The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) agreed that there should be a new leader of the opposition in the National Assembly.

PTI Vice President Shah Mehmood Qureshi spoke with MQM-P leader Dr Farooq Sattar on the phone and the two leaders decided to meet soon.

A PTI delegation headed by Qureshi and including Asad Umer, Imran Ismail and Firdous Naqvi will meet MQM-P leaders on September 26.
