The MQM was a dagger to the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM)-led federal government over the issue of delimitation of constituencies in Sindh ahead of the Sindh Local Government (LG) elections. The MQM, on the other hand, had earlier indicated its exit from the coalition with the PDM-led federal government.

Furthermore, the MQM rejected the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) decision to hold Sindh local government (LG) elections on 15 January.

MQM leaders including Senator Faisal Sabzwari, former Law Minister Farooq Naseem, Farooq Sattar and others held a press conference. Sabzwari said that the party is not fighting for itself but for the people of Karachi. “The number of seats earmarked for Korangi Town is not in proportion to the population of the area,” he said.

Sabzwari mocked political opponents, saying that those who wanted early elections were in a hurry to see themselves in the mayor’s seat, adding that it would do them no good. “We will make every effort for a transparent delimitation,” he said. He said none of them went to court against the delimitation.

Mr Naseem said that as many as 30,000 union councils were formed in the area where the MQM did not have public support, the population of UC was wrongly counted. “When we went to the Supreme Court against this issue, we were ordered to consult the ECP,” he said. It would be unconstitutional to hold elections on time as the ECP did not take our opinion on the matter, he said.

Mr. Sattar said that the Sindh government has accepted the inaccuracies in the delimitation. “Our press conference is not contempt of court,” he said.

The Sindh government, earlier today, wrote a letter to the ECP to delay the LG election but the ECP again rejected the request.
