MQM awaits SC verdict to finalise strategy

ISLAMABAD - Although Muttahida Qaumi Movement has reached on no final consensus about future strategy, yet MQM, soon after the issuance of interim order regarding delimitation of Karachi constituencies, has started serious contemplation over the matter with the help of its legal experts.
MQM with its legal experts is devising strategy on the issue of delimitation of constituencies, and if needed it might seek support of ruling party PPP, MQM spokesman Wasay Jalil shared with TheNation.
Muttahida will wait for final verdict by Supreme Court (SC) on this matter as in the wake of that any final strategy would be made. A couple of days before, in the wake of Supreme Court (SC) calling for the delimitation of new constituencies in Karachi, Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain had called the court’s remarks “unconstitutional” and “undemocratic”. Altaf in a clear words says the Supreme Court does not have the authority to say that constituencies should be formed in such a way that a single-party majority does not exist.
The delimitation of the constituencies of Karachi is fast becoming e controversial among the religious and political parties as political leader have even started issuing statements against one another.
PPP central leader Khursheed Shah has remarked that delimitation of the constituencies should be made in whole the country, as it must not be on linguistic basis.
The PML-F Secretary General Imtiaz Ahmed Sheikh has made another demand that delimitation should be extended to Sindh and its many areas need delimitation.
Another allied party of PPP, the PML(Q) leader has proposed that why delimitation only of Karachi as it should be expanded to all over the country.
It is relevant to mention here that the delimitation of constituencies in Karachi as ordered by the Supreme Court of Pakistan seems to rise up as new crucial episode , as Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) is set to go all out to push the electoral body backtrack from the contemplated initiative.
