Farooq offers Rabita Committee to nominate for Senate elections
Karachi (Web Desk): Muttahida Quami Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) ousted convener Farooq Sattar on Friday offered Rabita Committee members to nominate four candidates for upcoming Senate elections.
Talking to media, Farooq said he made the call to save the party from disintegrating. He told that the Rabita Committee will put forth four names for the Senate polls which he will accept.
He urged party workers not be misled by rumour-mongering Bahadurabad wing. “You (Bahadurabad wing) are deliberately holding an illegal party session. Workers should not fall for the misleading propaganda of the defunct Rabita committee.”
He also said that a notice has been served to the Bahadurabad leaders regarding their convention being held today.
“People are being forcefully being brought to the convention and this is not appropriate,” added Farooq .
He announced that there will be an intra-party election on Feb 18, recalling that he had saved the party from disintegrating in August last year.
He said MQM-P is registered under his name and only he can use the party symbol of Kite.
“After days of consultations, we have decided to offer those in Bahadurabad that they can submit their four names for Senate nominations and we will accept those,” said the party leader.
The coordination committee had wrote to Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to withdraw authority of Dr Farooq Sattar, and removed him from the position of convener. It had earlier removed Tessori from the committee.
