Farooq Sattar decides to field ‘Azad Pakistan’ panel in LG elections


Former MQM-P leader Dr Farooq Sattar has decided to field an independent panel named ‘Azad Pakistan’ in the local government elections scheduled for July 24. Farooq Sattar has formed a panel of his candidates in multiple union councils in the city and has asked the Election Commission of Pakistan to allot similar election symbols to candidates in the panel.

In a letter written to election commissioner Syed Nadeem Haider, Farooq Sattar said that candidates of his panel should be allotted an election symbol of laptop, or wall, or lock for the upcoming polls. It is pertinent to mention here that the Sindh High Court (SHC) on Friday rejected a plea from major political parties in the province to delay the local government elections.
