MQM-P to bocott LG poll


The MQM-P announced in the early hours of Sunday that it will boycott the LG elections in Karachi and Hyderabad after its repeated requests for changes in delimitations were turned down by the ECP.

The MQM-P, an ally of the PPP in the current coalition government, lobbied for Sunday’s local body polls in Karachi and Hyderabad divisions to be postponed until the issue of delimitations is settled.
