No decision made yet on no-trust move: MQM-P


MQM-P leader Aminul Haq on Thursday said his party has not made a final decision about the no-trust motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan. Speaking to media, Aminul Haq said that consultations are still ongoing with the government and the Opposition, as the latter woos the government’s allies to oust Prime Minister Imran Khan ahead of the voting on the no-confidence motion.

He said that MQM-P is a separate party and makes its own decisions when asked if all the allies would announce a final decision together.

The MQM-P revealed in a twitter that during the meeting, Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, Aamir Khan, Aminul Haq, Wasim Akhtar, and Javed Hanif were present. Meanwhile, PPP’s Asif Ali-Zardari, Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and Murad Ali Shah were also present in the meeting.

A day earlier, the MQM-P had again suggested to the ruling PTI that it should bring changes in the Prime Minister’s Office to end the ongoing political crisis and the tense political environment in the country, sources claimed.

“PM Imran Khan should nominate another leader from the PTI in his place so that the coalition parties can take a positive decision,” the MQM-P told a delegation of the ruling party during a meeting at the Parliament Lodges. The PTI’s leaders met with the MQM-P lawmakers yesterday night, the sources added.

The government’s delegation comprised National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser, Defence Minister Pervez Khattak and Federal Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar while Siddiqui was leading the MQM-P side. During the meeting, the government’s team assured the MQM-P leadership that all their reservations and problems would be addressed. The MQM-P leadership was told that all the promises made by the PTI will be fulfilled, the sources added. Referring to the no-trust motion against the prime minister, the leaders of the ruling party requested its ally not to abandon them in the difficult time.
