Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has emerged confident after its meeting with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) on Thursday, saying that issues with the latter had been dealt with and a formal announcement would be made soon.
Speaking with media, PPP Secretary General Farhatullah Babar said, “Discussions have been held with the MQM today [Thursday] and matters have been settled. It is also possible that some ministers will also be with the opposition.”
A local newspaper reported that MQM had shown interest in having a written agreement with the PPP prior to making a final decision. It said that both parties had also decided to make a committee to jointly suggest modifications to Sindh’s local government law.
Speaking with a newspaper, Babar said that matters had been agreed upon with the MQM-P, but did not offer further details.
Meanwhile, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman hinted that the joint opposition alliance had still not decided on a scenario after ousting Prime Minister Imran Khan.
In an interview to a local media outlet, the JUI-F said that several decisions still remained to be made ahead of the no-trust motion. He added that all matters would be decided after the no-trust motion succeeds.
