KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) on Wednesday suggested Barrister Farogh Naseem’s name for Senate chairman.
While talking to media outside Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), Khalid Maqbool Siddique said that there will be progress in proceedings of Senate if Naseem took the chair.
“I want to send this message to parliamentarians through media to consider this suggestion for the betterment of Pakistan,” he said.
Siddique also shed light on the issues party faced during last three years because of which number of MQM-P senators reduced to five from seven.
“A few of our MPAs were forced to stay abroad. Sindh Assembly had 71 MPAs from Sindh but now there are only 35,” said.
He also vowed to fight against the delimitation process claiming that 10.5 million people of Karachi were not included in the census.
“This is not acceptable because it is pre-poll rigging,” he stated.
Maqbool also alleged that horse-trading took place during recently held Senate elections. “Money looted from people was used to buy seats in the Upper House,” he added.
