ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information Technology and Telecommunication Syed Amin-ul-Haque on Tuesday said that the Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM-P) would contest by-elections with full-fledged preparations and would manage to win the NA seats from Karachi.

Talking to a private news channel, the federal minister said that the MQM (Pakistan) political ideology was based on principles and not on personal interests.

“The MQM (Pakistan) has always opposed using force against the political opponents,” he added.

In response to a question on whether the MQM (Pakistan) would attend the All Parties Conference (APC) called by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, he replied in the affirmative.

“MQM (Pakistan) is of the opinion that National Assembly should complete its constitutional term of five years and that general elections should be held after the completion of that time,” he said.

Earlier in January, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) announced a boycott of the second phase of the local bodies elections held in seven districts of Sindh including in Karachi and Hyderabad divisions.

The party’s statement came after it had demanded fresh delimitation before holding the local body elections, and despite the Sindh government’s announcement to delay the polls, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) insisted that they go ahead on January 15 without further interruption.
