KARACHI: The MQM has announced its decision to sit in the opposition benches in the National Assembly and in the Senate, the party said in a statement.
“It has been decided. We will sit on the opposition benches in the National Assembly and the Senate,” MQM spokesman Wasay Jalil said.
Despite the announcement, the initial response from the govt has been that there is no threat to the govt and that all major parties are working to strengthen democracy in the country.
The MQM had earlier announced its decision to withdraw from the PPP- led coalition govt after a falling out over Sindh Home Minister Zulfikar Mirza’s statement regarding target killings in Karachi.
