Karachi delimitation challenged in SHC by MQM

Sindh High Court

Pakistan, Karachi Updates – The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) on Monday filed a petition in the Sindh High Court (SHC) challenging the Election Commission of Pakistan’s recent decision for delimitation of a number of constituencies in Karachi.

The petition filed by MQM leaders Farooq Sattar and Farogh Naseem stated that the ECP’s decision for a Karachi-centric delimitation was unconstitutional.

It added that the constitution did not allow delimitation without the holding of a fresh census.

The MQM’s petition comes in the wake of the ECP’s move for the delimitation of three constituencies of National Assembly and eight constituencies of Sindh Assembly in Karachi. The city has 20 National Assembly and 42 provincial assembly seats.
