Mutahidda Quami Movement - Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Farooq Sattar on Saturday reiterated his demand of reopening party offices in the run-up to general elections.

Speaking to the media, the MQM-P leader alleged that the party was not being provided space to contest elections. “MQM-P is not being given political freedom to contest the upcoming polls,” said Sattar.

Referring to the delimitation of constituencies, Sattar repeated his earlier statement and claimed that Karachi was treated unjustly in the population census conducted in 2017.

"A million people from Karachi were not included in the census," claimed the MQM-P leader and added that the delimitation of constituencies and the use of development funds amounted to pre-poll rigging in the port city.

Criticising the recently sworn-in interim set-up for the province, Sattar also alleged that most cabinet members were PPP supporters, while on the minority was neutral.

“PPP is disrupting the political atmosphere in the province,” Sattar said.

The MQM-P leader also announced that he will be contesting the elections from three constituencies, including NA-247.
