KARACHI: The alliance with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) will continue even in the next general elections, said President of Pakistan and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari on Monday.
According to Express News, an MQM delegation met Zardari in Karachi to discuss the future of the present MQM-PPP coalition.
President Zardari said that certain elements are creating unrest to harm the PPP-led alliance.
He also added that the coalition partners will work together to ensure peace in Sindh, reported APP.
Recently, the president also directed the PPP core committee to ensure that local body polls are held before the parliamentary elections, in a bid to end the deadlock with the key coalition partner.
Sources said that President Zardari had asked the committee to focus on the legal aspects of local bodies rather than politicising the issue and creating a possible confrontation with the government’s coalition partners.
