The Muttahida Qaumi Movement has finally nominated its parliamentary leader, Syed Sardar Ahmed, for the slot of the opposition leader in Sindh Assembly on Friday.

An MQM delegation, led by Faisal Subzwari and Dr Sagheer Ahmed, submitted the application to the Sindh Assembly secretary, adding said their party was the second largest party in the assembly with 50 MPAs and since they have decided to sit on the opposition benches, their candidate should be appointed opposition leader.

Around 20 MPAs of the party were signatories on the application. Subzwari called the government’s decision to repeal the SPLGA 2012 “an irrational move”. He vowed to continue the movement against the decision, saying “It is our democratic right to protest against the recent legislation and we will fight it through different platforms.”
