Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain announced his support for the prime minister-elect Nawaz Sharif and his party, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Monday, Express News reported.

He said, the decision is being taken to uphold the interest of the country.

This declaration of support from the second largest party in Sindh bodes well for PML-N who emerged as the clear winner in the general elections.

Having won the highest number of seats in the National Assembly, PML-N is expected to form the next government with Nawaz as the prime minister, who has already been offered support by various independent candidates and political parties. Premiers of China and India also extended their vote of confidence to Nawaz after the general elections.

@ Ahmed, Qouta system removed? Do you really think this is one of the issue of Karachi? I dare to you to drive out in your best car with best outfit carrying your expensive cell phone after 8 pm to buy your self a bread loaf for straight one week. After wards, let us know, if quota system is the issue of Karachi.

Police reformation is a National issue, should not be limited to Karachi. Imran Khan is pretty vocal about it for very long time.

I think it is time for MQM follower to start questioning Altaf's statement and actions as a concern citizen rather than a follower. 20+ years are more than enough to evaluate the party and it's agenda.
