SUKKUR: Chief Minister of Sindh and the provincial President of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Qaim Ali Shah said that the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) fancied partnering with any political party that was in power, Express News reported.

Speaking to the media at Sukkur airport, he said the possibility of the MQM becoming a part of the Sindh government still exists.

However, he said that the doors for an alliance with MQM would not be closed, despite it being too late.

MQM was also a part of the PPP led government from 2008 to 2013, and sat in the opposition in the last few days of the PPP led government’s tenure, he said.

MQM had previously criticised Shah when he first went to Liyari after taking office.

The party has already declared its support for PML-N candidate Mamnoon Hussain in the presidential elections, that the PPP has decided to boycott.

Previously, PPP leader Manzoor Hussain Wasan had also stated the possibility of MQM joining the government.

On June 26, the two parties pledged to set aside their differences as the MQM announced its unconditional support for PML-N candidate Mamnoon Hussain in the upcoming presidential election.
