KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain has urged the Supreme Court to issue directions for the declaration of a proper methodology for the Senate elections. According to a press statement, Altaf urged the chief justice of Pakistan, Nasirul Mulk and his learned companion judges to take suo moto notice, invoking Article 184 (3) of the Constitution, and issue directions under Articles 187, 189, and 190 of the Constitution, whereby a proper methodology for the Senate elections is declared.

The MQM leader said there was dispute over the balloting, as one party says that, to protect privacy, elections should be held through secret ballots, while others say that to avert horse-trading, elections be conducted through open ballot or show of hands.
