Disgruntled Muttahida Qaumi Movement – Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Syed Ali Raza Abidi has on Thursday announced to contest election against Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) chief Mustafa Kamal as an independent candidate.
In a tweet, Ali Raza Abidi said that he stood by his earlier decision of resigning from National Assembly seat over the alliance with PSP. He said that ‘no merger, not even alliance (like IJI and MMA) with PSP is acceptable for me at all’.
Abidi, who is currently in Karbala, Iraq, said that he will resign from his seat upon return to Pakistan, and contest from the same seat in National Assembly as an independent candidate against PSP’s Mustafa Kamal. “May the best win”, he said.
I stand by my last statement. No merger, not even alliance (like IJI or MMA) with PSP is acceptable for me at all. I will resign at NA upon return to Pakistan and contest bye-Election against PSP’s MK as “Azad” from the same seat. May the best win!
